Second place for Fernandez at Motegi, with Acosta in the Top 10

Augusto Fernandez finishes the Japanese Grand Prix on the podium, with Pedro Acosta in seventh place.

The Japanese Grand Prix weekend concluded with a great race for the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders. Augusto Fernandez was one of the fastest competitors and finished runner-up, with Pedro Acosta gaining more than ten positions and placing seventh.

Fernandez started from the third row of the grid, in eleventh. He held his position when the lights went out, before moving his way up the order and reaching fourth by Lap 9. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 rider maintained a high pace in the race to catch up with the frontrunners and take second place. His latest podium keeps him in the lead of the overall standings, with 234 points.

Acosta was competing at Motegi for the first time, and in the race the track conditions were very different from those in qualifying. Despite starting from eighteenth on the grid, he maintained a good pace to make a steady climb through the field. After entering the Top 10, he moved up to seventh place and kept the position through to the chequered flag. Acosta is the best rookie in the class with 132 points and occupies sixth in the standings.

The Moto2 riders now move on to the seventeenth round of the season, the Thai Grand Prix, which will be held from September 29th to October 2nd.

Aki Ajo – Team Manager

“Our Moto2 riders had a very good race in Japan. Augusto is very strong mentally and he showed it in the race. He kept up a good pace and was fast. The starting positions were not good for him or for Pedro, but both were able to fight back and get good results. We’re happy for them and I’m sure they’ll get good results in Thailand.”

#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ

“I’m very happy with this second place. I had to push a lot from the start, without taking too many risks, as we couldn’t make mistakes. I managed to get into the top positions and maintain a good pace. It was important to get a result like this to add points for the title fight. We’ll see how it goes in Thailand, but we’re going to give 100% from the get-go.”

#51 PEDRO ACOSTA

“It’s been a good day in which we have learned a lot. What we lacked was knowing how to adapt better to the situation, especially from the middle of the race onwards. It was important to ride here because it was a new circuit for me, and we finished in the Top 10, so it’s a good result. Now we are focusing on Thailand.”

Misfortune for Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 at Japanese GP

Jaume Masia crashes out of second place, with Dani Holgado also DNFing.

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 had a tough end to their weekend at Motegi. At the conclusion to an atypical Japanese Grand Prix, with less track time than usual and constant changes in conditions, Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado both crashed out in the race.

Masia started the Japanese Grand Prix race from the fourth row of the grid. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider was able to gain several positions in the early stages, and even set the fastest lap of the contest, as he pushed to reduce the gap to the front group. He moved up into the podium spots and made an attack for second place, but after taking the position he suffered a crash at Turn 12 with three laps remaining that took him out of the race. Masia is fifth in the overall standings with 155 points.

Holgado took part in his first Japanese Grand Prix starting from 21th on the grid, but confident of a fightback on raceday. Despite the little data that he had been able to accumulate over the weekend due to the weather conditions, Holgado was able to gain five places to open the race. Unfortunately, he suffered a crash on Lap 3 and was unable to rejoin. Despite this, he continues to be the best rookie in Moto3, occupying ninth position in the standings with 83 points.

The Thai Grand Prix is next up for the Red Bull KTM Ajo riders, running from September 29th to October 2nd at the Chang International Circuit.

Aki Ajo – Team Manager

“It was not the best race for us in Moto3, with Jaume and Dani both crashing. On the other hand, they were strong on a weekend in which the weather conditions were very different every day. Both rode very well in the dry, especially Jaume, who fought back and was close to the podium. We know that both the riders and the team are strong and we can fight for the podium at the coming races.”

#5 JAUME MASIA

“The race was difficult. We started a bit far back but I started to fight back and I felt strong enough to try and fight for the podium. The tyres wore out a lot because of that and on the final straight I found it a little tough. The pace was fast and it was hard to cut the distance to the front group. It was a shame about the crash, because we were very close to getting another podium. We’ll take away the positives and go to Thailand to try to do well again.”

#96 DANI HOLGADO

“It was a difficult weekend in Japan. We had a good feeling from FP1 but things did not go as we wanted. We were not able to start the race in the best way, and although I made up positions I had a big crash on the fourth lap. Now we move on to Thailand; it’s a new circuit so I’m really looking forward to learning it.” 

Fourth and sixth row for Fernandez and Acosta in qualifying at Motegi

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders will start from eleventh and eighteenth, respectively.

Augusto Fernandez and Pedro Acosta faced a difficult Saturday at Motegi due to the weather conditions at the Japanese track. Whilst both made their way into Q2, the rain forced the qualifying to be postponed and after it resumed Fernandez set the eleventh fastest time, while Acosta will start eighteenth in a race that is expected to be dry.

