Australia’s Senna Agius has outlined his firm ambitions to fight for next year’s European Moto2 title, joining the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team for the 2023 season.

Agius, 17, experienced a breakout 2022 campaign – his first on a Moto2 bike – and finished second in the European Championship, with two race wins and nine podium finishes to his credit.

He was also given the opportunity to wildcard in the Moto2 World Championship on four occasions, filling in for the injured Sam Lowes at the Elf Marc VDS Racing Team and scoring a best result of P9 in Valencia.

With the minimum age of 18 required to compete in the Moto2 World Championship from 2023, Agius was not able to make the step to series full-time for next year, however, his move for 2023 sees him join this year’s European Championship winning outfit that also has a team in the world championship – the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Team.

“I am very happy about signing with Intact GP for next year,” said Agius. “It will be my second season in the European Moto2 Championship, where I seriously want to fight for the title. This is the logical goal because the team has a lot of experience, so I can learn a lot from them. I think we can do a good job and I am looking forward to starting the new season together.”

In the European off-season, Agius returned home to debut on a superbike in the final two rounds of the 2022 Mi-Bike Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK), impressing at The Bend to close the season with a P2 finish with Penrite Honda Racing in race two.
