The successful partnership has resulted in nine world titles so far – the most recent occurred in September of this year. Jorge Prado captured GASGAS’ first motocross world championship via fourteen holeshots, eleven pole positions, fourteen moto victories and sixteen Grand Prix podiums. Prado and De Carli Racing will unite beneath the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing tent to defend that crown when the new season begins on March 10.

Pit Beirer (Motorsports Director): “De Carli Racing has proven to be an incredibly professional and capable team that is integral to our organisation. We have been fortunate to share a lot of success and now, with the future set in stone, I look forward to even more joy. Davide De Carli’s proven himself to be a superb team manager since he first stepped into that role and the rider line-up for 2024 is packed full of potential.”

Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager): “I’m happy to continue our successful relationship with GASGAS. The hundreds of employees in the factory in Austria put so much trust in us to deliver results and we are keen to continue our run of success as Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing. There is no doubt that the future looks very bright – it will be time to get on the gas soon enough.”

Lotte van Drunen wins in Sardinia, points for van de Poel, Kooiker and Paturel

Lotte van Drunen of the De Baets MX team has won the second round of the Women’s World Championship in Riola Sardo, Sardinia and has become the new leader in the championship.

Lotte showed in both free practice and time practice that she was the fastest and took pole position with a difference of more than two seconds on the second lady.

On Saturday afternoon, the temperatures had already skyrocketed when the starting gate dropped for the first moto. The moto started with a setback for Lotte as she encountered a fallen rider in the first corner, forcing her to start the race at the back. During the first two laps, she managed to make up many places and by continuing to set fast lap times, she got closer and closer to the leading group. With two laps to go, she stepped it up a notch and despite getting into the back markers , she managed to close the gap to the leader. With two corners to go, she went on the attack and managed to take over the lead. Lotte won the moto and scored maximum in the first moto.

On Sunday morning, the starting gate dropped for the second moto. Lotte got a good start and managed to take over third place in the second corner. She quickly moved up to second place and shortly afterwards took the lead in the race. Controlled and almost flawless, she went around the track and managed to win the moto with a safe lead.

With a 1-1 in the heats, Lotte won the day’s classification and takes the lead in the standings of the world championships.

Dex Kooiker and Tyla van de Poel were riding the first EMX125 race in Sardinia. Due to the large turnout, training was done in two groups. Tyla qualified twelfth in his group and Dex finished seventeenth.

In the first moto Tyla managed to get a very good start and started the race around tenth place. With a good rhythm he worked his way up to fifth place but then unfortunately crashed and was knocked back to thirtieth place. He fought his way back to twentieth place but collided with another rider in the heat of the battle and eventually finished twenty-fourth. Dex also got off to a good start and crossed the finish line in sixteenth place. With this, he picked up his first points.

In the second moto it was again Tyla who got a very good start and came out of the first corner in fourth place. Unfortunately, due to a mistake on the first lap, he was knocked back to thirteenth place. Due to the heat and the tough first moto on Saturday, Tyla noticed that he was quickly running out of strength and therefore decided to ride a constant pace. He lost several places but still managed to take two points with a nineteenth place. Dex was also in a good position at the start, but in the second corner, a rider crashed right in front of him, causing him to come to a stop. This was not all, because in the second lap another rider jumped into him and due to this he crashed. Because it took him a long time to get his engine running again, scoring points was out of the question, so he calmly finished the race.

Benoit Paturel managed to score a World Championship point with a twentieth place in the first moto of the MXGP class. In the second moto he had to deal with a problem that prevented him from scoring.

This weekend, the world championship continues in Arco di Trento, Italy.

Pauls Jonass of Standing Construct Honda MXGP has ridden a strong third round of the MXGP World Championship in Sardinia. In the hot and humid conditions, Jonass managed to finish fifth and fourth in the motos and this earned him a fourth place in the day’s classification.

On Saturday, the pace was high in the time practice. Jonass did several attempts to put a fast lap together and ended up in ninth place. The differences with the riders in front of him were small, so he knew that if he got a good start, he had to be able to get more in the qualifying heat. Jonass was well in front at the start of the qualifying heat and came out of the first lap in sixth place. He soon managed to work his way up to fifth place and held on to this position till the checkered flag fell.

With fifth place in the qualifying heat, Jonass had an ideal starting spot in both motos on Sunday. In the first moto he got a very good start and was in third place in the first few laps. Then he fell back to fourth place and he also managed to hold on to this position for a long time. In the final stages he had to give up one place and crossed the finish line in fifth place.

In the second moto, Jonass came out of the first lap in sixth place and immediately had a good rhythm in his hands. In the early stages he moved up to fifth place and in the middle of the race he also managed to take over fourth place. Here he managed to hold on well for the rest of the moto and crossed the finish line in fourth place.

With a 5-4 in the motos, Jonass finished in fourth place in the day’s standings. In the world championship standings, he occupies fifth place and is 12 points behind the third man in the standings. This weekend the championship continues in Arco di Trento, Italy.
