LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team eyes to end successful 2023 season on further highs
Senna Agius and LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team already have been crowned European Moto2 Champions. In Valencia, the junior team of the German squad also wants to make its mark in Moto3-JunioGP™ and European Talent Cup.
As in previous years, the most important junior series in motorcycling - FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship, Moto2™ European Championship and European Talent Cup - will contest its season finale at the famous Valencia Grand Prix circuit. So, this weekend, the young talents want to demonstrate their skills once again this year. LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team, based in Memmingen, will also be represented by five riders in the three classes. The weekend began under unfavourable weather conditions, as all free practice sessions scheduled for Thursday afternoon were cancelled due to strong winds.
At the last event at the beginning of October in Aragón, LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team repeated last year's feat in Moto2 European Championship when celebrating a title winning season for the second time in a row with 18-year-old Australian Senna Agius. Agius is far from satisfied with his hunger for victory and therefore wants to finish the season in style in Valencia.
With the two Upper Austrian riders Jakob Rosenthaler and rookie Leo Rammerstorfer, LIQUI MOLY Intact GP Junior Team has two more promising talents in Moto3 Junior GP™ under its wing. While Rosenthaler started the season with a podium at the season opener in Estoril, but then had fluctuations in performance, he wants to finish 2023 with another highlight. The same applies to the slightly older Rammerstorfer, who has impressed in his rookie season in this highly competitive championship with a solid and steadily rising learning curve.
Newcomer Rocco Sessler caused a surprise in European Talent Cup in Aragón when he immediately made it into the main races on his debut. Repeating this success is of course a top priority, even if the team is aware of the difficulty of the task. With Sessler as an incentive, Mohammed Abulaziz Binladin should also take a significant step forward at the finale, which should ultimately enable him to qualify for the main race.
As usual, there will be a live stream on race day via the series' YouTube channel, as well as live timing from Friday.
