motograndprix.com gives you the chance to relive the Championship winning season of Daijiro Katoh

We have put together all the best bits from Daijiro Katoh´s 250cc Championship winning season into one video which you can watch now at motograndprix.com. Captured are some of the most important and exciting moments from the Japanese rider´s 2001 success story, which prior to the final race of the season has seen him win 10 out the 15 races that have taken place.

Katoh takes the title in only his second full year in the World Championships, after his debut season had seen him finish in third place behind Jacque and Nakano. That year he won four Grands Prix, which he added to the two wins he had previously as a wildcard from 1998 and 1997. Katoh becomes only the second Japanese rider to have won in the class, the first being his great rival Tetsuya Harada, who won back in 1993.
