Aspar celebrates the realisation of a dream

Aspar celebrates the realisation of a dream

At a party to celebrate 30 years of involvement in the world of motorcycling, Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’ also officially presented his project of having teams in all three categories of the World Championship in 2010.

The Prince Felipe Museum of Science in Valencia hosted a party last night to celebrate the 30-year history of the participation of Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’ in the world of motorcycling.

In addition to the celebration of the past, the future was also marked with the official presentation of the Aspar Team for the 2010 season. This year the Team Manager will realise a dream by having representatives in all three categories of the World Championship.

Aspar brought together the various figures who have contributed to his long and impressive history in the sport, including friends and former on-track competitors such as Ángel Nieto and Álex Crivillé, as well as riders who have competed for his teams throughout the years, both past and present. Juan Bautista Borja, Jerónimo Vidal, Arnaud Vincent, the Nieto brothers, Ángel Rodríguez, Héctor Barberá, Héctor Faubel, Sergio Gadea, Julián Miralles Jr, Mateo Túnez, Álex de Angelis, Álvaro Bautista, Bradley Smith, Julián Simón, Mike Di Meglio and Nico Terol were all in attendance, as were sponsors, journalists and personal friends of Aspar.

A thrilled Aspar, surrounded by his riders, said: “To see this team so vast, so competitive, so in tune with one another, is almost the tip of the iceberg of these 30 years – three decades in which we have grown, without stopping.”

In reference to the new season, which starts in just over two weeks, Aspar stated: “In 125cc I hope we’ll retain the title and in Moto2, despite it being a new category, I ‘d like to be fighting for the title in the same manner. In MotoGP, if only! We can be amongst the top ten at the end of the year. In any case we’re very excited about this huge project we’re undertaking.”
