Pedro Acosta and Albert Arenas return to work at the German GP14/06/2023
The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 duo will take part in the German Grand Prix at Sachsenring.
The second race of three in consecutive weekends see Pedro Acosta and Albert Arenas head to Sachsenring for the German Grand Prix, where the latter will be targeting back-to-back wins after success at Mugello. Arenas will look to improve his results after a difficult Italian Grand Prix.
Acosta was peerless at the Italian Grand Prix. After starting from the front row of the grid, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider led the race and managed his pace perfectly to cross the line over 7 seconds clear of his nearest rival. Following a great start to an intense month of June, Acosta arrives at Sachsenring with a lot of motivation to continue in winning form, at a track where he finished in second place last season. He has also cut the gap to the top in the overall standings, and is currently second with 99 points.
Arenas did not have his best weekend in Italy, despite the fact that he worked hard to get a good feeling on his KTM. After starting the race in fifteenth position, Arenas was amongst the points until he crashed on the closing laps, remounting to finish the race in 23rd. He wants to make amends at the German Grand Prix and continue his steady progress with the Red Bull KTM Ajo team. He currently sits 13th overall with 27 points.
Red Bull KTM Ajo were the main protagonists at the German Grand Prix in 2022, with victory for Augusto Fernández and Acosta’s second place. In previous years, Remy Gardner also won at Sachsenring in 2021, while Brad Binder was second in 2019 and won in 2018. They are currently second in the Team standings with 123 points. The Moto2 race will take place on Sunday June 18th, starting at 12:15 PM local time.
#37 PEDRO ACOSTA
“Last year we did quite well at Sachsenring. It was our second podium of the year and I think it’s a circuit that suits our style and our bike quite well. It’s always gratifying to get back to racing after winning, so we’re going to try to be just as competitive this weekend.”

“We come to Sachsenring wanting to reset. At Mugello there was something that didn’t work for us and I didn’t feel comfortable, so it will be important to understand the difficulties we had in order to learn from them and correct them. We are going to draw up a plan and approach the Grand Prix in such a way that I can ride better and go fast throughout the three days in Germany.”
