Like father, like son

Until 2021, in the 73 seasons of Grand Prix motorcycle racing, there was only one father and son duo that had won World Championships: Kenny Roberts and Kenny Roberts Jr. In 2000, Kenny Roberts Jr won the 500cc title with Suzuki, handing the Hamamatsu factory their first Kevin Schwantz in 1993. Wayne’s son, Remy, got his first taste of full-time World Championship action in 2015 in Moto3™, but he would have to wait until the 2019 Argentinian GP for his first podium. Only a select few can say they’ve become a World Champion, but having a father and son to both do it is even rarer. Who will be next to join the Roberts’ and Gardner’s?.
