New young riders join the Moto3™ class

New young riders join the Moto3™ class

Once again the Moto3™ class has attracted a host of young, talented riders to grand prix racing from around the world.

The main changes in the Moto3™ entry list compared to 2014 are given below:

  • Out from last year have gone: Alex Marquez, Jack Miller, Alex Rins, Gabriel Ramos, Hafiq Azmi, Arthur Sissis, Eric Granado, Scott Deroue, Luca Gruenwald and Bryan Schouten.
  • Into the series as full-time riders come the following: Remy Gardner, Maria Herrera, Andrea Migno, Fabio Quartararo, Tatsuki Suzuki, Stefano Manzi, Darryn Binder, Hiroki Ono, Jorge Martin, Gabriel Rodrigo and Jorge Navarro who replaced Livio Loi half way through 2014.

This influx of young talent means that at the opening race of the year only four of the riders on the full-time entry list will be over the age of 21: Hiroki Ono (22), Zulfahmi Khairuddin (23), Alexis Masbou (27) and Efren Vazquez (28).

Of the thirty-four riders on the Moto3 full-time entry list, twenty-three will still be teenagers at the opening race of the year. The youngest rider competing full-time in Moto3™ in 2015 is Fabio Quartararo, who will be 15 years and 343 days old when he makes his GP debut in Qatar, at the same time becoming the youngest ever rider to compete in the Moto3™ class.
