Aki Ajo and Ajo Motorsport: Perfecting the art of making the impossible possible

The last eight years of Ajo Motorsport have produced remarkable results: six world championship titles and ten world championship medals.

Joan Olivé is a familiar face in the Red Bull KTM set-up. The former Grand Prix athlete and owner of nine podium finishes now helps the current factory riders and has transitioned from one side of the pit wall to the other.
