Axel Pons

Axel Pons debuted in 2008 with wildcard rides at Jerez, Estoril and Barcelona in the 125cc category. Bad luck plagued his GP races as he crashed out of two of them, and technical problems saw him finish out of the points in the other.

In June 0f 2008, Pons suffered a horrific crash in a CEV race in Jerez which resulted in several fractured bones - including two broken legs, followed by several weeks of intense hospital treatment. He returned to competitive riding before the end of the 2008 season.

In 2009 he made the move to the 250cc World Championship. It proved to be a difficult season; failing to finish his first four races, he would take only three points and another four DNFs before finishing 26th in the final standings.

A ride in his father Sito’s Pons Kalex team in 2010 gave him the platform to showcase his talent in the new Moto2 class, with Sergio Gadea as his team-mate. With a best finish of 14th, Axel struggled to finish out in the top 35 for the year. He will ride again for his father's team in 2011 with a new teammate, Aleix Espargaro.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Axel Pons rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
