The Spaniard Joan Mir – born in Palma de Majorca on 1 September 1997 – is without doubt one of the most important and accredited young talents in motorcycle racing. He is gifted with great determination and crystalline talent, and he immediately established himself as “Rookie of the Year” when he first participated in the Moto3 World Championship in 2016 with the Leopard Racing Team. His best weekend that season was definitely the Austrian Grand Prix, where he secured first pole position and the first win of his career, convincing everyone of his extraordinary talent.
2017 is the year of the definitive consecration for the young Spaniard, crowned Moto3 World Champion after 10 wins and 3 more podium finishes in 18 races. The next challenge for the Majorcan ace is called Moto2, to be faced under the banner of the Marc VDS Racing team.
