Moto2 USA | Jake Dixon ‘taking it race by race’, good memories of COTA

Jake Dixon insists he is not looking too closely at the 2023 Moto2 World Championship standings following a positive start to the season, as the Briton turns his focus to round three of the season at Circuit of The Americas.

In what has been a busy few weeks for the GasGas Aspar rider, in addition to Dixon scoring a podium last time out in Argentina, he also became a new Dad following the birth of his daughter a few hours before the race.

Having spent the two weeks between events to settle into his new paternal roles, Dixon’s attention is now trainers on continuing his strong streak of form in the United States.


It marks a poignant return to the Texan venue for the Kent rider after scoring his long-awaited first Moto2 podium at COTA last year with his run to third. He has since gone on to make six further trips to the rostrum, even if the top step remains elusive.

A year on, Dixon will be considered a contender for a maiden victory that would boost his burgeoning title aspirations - not that he is thinking about that just yet.

“I want to take it race by race; it is a long season. We don't have set any expectations. After spending some time with my family and resetting my mind, we come back stronger for this Grand Prix.” 

On the other side of the GasGas Aspar Team garage, Dixon will be joined for the first time in 2023 by new team-mate Ian Guevara.

The 2022 Moto3 World Champion was forced to miss the opening two events after picking up a wrist injury in the run-up to the start of the season.

After being replaced by Jordi Torres in Portugal and Argentina, Guevara will make his belated Moto2 debut in the United States instead.

“I'm finally coming back. With the injury it was very uncomfortable for me to ride and in the end, it was necessary to undergo surgery," the Spaniard remarked.

"I arrive in Austin with enthusiasm after two these races in which I couldn’t take part, but the recovery has gone well and we have been able to return as soon as possible. We are not 100% ready for our debut in Moto2, but we will try to improve our sensations every day.” 

Dixon sits fourth in the Moto2 standings following his third place in Argentina and sixth at the Portimao opener.