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders had a second Free Practice session in the morning under heavy rain. Given the impossibility of improving lap times, the pair went into Q2 thanks to their Friday markers, and focused on looking for a good feeling in those conditions. The session was also interrupted by a red flag and, after it resumed, Fernandez improved his time to take twelfth, with a 2:05.333 on his 12th lap of 18. Acosta, who tried not to take unnecessary risks, completed a total of 15 laps, with his top time coming on his 13th attempt with a 2:06.309. The pair were first and third on the combined timesheets.

Q2 started under the threat of rain, and after the first five minutes the session was red flagged due to a storm. After much deliberation and more than an hour of waiting, the Red Bull KTM Ajo pair were finally able to resume qualifying and try to improve their times, although both took a cautious approach. Fernandez completed a total of eight laps, achieving eleventh on the grid with a 2:07.348. Acosta will start from eighteenth after setting a 2:09.394 on his last lap.

The 22-lap Moto2 race will take place on Sunday at 1:20 PM local time.

#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ

“We have to be happy with the result because it could have been much worse due to the track conditions. The fourth row is not what we wanted, but the rain hindered qualifying. It was very risky and there was a lot to lose. The forecast for the race is for it to be dry, so we will try to recover positions on the opening laps and fight to be at the front.”

#51 PEDRO ACOSTA

“It was a difficult day due to the rain and us not being able to get in many laps with the bike. We are starting from the sixth row, so tomorrow we will have to fight back, but it was important not to take risks today. Tomorrow there will be different conditions, so we will go out there to give it our best.”

Qualifying in difficult conditions for Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3

Jaume Masia will start tenth at Motegi and Dani Holgado 21st.

The second Free Practice for the Japanese Grand Prix was held in the rain, and as such the riders did not improve their lap times from Friday. Assured of a place in Q2, Masia focused on finding a better feeling. In the final minutes he would set a time worth first place, but the lap was eventually cancelled. A 2:10.892 achieved on his 11th lap of 14 put him eleventh – 14th overall. The rain hindered the work of Holgado, who nevertheless progressively improved his times during the session. His 2:11.265 on his final lap left him in eighteenth position, meaning he would have to contest Q1.

Holgado tried to qualify in the Top 4 in Q1 and would increase his pace and improve his feeling, but a 2:13.237 on his seventh and final lap would only give him seventh place. He will start from the seventh row of the grid, in 21st.

Masia was in the top positions from the start of Q2. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rider worked hard to maintain his position and secure a spot on the front row of the grid, but a lap that would have placed him in the Top3 was cancelled due to a yellow flag. Masia set a 2:12.229 on his last lap, putting him on the third row of the grid, in tenth place.

The 20-lap Moto3 Japanese Grand Prix will take place on Sunday at 12 PM local time.

“I’m happy. Tomorrow we start in the Top 10 despite the very tricky  conditions with the rain. I was competitive today and fought for the top positions, even though in the end it wasn’t to be. The team and I are working well and we hope to have a good race tomorrow. We’ll have to keep an eye on the weather, although we hope the race will be dry.”

#96 DANI HOLGADO

“It was a bit of a difficult day for us. We had a hard time adapting to the rainy conditions here at Motegi. Still, I’m confident ahead of tomorrow and we’re ready for the race. We are starting from far back, but it gives me more motivation to do well on Sunday. We are working to do well in the race and, above all, to enjoy ourselves.”

Strong start for Augusto Fernandez and Pedro Acosta in Japan

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders finish Friday in first and third place, respectively.

The Japanese Grand Prix began with the threat of rain and mixed track conditions for the Moto2 riders. With only one session held on Friday, Augusto Fernandez and Pedro Acosta worked hard to achieve good results and were two of the standout riders of the day. Fernandez led the session and set the fastest time, while Acosta concluded FP1 in third position.

Fernandez was the man to beat in Friday’s solitary session at Mobility Resort Motegi. The current Moto2 World Championship leader led the timesheets in the opening laps, improving lap by lap. After several changes of position, although always remaining in the Top 3, he completed FP1 with a 1:50.493 best time, set on his 14th lap of 17. Acosta was riding at the Japanese track for the first time, with the clear objective of getting a good feeling and working with qualifying in mind. He was consistent and quickly moved into the Top 10, and in the final stretch of FP1 he snatched third place, with a time of 1:50.783, on his fourteenth lap.

Moto2 qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix takes place on Saturday, 24th September, from 1:30 PM local time.

“Today was an atypical day with only one session, so we had to set good times quickly. We did that and I’m happy. We have clear ideas for the rest of the weekend, although the forecast is that tomorrow it will rain and today was completely dry. I’m working well with the team and we’re confident for tomorrow.”

