Jake Dixon will set his sights on the 2024 Moto2 World Championship title under the revised CFMOTO Aspar Racing banner this season after his team agreed a new title sponsorship deal with the Chinese motorcycle giant.
The Spanish team, a stalwart of GP racing with success across each class, currently competes across MotoE, Moto3 and Moto2, while it has formerly also competed in MotoGP.
For 2024, the team will drop erstwhile branding from GasGas in favour of linking up with CFMOTO, one of the largest Chinese motorcycle manufacturers and one of the most prominent brands from the Far East making headway in the European market right now.
CFMOTO has enjoyed a scant presence in GP racing so far as title backer to PrestelGP in Moto3 for the past two seasons, but its decision to join forces with Aspar will see its branding feature heavily on both its Moto3 and Moto2 efforts.
It means Jake Dixon and Izan Guevara will race under the new CFMOTO Aspar Racing banner for 2024, while David Alonso and Joel Esteban will do the same in Moto3.
"In 2024 we want to fight for the title in Moto3 and Moto2, and doing so with CFMOTO is an added incentive,” said Aspar team boss Jorge Martinez ‘Aspar’.
“We are very happy to be able to count on their support and we will fight to make them feel proud and to offer them many wins this season."
Though the dropping of GasGas would appear to move Aspar adrift from its alliance with the Pierer Group, which also includes KTM and Husqvarna, it is worth noting that CFMoto actually holds a small stake in the Pierer Group entirely.
“The collaboration with Aspar definitely helps CFMOTO Racing step into another level, we believe more victories and podiums are coming with this legendary team,” commented Su Zhen, CFMOTO Racing Development Manager. “The 2024 season is just a start, with Aspar Team we will seek more opportunities of cooperation beyond the paddock.”
