The Official Marc Marquez Fan Club has opened its new headquarters, in the double MotoGP champion's hometown of Cervera, Spain.

The club was launched in 2010, the year Marquez won his first title in the 125cc class, and was initially based in a hotel restaurant 200 metres from his house. By the end of the first year the club had 300 members and has now grown to over 1,700.

"I want to thank all who have made this possible," said Marquez. "It's fantastic that you can visit this exhibition with all these souvenirs of mine, and that the fans can see them, and that we have this new headquarters. The truth is that I was surprised, it's impressive and it's really beautiful."