#51 PEDRO ACOSTA

“The improvements we achieved today are important. It’s a new circuit for me and we have one less session, so we couldn’t relax. I’m happy with today’s result; we were fast and we finished in the Top 3. It was a good Friday – we could say it was one of the best this year. We’ll see what the weather is like tomorrow, but regardless of whether it’s dry or wet, we’ll give 100%.”

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 complete short Friday at Japanese Grand Prix

Jaume Masia is fourteenth and Dani Holgado sixteenth in first Free Practice.

The first Japanese Grand Prix in three years got underway this Friday at Motegi, with a reduced schedule run as the paddock made the transition from Aragon. Jaume Masia had a good feeling on day one and finished in fourteenth position. Dani Holgado was sixteenth on his first appearance at the Japanese circuit.

Masia started FP1 setting a positive pace, heading the timesheets early on. After stopping in the pits, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider rejoined the session and remained in the top positions, although track conditions in the final stretch made things difficult for the competitors. After 15 laps, he finished in fourteenth position with a time of 1:58.098, set on his last lap. Holgado rode at the Japanese circuit for the first time and quickly felt comfortable, riding in the Top 10 from the start. The rookie worked to adapt to an unfamiliar track, improving his times lap after lap. Holgado set a best time of 1:58.248 on his last lap, which placed him in sixteenth.

Qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix will be held on Saturday from 12:35 PM local time.

“I’m happy to return to Motegi after several years away. It was a very short day because we only had one session, but I have a good feeling. We have the potential to do well tomorrow and I am confident of getting a positive result. We will continue to work with the team to finetune details for qualifying, although we will have to keep an eye on the weather.”

#96 DANI HOLGADO

“I have a good feeling at what is a new circuit for me. Motegi is quite technical and long, but even so I am happy because we have worked a lot on the bike. I rode alone and improved my times lap after lap. We know what our strengths are so we are positive about doing our best.”

Fernandez and Acosta to face Japanese GP in top form

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders head to Motegi after the double podium acheived in Aragon.

After both riders achieved podium finishes at the Aragon Grand Prix, Augusto Fernandez and Pedro Acosta move on to Japanese Grand Prix, which returns to the calendar after a two-year absence. Fernandez is the Moto2 World Championship leader and aims to increase the gap over his nearest rivals, as well as fighting for victory on raceday. Acosta will face a new circuit for him and try to build on his recent rostrum.

Fernandez now has four wins and three podium finishes in 2022, but has unfinished business at Motegi, where he has yet to place in the Top 3. After a very positive weekend at MotorLand Aragon, where he finished third after leading for part of the race, he faces this second consecutive weekend of action with great motivation and ready to score as many points as possible. With 214 points, he tops the standings in the Moto2 World Championship.

Acosta will compete at Motegi for the first time. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rookie earned a great victory at the Aragon Grand Prix, just three races after his return from injury. He continues to progress in the class and already has two wins and one pole position to his name. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 rider will now focus on continuing to improve and being competitive from Friday onwards in Japan, and is sixth overall with 123 points.

At previous Japanese Grands Prix, Red Bull KTM Ajo have achieved good results. In 2019, Jorge Martin was third. Miguel Oliveira was third in 2018 and Johann Zarco second in 2016. The latter also took victory in Japan in 2015.

“The flyaways are a difficult part of the season, and they come at the end of the campaign. You have to get as many points as possible, as they will be important in the fight for the title. We will try to do our best and work hard from Friday to get the victory. We are entering a part of the year where we cannot make any mistakes, so we will try to fight for the podium at every race.”

51 PEDRO ACOSTA
“It is my first flyaway in the World Championship. Everybody has been away for two or three years due to the pandemic, so I think that could work in our favour. I’m not setting a specific goal for myself, but rather we want to continue improving on Saturdays so that the race goes well. If we continue in this way, I am convinced that we will be able to do good things. The important thing is to work well and continue to achieve good results.”

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 kick off flyaways at Motegi

Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado face the final stretch of the season with maximum motivation.

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 riders head to the Japanese Grand Prix for the second round of three in as many weekends, following the Aragon Grand Prix. Jaume Masia arrives at a demanding circuit after finishing eighth at MotorLand. Dani Holgado got his first podium in Moto3 last time out and looks to build on that result.

Masia did not have his best weekend at the Aragon Grand Prix. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider worked to find a good feeling throughout the events and, after starting from the third row of the grid, pushed to climb up the order and fight in the lead group. He finished eighth in a closely contested race and is now fifth in the standings with 155 points.

Holgado was third at MotorLand, achieving his first podium in the process. Still the top rookie in Moto3, with a rostrum, a pole position and three front rows, the Red Bull KTM Ajo talent continues to make great progress every weekend and begins the flyaways ready to fight for a good result in Japan. With 83 points, he is ninth in the Moto3 standings.

