Julian Simon

Julian Simon began road racing at age 12. Winner of the 50cc and 125cc Aprilia Cups in 2000, he continued his career in the Spanish Championship before making his GP debut in 2003.

His first season proved mediocre, but a steady 2004 saw him close the season in 14th place overall. This earned Simon a highly-coveted ride with the Red Bull KTM team. He achieved a final 125 World Championship position of seventh in 2005.

Having finished ninth in 2006, Simón moved up to the 250 class to ride for the Repsol Honda team in 2007. Simon finished in the top ten, but after a second season in the quarter-litre category without a podium appearance (on KTM machinery in 2008), the Spaniard opted to drop back into the 125cc ranks for the 2009 season to join the Bancaja Aspar team.

Simón clinched the 125cc World Championship title with his fifth victory - and tenth podium - of the year at Phillip Island with two rounds to spare, and in 2010 started a new challenge in Moto2 with the Mapfre Aspar Team which proved to be a banner year for him. Riding among one of the largest fields in motorcycle racing history, over 40 riders, Julian finished on the podium more times than not. Securing himself a 2nd place finish for the season, Mapfre Aspar was wise to resign him for a second year in 2011. With the only man standing in his way for 2010, Toni Elias, moving back up to MotoGP for 2011, things are looking good for a Championship win.

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 Julian Simon rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
