Holgado brings it home! GASGAS lifts FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship in Valencia
GASGAS wraps a memorable first season in road racing world championship action with Daniel Holgado mastering the fiercely competitive FIM Moto3 Junior series.
- Holgado locks the 2021 FIM Moto3 Junior world title in Valencia
- The 16-year-old makes the grade after 5 wins and 8 podiums from 12 races
- Success story for GASGAS with the Aspar team and Moto3 machinery this season
Riding the RC 250 GP machine taken to victory in Moto3 Grand Prix in 2021, Holgado showed he’s the next hotshot on the block by grabbing the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship ‘bull’ by the horns. The teenager fronted the pack with four wins in the first five rounds to stake his claim to the crown.
The Spaniard added another three trophies in the competition that circled Grand Prix venues on the Iberian Peninsula like the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto and MotorLand Aragon.
The contest (along with the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup) has ritually been the brightest proving ground for youngsters aiming for the heights of MotoGP™.
2020 champion Izan Guevara made the step to the GASGAS Aspar Grand Prix squad and clinched a race win in his first season in 2021.
Holgado kept the Aspar streak running on Saturday in Valencia when main title rival David Muñoz was forced to start from pitlane and failed to score any points. In the second race on Sunday Holgado swept to his fifth chequered flag, marking his authority one more time.
