Dennis Foggia (Leopard Racing Honda NSF250RW) goes into the last Moto3 race of 2021 with his head held high and aiming to finish the season on a high.

Foggia Aims For Sixth Victory Of 2021 At Valencia

The 20-year-old Italian has had an amazing season, especially the second half, when he built a mighty challenge for the 2021 Moto3 World Championship with a run of three victories and three further podiums in six races. He went into last weekend’s Algarve Grand Prix still in the title fight, battling for victory on the last lap with title rival Pedro Acosta, until he was knocked down by Darryn Binder (Petronas Sprinta Racing Honda NSF250RW). His exit handed the title to Acosta.

Foggia has yet to finish on the podium at Valencia, but he will surely be in the battle for the podium on Sunday. Binder, who was disqualified from last Sunday’s race, will also be in the lead group, because he loves tight, twisting circuits like Circuit Ricardo Tormo.

Binder is currently Honda’s second rider in the championship, holding seventh place. Honda’s third rider in the top ten is Andrea Migno (Rivacold Snipers Team Honda NSF250RW), who achieved his third podium of the year in last Sunday’s chaotic race.

Yuki Kunii (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) will be working hard to claim his fifth points-scoring result of 2021 this weekend. The 18-year-old from Setagaya has scored points on four occasions so far, including his first top ten at August’s Styrian GP, where he finished an excellent eighth.

Team-mate Andi Farid Izdihar (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) had his best ride of last year at Valencia, when he was contesting the Moto2 World Championship, so he hopes that will translate into his best Moto3 result. So far this year the 23-year-old Indonesian has scored points at four races, always in 15th position.

We missed the title, so now we have to look forward to next year, to continuing the great feeling I have now with the NSF250RW and fighting for the title again. And this weekend, one more chance for one more win in 2021!

I am really motivated for this final race of the year at Valencia, which is my favourite track so I know I will enjoy the race and also I will try to keep my 100% maximum best for the race. After the last race in Portugal I feel some confidence riding the bike, so I will work hard to make that even better, always working well with the team.

Finally this is the last race of the year at Valencia, so we will try to make it a very good one. Last weekend at Portimao wasn’t easy, but I already know Valencia quite well and last year I scored my best Moto2 result at the track, so this year I will try even harder and aim to get my best Moto3 result there.
