“We’re looking forward to seeing what Pedro Acosta can achieve on home ground.”

Rookie sensation Pedro Acosta is set to make his highly anticipated MotoGP debut in front of his enthusiastic Spanish supporters at Jerez this weekend.

At just 19 years old, Acosta has already etched his name in the record books as the youngest rider ever to claim back-to-back podium finishes in the premier class. As he heads into round four, he holds the distinction of being the top-ranked KTM rider in the championship.

With the RC16 already proving its competitiveness last year at Jerez, where Brad Binder, Jack Miller, and Dani Pedrosa battled for pole positions and race victories, expectations are soaring for Acosta’s performance. Notably, Acosta secured a runner-up finish in the Moto2 class during the same weekend.

Reflecting on his upcoming home race, Acosta expressed his excitement, saying, “The first race at home comes at a very good time. We have just made two podiums in a row, and I am looking forward to racing in Jerez.” Despite the pressure, Acosta emphasized his eagerness to compete in front of what he considers the best fans in the world.


Acosta remains focused on enjoying himself on the track and maintaining his consistent performance. With Jerez being one of his favorite circuits and the RC16’s strong showing in previous years, Acosta is motivated to give his all from the first session onward.

As he gears up for the challenge ahead, Acosta’s determination and confidence set the stage for an exciting weekend of racing at Jerez.

“We’ll see how things unfold, and I look forward to seeing all of you there!”

Team manager Nicolas Goyon chimed in, saying, “Pierer Mobility will be watching closely, especially after the impressive performances from Brad Binder and Jack Miller last year. It’s evident that the RC16 performs well at Jerez.”

“On the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 side, Pedro Acosta has had a stellar start to the season, securing two podiums and a front-row start. It’s clear he’s adapting quickly to the premier class. With his podium finish in Moto2 last season, Jerez is a track he’s comfortable with, and we’re excited to see what he can achieve on home turf this week.”

Acosta has until the German Grand Prix in July to surpass Marc Marquez’s record as the youngest premier-class race winner.

Meanwhile, Acosta’s teammate, Augusto Fernandez, has expressed his intention to analyze Acosta’s setup and riding style to improve his own performance at a track he knows well.

“Augusto Fernandez has made some adjustments to his approach since Austin, and although the results haven’t come immediately, I’m confident things will improve for him, especially in Spain,” Goyon added.

The action kicks off with free practice on Friday morning.
