Today at the Valencia GP, GASGAS and the Aspar Team present its sporting project for 2022, unveiling its new colours – they will race with them on Sunday’s race. After a fruitful season in Moto3™, both parts will extend their alliance to Moto2™ World Championship, in which they will race as GASGAS Aspar Team too. In Moto3™, Sergio Garcia and Izan Guevara will keep defending the team’s colours while in Moto2™ it will be Albert Arenas and Jake Dixon, who come back to the team.
The first GASGAS Aspar Team season in Moto3™ was successful thanks to teamwork and good performances of Sergio Garcia and Izan Guevara. Overall, they scored four wins and six podiums, with Sergio being third in the overall standings and Izan eighth, as the second best rookie of the year.
In Moto2™, 2022 will be the first year for the GASGAS Aspar Team alliance, aiming high with Albert Arenas and Jake Dixon. 2020 Moto3™ World Champion, Albert Arenas, will face his second season in Moto2™, together with Jake Dixon, who already competed during three seasons, one of them with the Aspar Team.
In anticipation of the full line-up for 2022, the Moto2™ wing of the GASGAS Aspar Team will already take to the track at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit for the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana – the last MotoGP™ showdown in 2021 – in GASGAS colours!
Sergio Garcia: “Apart from the injury, I think we had a really good season and I’m really happy with how the year has gone. With our experience and our work in 2021 with the GASGAS Aspar Team, I’m sure we will be able to give everything again next year and fight for good results as well as the championship.”
Izan Guevara: “I’m really happy to have another year with the GASGAS Aspar Team. I feel really comfortable with the crew, we work really well and we managed to take a win in our first season. Next season we’ll keep on pushing for top results. We will be able to count on a year of learning in the world championship as well as the connection with GASGAS, so we’ll be able to start next season strong right from the beginning.”
Albert Arenas: “I’m really pumped about this project and to continue another year with the GASGAS Aspar Team, a winning squad and we were champions together. I’m looking forward to again achieving success with them. We will have a new bike and with the support of a brand like GASGAS, I’m really excited and motivated to try the new package. I want to have a strong pre-season and - with a year of experience in Moto2 - reach my full potential, fight for the best results and enjoy the races. I want to thank Jorge Martínez Aspar for this opportunity and GASGAS: I’m so happy to have another year in this set-up and structure.”
Jake Dixon: “It’s great to be back with Aspar and the GASGAS team for 2022. Returning to the team feels like coming home and to keep with familiar equipment is another plus. I’m already excited to know what we can do next season and I cannot thank the team enough for the opportunity. I hope we can do great things together.”
Jorge Aspar, Team Principal: “The GASGAS Aspar Team in the Moto2 and Moto3 classes as well as the FIM CEV series is a big challenge for us. We’re very happy to be an official team for this ambitious and hungry project created by GASGAS. We don’t have any other objective apart from continuing to develop and to fight for the world championship in whatever division we’re competing.”
Pit Beirer, GASGAS Motorsports Director: “2021 has been a very strong season for the GASGAS brand and it’s what we hoped and expected from such a strong team like the Aspar boys. We have full trust that they can push for a first Moto3 title next year but being able to increase GASGAS presence to Moto2 with them was a clear-cut decision for us. We know Albert will be more familiar with Moto2 for 2022 and Jake is a rider that is on the edge of producing something special in the class. We hope to see much more ‘red’ on both podiums.”
