Intact GP Juniors line up in Valencia
The junior division of the German racing team LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP to contest at the season’s round two in FIM JuniorGP™ series this weekend in Spain.
The team from Memmingen in the Allgäu region of Germany looking back on a fantastic debut in the new championship a week and a half ago in Estoril, Portugal, with pole position and two race wins for Senna Agius and third place for Jakob Rosenthaler. Australian rider Agius, who is only 17 years old, is therefore considered as the logical favourite in Moto2™ European Championship in Valencia.
In JuniorGP™ Moto3 class, LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team wants to confirm the success of Estoril with Jakob Rosenthaler and to continue the learning curve with his Upper Austrian compatriot Leo Rammerstorfer to make the leap into the points with him. In European Talent Cup, the chances of success are somewhat lower, as 15-year-old Mohammed Abdalaziz Binladin recently failed to qualify for the main race.
For the 2023 season, there are significant changes to the schedule for Saturday and Sunday. As it is in Grand Prix, Sunday morning’s warm-up session has been dropped for all classes and the qualifying format for the Moto3 class has been adapted to be the same as in Grand Prix racing, with a Q1 and a Q2. For Moto2 and the European Talent Cup, however, everything remains the same: two 40-minute qualifying sessions with a combined timesheet used as a ranking for the grid.
On race day, as usual, there will be a live stream via the series' YouTube channel, as well as live timing starting on Friday.
