Pol Espargaro returns with KTM in Austria

After competing in the Italian Grand Prix, on the Mugello circuit, Pol Espargaro will soon be back. The KTM test rider will once again fill the Wildcard role for the brand at the upcoming Austrian Grand Prix, August 16-18.

An important event for the team and its title sponsor who will play at home. This will be the 11th stop of the 2024 tour of MotoGP.

Having entered the KTM MotoGP testing program at the start of the current campaign, his performance at Mugello demonstrated that he has lost none of his pace. In Italy, the 33-year-old driver finished in 14th place in the Sprint, while he narrowly missed the points by finishing the main race 17th.

“I’m ready to go again!” Mugello was a special circuit to make my return to Red Bull KTM, confides Pol Espargaro. VSHowever, the Red Bull Ring is even more so. For the circuit, the place, the fans and the atmosphere. And above all for what this Grand Prix means for KTM. It's also a bit like a home race for me. »

The Spaniard had some pretty happy times at Spielberg, as he reached the podium in the 2020 edition of the event. The race which will take place next month will mark its ninth Grand Prix on the track.

I have good memories there, He continues. I remember fighting for victory in Austria. As in Italy, the objective will be to rediscover my sensations on the track with the KTM RC16. But also to continue our testing program. We will have work to do. But I know the Austrian GP will also be a lot of fun. »
