Tech3-bound Pedro Acosta wins 2023 Moto2 title

Pedro Acosta has emerged as one of the most promising talents in the MotoGP paddock, quickly making a mark in his debut season in Moto3.

Securing a podium finish in his first race at the Qatar GP, Acosta went on to claim his first victory at the following Doha GP, starting from pitlane. He then won the Moto3 crown in his first attempt.

In 2022, he moved up to Moto2, remaining in the Ajo KTM system, and managed to win three times, finishing fifth in the standings.

Sticking with Ajo KTM for the 2023 season in Moto2, Acosta captured victory in seven races, expanding his championship lead over chief rival Tony Arbolino.

At the Malaysian GP, Acosta finished second, increasing his lead to 77 points over Arbolino and securing the Moto2 champion title for 2023.

His promotion to the MotoGP class in 2024 was confirmed when KTM exercised the option on his contract, although they faced the challenge of finding a race seat.

While Acosta has already tested KTM MotoGP machinery, his official MotoGP class debut is set for the post-race Valencia test on 29 November.

Aki Ajo, his Moto2 team boss, described Acosta as one of the last of the “old school” riders, praising his unique approach. Additionally, Herve Poncharal, his future Tech3 MotoGP boss, commended Acosta’s unusual readiness to focus fully on winning the Moto2 title instead of familiarizing himself with his future bike.

Moto3 title battle tightens up

Following the intense 15-lap Malaysian GP, the Moto3 championship race is finely poised with two rounds to go.

A maiden win for Collin Veijer, ahead of his Intact GP team-mate Ayumu Sasaki, has propelled Jaume Masia into a 13-point lead in the standings. Meanwhile, crashes for David Alonso and Daniel Holgado have left them 41 points behind in the title battle.
