McPhee gets Moto2 shot as Dixon is confirmed for MotoGP Aragon

Scotland's John McPhee will get a shot at the Moto2 class when he stands in for Petronas team-mate Jake Dixon at the Aragon MotoGP round.

Dixon was confirmed alongside Valentino Rossi at the Spanish round this morning, with team boss Razlan Razali promoting McPhee to the middleweight division.

"It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to try the Moto2 bike in Aragon. As with every rider, it’s their dream to progress through the categories, and I feel like I am at the level, and have the ability to make this step up to Moto2," said McPhee.


"Of course, the challenge will be extremely difficult because it’s my first time ever racing a big bike, with my only real experience being 15 laps of Barcelona in 2019 which was a ‘thank you’ from the team after my win at Le Mans.

I’m really excited and motivated for the challenge and really looking forward to trying the bike. There’s no real expectation, I’m just going to enjoy it a lot and feel like if I can improve session by session and keep closing the gap with the fastest riders, then this will be a job well done. Thank you to my team for this opportunity."
