Valencian rider Nico Terol, who last year claimed the 125cc world title at his home track, will be honoured this Sunday, by having the fourth corner of the track renamed "Nico Terol Corner".

A ceremony will be held on Sunday morning before the Gran Premio Generali de la Comunitat Valencia to name Turn 4 “Nico Terol Corner”, and put the 24-year-old Spanish youngster in the history books among other riders such as Mick Doohan and Jorge Martinez Aspar, who also have bends at the circuit named after them.

On his prospects in the final Moto2™ race of the year with his Mapfre Aspar Moto2 Team and on receiving the homage on Sunday, Terol explained: "I have precious memories of the Valencia circuit. I know it perfectly. It was there that I proclaimed world champion. The fans are great. It will be great that a curve bears my name for winning the title last year. I'm going to keep working hard to try and end the year with a good result. Not just for me, but also for the team and the sponsors, who have helped me a lot this year. I’m going to give everything from the first practice; I have a lot of confidence and I hope to have the best race of the year."
