Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 motivated for the British Grand Prix03/08/2022
Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado will contest the twelfth round of the season at Silverstone.
The Moto3 World Championship season resumes after a five-week summer break at British GP. Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado head to Silverstone in top form to face the second half of the campaign.
At the Dutch GP, Masia fought for the podium after starting from the second row and remaining in the front group for almost the entirety of the contest. Unfortunately, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider was involved in an incident with another rider and was unable to complete the race. Masia is fifth in the Moto3 standings with 107 points and comes into the British GP ready to fight for the top positions.
Holgado, who dropped down several positions off the start in Assen, maintained a good race pace and climbed up the order to finish the Dutch GP in sixth. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rookie continues to make progress in the class, and visits Silverstone for the first time focused on taking another step forward. With 48 points to his name, Holgado is thirteenth in the series.
The 17-lap Moto3 British GP will take place on Sunday, August 7th at 11:20 AM local time. Red Bull KTM Ajo’s last victory at Silverstone was with Brad Binder, in 2016.

“I’ve been really looking forward to getting to Silverstone and working with the team again. I have taken advantage of the break to prepare well for the second part of the season and we will give our all from Friday. We are clear about things and we will fight to be up at the front throughout the weekend.”

“Silverstone is a new circuit for me, but the objective remains the same. We will try to be in the front group, since that is where we learn the most, and we will fight for the podium and the victory. I’m very motivated because I have worked hard in this five-week break, both on my fitness and with the bike. I’m prepared to be strong from the start of the weekend.”
