How many current Moto3™ riders have won at Catalunya before?

All of the vital Moto3™ information you need to know ahead of the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Here are some interesting facts about the Moto3™ race at the Circuit de Barcelona:

  • None of the riders currently competing in the Moto3™ class has had a grand prix victory at the Catalunya circuit.

  • There has not been a Spanish win in the Moto3™ class since Efren Vazquez won in Malaysia last year. This is the longest sequence of lightweight-class GP races without a Spanish winner since the final four races of 2008 together with the first three races of 2009.

  • Spanish riders have won the lightweight-class grand prix at the Catalunya circuit for the last five years; the last non-Spanish winner was Andrea Iannone in 2009.

  • For the last five years, the rider who has won the lightweight-class grand prix in Catalunya has started from pole position.

  • The best GP result for championship leader Danny Kent at the Catalunya circuit is 11th in the 125cc race in 2011. Since taking the lead in the championship standings with a win in Austin, Kent has increased his lead in the championship at each of the following races.

  • Enea Bastianini’s second place finish last year at the Catalan GP was his first grand prix podium, in just his seventh GP start.  He also qualified in second place on the grid last year in Catalunya – his only front row start so far in GP racing.

  • Efren Vazquez finished third last year at the Catalan GP – his first GP podium finish at the circuit.

The Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya Moto3™ on-track action kicks off on Friday at 09:00am local time in Barcelona.
