The GASGAS Aspar Junior team win the coveted ‘feeder’ championship to Grand Prix racing after Daniel Holgado ran to a safe 9th position in the first outing at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia last weekend.
Holgado locks the 2021 FIM Moto3 Junior world title in Valencia
The 16-year-old makes the grade after 5 wins and 8 podiums from 12 races
Success story for GASGAS with the Aspar team and Moto3 machinery this season
Riding the RC 250 GP machine taken to victory in Moto3 Grand Prix in 2021, Holgado showed he’s the next hotshot on the block by grabbing the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship ‘bull’ by the horns. The teenager fronted the pack with four wins in the first five rounds to stake his claim to the crown. The Spaniard added another three trophies in the competition that circled Grand Prix venues on the Iberian Peninsula like the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto and MotorLand Aragon.
The contest (along with the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup) has ritually been the brightest proving ground for youngsters aiming for the heights of MotoGP™. 2020 champion, Izan Guevara, made the step to the GASGAS Aspar Grand Prix squad and clinched a race win in his first season in 2021. Holgado kept the Aspar streak running on Saturday in Valencia when main title rival David Muñoz was forced to start from pitlane and failed to score any points. In the second race on Sunday Holgado swept to his fifth chequered flag, stamping his authority one more time.
Along with the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship, GASGAS also aced four Moto3 Grands Prix (France, Catalunya, Austria and the USA) and totalled seven podium appearances this year.
Daniel Holgado: “I want to thank everyone who came to see me today, I owe all this to them because I really felt that support and it helped push me through those final few laps. I also want to thank all of my incredible team; I’ll really miss them next year and hope we can find each other again in the future. I’d like to congratulate David Muñoz and Iván Ortolá because they made a great season and were really strong rivals. It’s thanks to them that I was able to improve as a rider and also as a person by working hard day after day.”
More red! More Gas! The GASGAS Aspar Team will carry the brand into both 2022 Moto3 and Moto2 with four exciting racers all pushing for silverware next season.

Sergio Garcia romped to a blistering second place podium finish after a thrilling 22 lap race at the 2021 Motul TT of Assen
The legendary Dutch circuit of Assen provided the perfect venue for Sergio Garcia and the Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team to showcase just why they are fighting for the top spots in the Moto3™ World Championship. Second place, and a haul of 20 points - cementing 2nd in the riders standings - went Garcia’s way after a breathless 22 laps.
Sergio Garcia races to his 3rd podium of the season, finishing 2nd at the 2021 Motul TT of Assen
Izan Guevara qualifies 13th and finishes 12th
Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team places second in the team championship standings after nine rounds of the 2021 Moto3 World Championship
There is almost no better feeling on a Grand Prix bike than going flat out on a bright and sunny day around one of the fastest, and the oldest venues of the MotoGP calendar. The legendary and sweeping Dutch TT circuit, known to fans as the Cathedral of Speed is a firm favourite for many riders, and the perfect venue to score points and experience some awesome racing. Sergio Garcia knows this - and showed fans exactly why he is destined for big things in the future - by racing to his third podium of the season so far.
The 18 year old Spanish young gun lined up in 4th position aboard his GASGAS RC 250 GP machine, and made short work of his rivals during the opening laps of the Dutch race. In what proved to be one of the overall fastest Grand Prix of the year so far - where lap records tumbled on multiple occasions - Garcia set the white hot pace amongst the leaders.
Despite the speed of eventual winner Dennis Foggia, Garcia frequently nosed into first place throughout the race, and used his incredible late-braking skill to close down any gaps that his rival had pulled on the straights
In the closing laps, Garcia kept the gap to less than two-tenths of a second. In fact, as Garcia rocketed through the final turns on the last lap, the 18 year old very nearly snatched the win from Foggia. He crossed the line just 0.078 behind the Italian.
Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team rider Izan Guevara recorded a solid top 12 finish, after a challenging race. The former Junior Moto3 World Champion, who turns 17 years old on the Monday after the Dutch Grand Prix, worked hard to find a consistent rhythm. Qualifying on 13th place on the grid, Guevara battled hard in the mid pack, and despite slipping outside the top fifteen on lap six, fought back into the points by the second half of the sprint.
The Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team and the Moto3 paddock now enjoy a much deserved month-long summer break, after which they head for Austria, and the Michelin Grand Prix of Styria on the 8th August.
#11 - Sergio Garcia: “I really enjoyed this race a lot today. I think this was potentially the fastest race we have had in the Moto3 World Championship all year so far. I was pushing as hard as I could, right until the finish. I was leading at times during the race, but the positions were changing so much between me and the other riders in the leading group. I had a small moment on lap 17 or 18 when I dropped back to 5th, but then I fought back. To fight for the podium in such a fast race is an amazing feeling.”
#28 - Izan Guevara: “It was not quite the race we hoped for, but we took some points today. We were looking quite good during the weekend but there was a crash in Turn 5 quite early on in the race and that meant it was tough afterwards to catch the group in front. We had good rhythm but could only make a few tenths back. Anyway, I’m happy and we’ll keep working like this to push onwards.”
Jorge Martinez (Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team Manager): “It was a fast and surprising race where the front group eventually broke away. Sergio laid on a spectacular performance and, in my opinion, is the finest rider in the class at the moment. He rode very well considering the straight line speed of Foggia’s bike, so I just want to congratulate him for a very impressive job all weekend.”

Adding another astonishing chapter to her remarkable career, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Laia Sanz has today successfully completed her 11th consecutive Dakar Rally. Saving her best until last by claiming 17th on the final stage, Laia not only brought the super-challenging event to an emotional and positive close but again underlined her position as a true Dakar legend.

17th overall she again finishes as the highest placed female competitor

Laia Sanz: “I’m just super happy to finish. It wasn’t that long ago that we didn’t know if we would even be here, so to ride up onto the podium at the finish, yeah, it’s just incredible. With what has been happening in the world this year it makes this one a little more special. My approach to the rally worked for me, riding a safe and manageable pace and I just wanted to reach the finish. I felt really good after the rest day so I could push a little more and ended the rally strong. My team has been amazing. Supporting me the whole time and my bike was perfect all race. So, thanks to them I’m so happy to complete another Dakar!”
The 2021 Dakar Rally came to a close today with a relatively short 200-kilometer special. Setting off from Yanbu and leading to the finish line in Jeddah, it was far from an easy stage. Loaded with technical obstacles from the start, it provided one last demanding test for all competitors.
Finishing this year’s Dakar proved to be challenging for all riders, very much including Laia. With the goal of simply completing this year’s rally, having had very little time to properly prepare for the event after contracting Lyme Disease last summer, the Spanish ace did exactly what she set out to achieve. Opting for a steady pace through the opening week, Laia reached the mid-race rest day without any major mistakes.
After a much-needed day of recovery and relative relaxation, Laia felt much more confident in her physical ability to complete the event. Picking up her pace as the end of the rally drew nearer, the ‘Queen of the Desert’ went on to deliver her very best stage result on the final day of racing, earning a 17th place finish. Following a highly positive end to her Dakar, Sanz moved up to 17th in the final standings.
Jordi Viladoms – GASGAS Rally Team Manager: “It’s just amazing for Laia to complete another Dakar Rally. Coming back from her illness last year, we really didn’t know what to expect and the plan was to take it day by day. Completing the rally, her finishing record is now 11 in a row, a truly remarkable achievement. This year was an especially tough Dakar, one of the toughest for quite some time but every day she fought hard. I’m really proud of her for what she has achieved.”
