Drive M7 Aspar Information:

The Aspar Team was initially set up by four-time World Champion Jorge Martínez to support his own racing efforts, however since his retirement in 1997 the team has gone on to even greater things in the lower cylinder categories. Winning races and challenging for the championship has become part of the team’s fabric. They continued that theme over the last two years, by finishing with the top rider in the CRT classification, and they now embark on a new chapter in their history with Nicky Hayden and Hiroshi Aoyama riding the Honda RCV1000R.
