Jake Dixon will remain with the GasGas Aspar team in the Moto2 World Championship for the 2024 season.

The announcement of Dixon’s re-signing with GasGas Aspar confirms he will not move up to the MotoGP class next season, as had been rumoured to be a possibility since he won his first Grand Prix in Assen before the summer break. That means Britain’s wait for a first full-time premier class rider since Cal Cruthlow’s retirement from full-time racing at the end of 2020 will continue for at least one more season.

It also means Dixon will remain with the Spanish squad for a third straight season as he looks to build on his milestone 2023 campaign with a legitimate World Championship challenge in 2024.

Jake Dixon: “We’ve had almost two incredible seasons together so far so I’m really excited to stay with GasGas Aspar Team for another year. We both have goals, for the remainder of 2023 but then also full-on for ’24. We’ve regularly been in the running for podiums and wins and we’re 3rd in the championship at the moment, so I feel like I am in a strong place and the right place.”

Dixon’s teammate next season will again be 2022 Moto3 World Champion Izan Guevara, who has not adapted to the Moto2 class as well as many expected. Guevara scored his first points of his debut Moto2 season at the most recent round of the championship at the Austrian Grand Prix in Spielberg’s Red Bull Ring with a 13th place.

Izan Guevara: “I’m really grateful for the trust GASGAS Aspar Team have placed in me for the last few years. Together we have achieved pretty much everything we were aiming for: Moto3 world championship racing in 2020, the title in 2022 and, now, fighting for what we can in Moto2 and with another goal for 2024. My adaptation to the class is going positively and we took our first points in Austria. Step-by-step we are building a base so we will again arrive to the highest level together.”

Jorge Martinez: “Again, we have a great team for 2024. We’re happy that we can count on Jake Dixon once more for the GASGAS Aspar Team next season and we’re conscious that we still haven’t reached the limits of our potential together. We’ve taken Jake’s first win, and the working relationship is really good; we know what he needs and how we can help him. The rider has 100% trust in his team and his group, and I know we’ll fight for the world championship next year. 

“With Jake and with Izan, who is progressing nicely in Moto2 and had his first points in Austria, we’ll chase everything we can in 2024. We are starting to see sparks in Izan that we know well, and we saw to such powerful effect in FIM JuniorGP and in Moto3, and we’ll see his possibilities very soon.”

The 2023 Moto2 World Championship continues with the rest of the Grand Prix field at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on 1-3 September for the Catalan Grand Prix.
