With Miguel Oliveira’s third place in the Moto2 Aragon race, Ajo Motorsport secured its 150th rostrum in all classes in Grand Prix racing which the team has celebrated ahead of the final four races in 2017.

The Aki Ajo team first broke on to the GP racing scene in 2001 with a wildcard rider for Mika Kallio and it took just two years for the team to reach to the rostrum for the first time with a historic double podium at the 2003 Australian GP with Andrea Ballerini and Masao Azuma taking a 1-2.

Since then Ajo Motorsport has competed in the 125cc/Moto3 and Moto2 classes and reached the rostrum in every championship, taking 65 wins in its 150 podium appearances.

2015 is marked as Ajo Motorsport’s most successful with 27 podiums while Tech 3 Yamaha’s Johann Zarco has been the biggest contributor during his junior career with 35 podiums in his three seasons with the team.

In total the team has won six riders’ world championships and been overall runners-up three times. 2016 became the team’s greatest overall campaign by winning both the Moto2 and Moto3 world championships with Johann Zarco and Brad Binder respectively.

Under the Red Bull KTM Ajo name in this year’s Moto3 and Moto2 the team has a total of 76 podiums, with 33 being race wins.
