Pedro Acosta was born in Mazarron, Murcia (Spain) on May 25th, 2004. His first experience riding a motorcycle was at the age of five, when his father gave him a motocross bike. From that moment on, there was no dulling his passion for two wheels. Aged 12, in 2016, he was runner-up in the Spanish Mini Velocidad champion, and a year later he was proclaimed Spanish champion in pre-Moto3.

His debut in international competition took place in 2018 in the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship, as part of the FIM CEV, as he participated in three rounds that season -aged just 14.

In 2019 he enjoyed another season in the FIM CEV. That same year, Acosta also raced in the Red Bull Rookies Cup for the first time. His adaptation to the promotional cup was very fast, and he was considered a breakout star, claiming three victories, and finishing runner-up in the series.

2020 was a dream year for Acosta. He won the first six races of the Red Bull Rookies Cup, becoming the first rider in history to do so. His dominance and consistency were such that he was proclaimed champion with two rounds to spare. In addition, he also competed in the Moto3 FIM CEV, for the third consecutive season, finishing in third place in the overall standings.

His good performances and his youth mean there is a very promising future ahead for Acosta. Red Bull KTM Ajo have brought him in for the 2021 season, giving him the opportunity to compete with the Moto 3 team in a new class.
