Moto3 wunderkind Jorge Martin will move to the Moto2 championship next season after signing a deal with the Red Bull KTM squad.
Winner of the eighth edition of Red Bull Rookies Cup, Martin debuted in Moto3 in 2015, earning the first points of his career that year. Last season he claimed his first win, as well as eight podium finishes, and placed fourth in the overall standings. The Spaniard is currently fourth, with three wins from the six Grands Prix held to date.
“I think this is an important move for my career and I’m really happy to have found this agreement with KTM and Red Bull. It is such a competitive brand and I already cannot wait to start working this winter to attack next season,” said the Spaniard.
“I want to learn as much as I can in the first year and fight to be at the top in the second. Obviously I have good memories of KTM from the Red Bull Rookies Cup. It is important to be together again and I hope we can get the same sort of results we managed last time.”
