Masia and Holgado to round off season at Valencia Grand Prix02/11/2022
The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 duo arrive at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo to compete in their home Grand Prix.
Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado face the last race of the 2022 season this weekend at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 riders face the Valencian Grand Prix aiming for a good result at one of their favourite circuits, in front of a home crowd.
Masia concluded the series’ trip to Asia fighting for victory until the last lap at the Malaysian Grand Prix. After an intense final stretch of the season, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider is looking to end the year in the best possible way at a circuit where he was on the rostrum in 2021, finishing in third place. Masia is highly motivated to challenge for the win in the final round of the year. With 177 points, he is sixth in the Moto3 standings.
Holgado faces his most special Grand Prix of the season. At the track where he became FIM Moto3 Junior World Champion in 2021, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider has a chance of earning the Rookie of the Year honour this time around. After four difficult races on the flyaway rounds, Holgado has made great progress and continues to show that he has the potential to take another podium finish before the end of the season. He is currently eleventh in the standings with 97 points.
The 23-lap Moto3 Valencian Grand Prix will take place on Sunday, November 6th at 11 AM, local time.