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 last took a podium at Motegi in 2018, when Darryn Binder earned a third place, and in 2017, with Niccolo Antonelli coming home second.

“The Aragon Grand Prix did not go as we had hoped. We had the potential to get a better result, but sometimes things don’t go your way. We come to Japan after two years away, so I’m really looking forward to it. The objective is to work from Friday at 100% and do well day after day. The final stretch of the season is beginning, and it is important to get the best results at each Grand Prix.”

96 DANI HOLGADO
“I’m very happy with the podium at Aragón. The flyaways are something completely new for me, but I face it with great enthusiasm and a lot of motivation. I can’t wait to continue working with the bike and with the team. It is important to gain experience and try to be as high up the order as possible.”

Double podium for Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 at MotorLand

Pedro Acosta wins the Aragon Grand Prix and Augusto Fernandez places third.

Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 had a great race at the Aragon Grand Prix, as Pedro Acosta took victory at MotorLand and was joined on the podium by Augusto Fernandez.

Fernandez was on the front row and moved into the lead in the early stages of the Aragon Grand Prix. Whilst he would hold the position for a number of laps, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider was eventually passed by his teammate and another rider, holding on to secure a podium finish in third. With 214 points, he remains the leader of the Moto2 World Championship.

Acosta had started the race from the second row, sixth on the grid, and made steady progress up the order before reaching second place. Behind Fernandez, he maintained a good race pace under the high temperatures present at the Spanish track, then overtook his teammate at the midway mark and found some extra speed to break away. He crossed the line with a two-second lead over his nearest rival. Acosta is now sixth in the overall standings, with 123 points.

Red Bull KTM Ajo travel to Japan this week to contest the sixteenth round of the season, held from September 23rd-25th at Motegi.

Aki Ajo – Team Manager

“It has been an excellent day for the team. A podium double is always a very good thing and it has been a special moment. Also, Augusto is leading the championship. It is a very good moment for the team. He rode a very intelligent race to take the maximum possible points. I am also very happy for Pedro. We have seen that he is in good form again, and after just three races he has won, so we can see that his recovery is going well. We have to continue with our work and stay focused for the remainder of the season.”

#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ

“I am happy with this podium. We increased the advantage in the title chase, so we are pleased about that. It is bittersweet for me, because I wanted to fight for the victory and I pushed hard from the beginning. At the end of the race I did not feel so comfortable and the front tyre prevented me from pushing more. Today was not the day to take more risks than necessary, but rather to score as many points as possible.”

#51 PEDRO ACOSTA

“It was a good race. The team gave me the peace of mind to do well and took the pressure off me. If we didn’t get the victory, it didn’t matter. That was one of the keys that determined the final result. I have to thank the team for all their work, as I felt very comfortable today. The pace of the race was high and I was able to fight for the victory. We will try to get a good result in the next races.”

Holgado takes first podium and Masia finishes in Top 10 at Aragon GP

Dani Holgado places third in the race, while Jaume Masia is eighth.

The Red Bull KTM Ajo riders experienced a demanding race at the Aragon Grand Prix, ending with Dani Holgado taking a first Moto3 World Championship podium by crossing the finish line third, and Jaume Masia earning eighth place.

Holgado held his third position on the grid on the opening laps, and rode intelligently to stick with the front group. Pushing hard, he was able to establish enough of a gap over his rivals to achieve his first podium finish in the Moto3 World Championship. With 83 points, he is now ninth in the overall standings.

Masia started the Aragon Grand Prix from the third row. He maintained his position and remained within a large group as he matched the high pace of those around him. Involved in constant exchanges of positions in a battle for the Top 5, he took the chequered flag eighth. The Spaniard now occupies fifth place in the Moto3 standings with 155 points.

The next round of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix, takes place at Motegi from September 22th-25th.

Aki Ajo – Team Manager

“Dani had an excellent race. We have to remember that he is a rookie, but in recent races he has not seemed like one. The work he is doing has shown that he has a lot of potential, and also that he works in a very professional way. I want to thank the whole team for their work. Jaume’s race wasn’t like we expected. He was in the second group and there was a lot of fighting, which helped the front group to escape. He didn’t have the pace to catch them up this time, but I’m sure that in Japan he will.”

#5 JAUME MASIA

“It was a very difficult race. We worked hard this weekend and yesterday in QP we were able to salvage the situation and start from the third row. The pace of the race was very high and we fought hard to stay at the front. In the end we finished in the Top 10; it’s time to keep improving and do even better next week in Japan.”

#96 DANI HOLGADO

“I’m very happy to have achieved my first podium in Moto3. It was a tough race, with a very high pace. Until halfway through the race I was even thinking about the win, but this result was so important that I didn’t want to go overboard with the risks I took. The team also deserve it because we are working very well. Japan will be a new circuit for me, but we will be very motivated and want to do well.”
