We got a small taste of what 2024 will look like for Red Bull KTM Tech3 on Monday in Valencia as the lightweight class participated in the Valencia Moto3™ Official Test. Daniel Holgado tried the 2024 KTM bike as he will stay with the team for a second season, and he was joined by new recrue Jacob Roulstone, from Australia, who made his debuts in the Moto3™ class with his new team. The lightweight class had three different sessions to get on with their testing plan, as they shared the track with the Moto2™ class.
The 2023 Moto3™ World Championship came to an end on Sunday at the Gran Premio de la Comunitat de Valenciana, with Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Daniel Holgado and Filippo Farioli both in the points, respectively claiming eighth and twelfth of the Valencia GP.
No more qualifying left for the Moto3™ class as the lightweight boys disputed their final 2023 shootout for the pole position on Saturday at the Gran Premio de la Comunitat de Valenciana. Fastest man on Friday, home boy Daniel Holgado confirmed his status as one of the favourites of the weekend as he completed the combined standing in third overall. Filippo Farioli also qualified directly for the final qualifying stage as he took sixth on Saturday morning. However, things didn't go as we would have wanted after both Filippo Farioli and Daniel Holgado crashed in the final qualifying session. The young italian rookie will start his final race with Red Bull KTM Tech3 from P14, while Dani will line up in eighteenth after he was not able to rejoin the session today.
