Masia and Holgado look for good results at San Marino Grand Prix


The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 riders face Round 14 at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.


The Moto3 World Championship contests the San Marino Grand Prix this weekend, and Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado arrive at Misano motivated after an intense Austrian Grand Prix last time out.

Masia experienced a difficult weekend at the Red Bull Ring. Starting from twelfth on the grid, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider quickly broke into the Top 10 in a closely contested race. After suffering a crash on the final laps, he was able to remount and recover several positions to place 18th. Masia is fifth in the overall standings with 127 points.

Holgado took his first Grand Prix pole in Austria after setting a great last lap in Q2. The Moto3 rookie continues to make progress, and in the race he handled constant changes of positions and a high race pace. Finishing eighth, he moved up to 56 points in the overall standings, where he is 13th.

The 23-lap Moto3 San Marino Grand Prix will take place on Sunday, September 4th at 11 AM local time. Red Bull KTM Ajo’s last Moto3 win at Misano was Brad Binder’s in 2019.

“The race in Austria didn’t go as expected, so now we have to work hard to turn things around and get a good result at Misano. I’ve recharged my batteries this week and I’m very motivated to fight for the top positions, starting on Friday.”

“We are going to Misano highly motivated after having achieved pole position last time out. We want to show once again that we are fast. The last part of the race in Austria did not go as we expected, but I am planning the weekend to be more competitive on those final laps. We will work focusing on fighting for the podium on Sunday and trying to win the race.”
