Get yourself into the mood for the Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana with these number related facts.

343 – Johann Zarco has already attained a total of 343 points in the Moto2™ world championship this year and if he finishes in 12th place or better in Valencia he will set a new record highest points total in the intermediate-class of grand prix racing, a record that is currently held by Tito Rabat who scored 346 points when winning the Moto2™ world title last year.

100 – The win by Dani Pedrosa in Malaysia was the 100th win for Spanish riders in MotoGP™ (Jorge Lorenzo – 39, Dani Pedrosa – 28, Marc Marquez – 24, Sete Gibernau – 8, Toni Elias – 1) since it became the premier-class of grand prix racing in 2002. Spain are the nation with the most wins in the MotoGP™ class - the number of victories for other nations are: Italy – 91, Australia – 40, USA – 4, Brazil – 3, Japan - 3

100 – Yonny Hernandez is scheduled to make his 100th grand prix start in Valencia. Hernandez made 31 starts in the Moto2™ class before moving up to MotoGP™ in 2012 and is scheduled to make his 69th start in the premier-class in Valencia.

99 – Dani Pedrosa’s win in Malaysia was his 99th podium finish in the MotoGP™ class. Another top three finish will make him just the second rider, along with Valentino Rossi, to reach the milestone of 100 podium finishes in the premier-class.

96 – Jorge Lorenzo’s second place finish in Malaysia was the 96th time he has stood on the podium in the MotoGP™ class – one more premier-class podium finish than five-time 500cc world champion Mick Doohan. Only Pedrosa and Rossi have stood on the podium more times than Lorenzo in the premier-class.

17 – Both Valentino Rossi and Bradley Smith have scored points in all seventeen MotoGP™ races so far in 2015. Another top fifteen finish for either rider in Valencia and they will equal the record for most point scoring finishes in a season in the MotoGP™ class currently jointly held by Casey Stoner (2007), Valentino Rossi (2008) and Jorge Lorenzo (2010).

7 – At the Malaysian Grand Prix Dani Pedrosa became the seventh different rider to start on pole in the MotoGP™ class in 2015. This is the greatest number of different riders on pole in MotoGP™ since 2006.

7 – The seven-point advantage that Valentino Rossi has over Jorge Lorenzo is the smallest margin between the top two riders when arriving at the final race of the year since 1992 (see above for further details).

6.726 Seconds - The first fifteen riders across the line in the Moto3™ race last year at Valencia were covered by just 6.726 seconds.

2 – Only two riders have overturned a points deficit in the final race of the year to become premier-class world champion; Wayne Rainey in 1992 and Nicky Hayden in 2006.

1 - Valencia is the only circuit on the current grand prix schedule that Kalex have not had a Moto2™ victory.
