Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 faces first round of triple header at MotorLand14/09/2022
Augusto Fernandez and Pedro Acosta will compete in the Aragon Grand Prix this weekend.
The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders arrive at MotorLand this weekend. Series leader Augusto Fernandez returns to one of his favourite circuits, whilst Pedro Acosta looks to continue progressing in the intermediate class.
Fernandez faces the Aragon Grand Prix ready to fight for victory at a favourable circuit for him. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rider was back on the podium at Misano, regaining the leadership of the Moto2 standings in the process. With four victories and two podiums to his name in 2022, Fernandez is one of the most consistent riders in the class and has his sights set on a strong result before the flyaways begin.
Acosta finished the San Marino Grand Prix in sixth position. He continues to get back to his best form and, after having made great progress in previous rounds, hopes to have a solid result this weekend at MotorLand Aragon. Acosta has performed well there in the past and is confident ahead of the return to Spain.
The 21-lap Moto2 race will be held on Sunday, September 18th at 12:20 PM local time. Red Bull KTM Ajo have achieved good results at MotorLand Aragon in previous years: Raul Fernandez and Remy Gardner were first and second there in 2021, Jorge Martin third in 2020, while Brad Binder won in 2019 and 2018. Miguel Oliveira was also on the podium in 2017.

#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ
“I’m looking forward to Aragon. It is a circuit that I like and where I managed to get on the podium last year. It is one of my favourites so it will be a special Grand Prix. We are going to continue working as we have done up to now, doing our best and achieving good results. The goal is to fight for the win on Sunday and score points in the World Championship.”
#51 PEDRO ACOSTA
“MotorLand is a circuit where I have done well in the past. We have to find the right feeling from the beginning of the weekend. In Misano it was like that, and I think that if we improve on Saturdays, we can be more competitive. Our main objective is to improve in qualifying because we know that it is our weakest point. We will go out there and give it our best to have a good weekend in Aragon.”
