Ana Carrasco looks set for a return to grand prix racing after reportedly joining Moto3 team Boe SKX.  

Carrasco became the first woman ever to win an FIM World Championship series when she claimed the 2018 WorldSSP300 title. 

The Spanish rider has been a race winner in all five of the Supersport300 campaigns she’s competed in, whilst also claiming a total of seven race wins over that time. 

Despite winning the title in 2018, Carrasco’s best season from a results standpoint came the following year as she claimed a total of five podiums including two wins - had just two victories in her title winning season. 

If Carrasco does indeed make the switch to Moto3, then it will see her return to the lower category of GP racing where she spent three seasons. 

Carrasco claimed two points finishes in 46 Moto3 races which includes a best of eighth in Valencia (2013). 

Out of a WorldSP300 deal, Carrasco was initially targeting a step-up to WorldSSP before signing with the Boe SKX KTM team. Carrasco is expected to replace David Salvador with rookie David Munoz as her full-time team-mate. 

Carrasco’s move to KTM comes after five years aboard Kawasaki machinery, however, it won’t be her first time with the Austrian manufacturer, in fact, all three of her Moto3 seasons were spent with KTM.  

Carrasco is currently in Jerez testing alongside WorldSBK riders Jonathan Rea, Alex Lowes, Lucas Mahias, Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge, while WorldSSP riders Can Oncu, Niki Tuuli, Yari Montella, Jeffrey Buis, Ben Currie and former five-time Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu are also in attendance for the two-day test which concludes today.
