KTM is delighted to have finalized the arrangements for Aki Ajo to continue to manage the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 Factory Team through 2013, Pit Beirer Head of KTM Motorsports has reported. Aki signed on the dotted line at KTM headquarters, confirming the already agreed verbal commitment from both sides.
"Aki did a fantastic job with the factory team in our first year back in MotoGP competition in the new Moto3 category. He pushed us hard to reach a very high level. He asked the right questions and wanted the right materials. We developed the bike in record time and the results speak for themselves. That we were able to take the team to such a high level and win the Moto3 World Championship with Sandro Cortese and take the manufacturer’s title was a remarkable result."
