AragonGP: Masia and Holgado set sights on good results14/09/2022
Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 face the fifteenth round of the season at MotorLand Aragon.
The Aragon Grand Prix, the fifteenth round of the season, takes place this weekend in Spain. Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado have extra motivation for a home round at a circuit they both know well and are searching for strong results before the series moves on to Asia.
Masia had one of his best races so far this season at the San Marino GP a fortnight ago, climbing from the fourth row of the grid to second place at the chequered flag. The podium provides an added incentive for this weekend, as does his double victory at the Aragonese circuit in 2020. Masia is fourth in the Moto3 World Championship with 147 points.
Holgado has taken great results in other competitions at this weekend’s venue. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rider, who started from the front row of the grid at Misano, remains the best rookie in Moto3, and is targeting further improvement and a first podium of the season in Aragon. With 67 points he occupies tenth position in the overall standings.
The 19-lap Moto3 Aragon Grand Prix race will take place on Sunday, September 18th at 11 AM local time. The last podiums finish for Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 at the Aragonese circuit were in 2020, when Raul Fernandez was third in the Aragon Grand Prix and Kaito Toba also finished third in the Teruel Grand Prix.

#5 JAUME MASIA
“The podium we took at Misano was very important for us, so we go to Aragon with renewed energy. I want to keep up these results and we will continue working in the same way. Aragon is a circuit that suits me, and where I have already achieved a victory before. I think we have a chance to win, and we will fight for the best result this weekend.”
#96 DANI HOLGADO
“MotorLand is a circuit that I know very well and where I have achieved great results in other series. We want to keep improving and moving forward every weekend. The objective is to have more determination on the last laps since that is where we are missing out on the chance to fight for victory and for the podium. We will look for a good setup to get the bike ready and fight at the front.”
