Jake Dixon has begun his preparations in earnest for the 2024 Moto2 World Championship as he bids to become the first British rider to achieve Grand Prix World Championship title success since 2015.
The Kent rider will begin his sixth season in the intermediate category this season, once more with the Spanish Aspar Team, as one of the series’ highest-placed returnees following a breakthrough 2023 Moto2 campaign that took him to fourth in the overall standings.
Representing a big step forward for Dixon, his season piqued with his peerless maiden victory at Assen - his first in 72 Moto2 starts - before then supplementing it with another hard-fought win at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Combined with a total of five podiums - not to mention 12 finishes inside the top six too - Dixon would end his season in a personal best fourth overall.
It means he joins Tony Arbolino and Fermin Aldeguer - the silver and bronze medal winners from 2023 - in being identified as one of the keenest favourites for the 2024 Moto2 title. Speaking in a short video posted to Aspar’s social media accounts, Dixon says he heads into the new season looking to multiply his victory tally.
“For 2024 my goals are to keep improving as myself, keep getting better each year. It was great in 2023 getting two wins, but that’s not enough, the work doesn’t stop there.
“There are several things I want to achieve and I am working hard towards those goals.”
Having raced with branding from Pierer Mobility (KTM) sister brand GasGas in 2022 and 2023, Dixon’s Aspar Team is rumoured to be getting backing from one of China’s largest motorcycle manufacturers, CFMoto, instead for 2024.
