Spanish rider, Izan Guevara, secures the 2022 Moto3 Championship crown with two races left in the season.
With a victory at the Animoca Brands Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team rider, Izan Guevara, secures his place as the Moto3 World Champion for 2022.
Izan Guevara started the 2022 season as a contender for the Championship. He won his first Grand Prix in Jerez with an amazing victory. By Silverstone, he had racked up wins in Catalunya and Germany and was on his way to back-to-back glory in Aragon before Motegi.
He went into the Australian round with 49 point advantage. When it was said and done, Izan Guevara was at the top of the podium, his sixth win of the season.
“I’m really happy with my career so far. In 2019 I won the ETC, then Moto3 in JuniorGP with Aspar and I won my first year… then I moved to the Moto3 World Championship with the same team. Last year I was able to have a good season, I took a victory in Austin. A good rookie season. Then this year I pushed in every race to get my goal of being World Champion. And today I achieved it. I’m really happy. In the start of the race today it was really complicated with the slightly wet conditions, but the track dried quickly and I felt really comfortable. It was possible to push in the lead group with my pace, I’m so happy with this moment, this Championship… I’d like to thank my team, my family for the support, and all my friends.” – Izan Guevara.
His title marks the first time that a GASGAS rider has won the Moto3 title and also the first time the title has been won by a manufacturer other than Honda or KTM.
