Red Bull Rookies Champion Alonso set for Portimao wildcard

Last season’s Red Bull Rookies MotoGP™ Cup Champion David Alonso will make only his second Grand Prix appearance this weekend at the Grande Prémio Tissot de Portugal, forming part of a three-man strong Valresa GasGas Aspar Team. The talented 15-year-old, who turns 16 the day after Sunday’s Portuguese Grand Prix, is back on the grid following his debut at the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. Instead, he will contest the JuniorGP World Championship this year, with this weekend acting as the perfect warm-up to their opening round in Estoril in just over two weeks’ time. The good thing is that it’s not the first time, last year I already did it in Misano, so I know what a race weekend is like.
