The 2014 Red Bull Rookies Champion has ‘reconnected’ with KTM to continue his progression in Grand Prix racing. KTM, Aki Ajo – and his vastly experienced and competitive crew – singled out Martin as one of the brightest replacements for Miguel Oliveira in the Moto2 project as the Portuguese moves to MotoGP in 2019.
 
Jorge Martin: “I think this is an important move for my career and I’m really happy to have found this agreement with KTM and Red Bull. It is such a competitive brand and I already cannot wait to start working this winter to attack next season. I want to learn as much as I can in the first year and fight to be at the top in the second. Obviously I have good memories of KTM from the Red Bull Rookies Cup. It is important to be together again and I hope we can get the same sort of results we managed last time!”
 
Aki Ajo (Team Manager Moto2): “We can see that many riders can be quick when they move from Moto3 to Moto2. We have a lot of experience with this and there are many examples; so I get very excited when we have a top guy from Moto3 coming again into our Moto2 structure. I feel that Jorge is one of the biggest talents coming up and especially in Moto3. I’m really enthusiastic to welcome him into the KTM family.”
 
Pit Beirer (KTM Motorsports Director): “We are proud and happy to get this rider ‘back’! He was growing up in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and I think our philosophy is now clear to everybody. Having Jorge in Moto2 is another milestone for us because he really is one of the upcoming talents in this paddock; it underlines the effort we are making. Together with Aki we are trying to have this combination of experience and adding one of the youngsters in Moto2. I think it is important that we have opened a cool line to show how a rider can make steps with us through the categories. I’m really happy to have Jorge on our side; he is too strong to be one of our competitors out there!”
