Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Junior Team’s Senna Agius sealed the 2023 European Moto2 Championship in style with two race wins at the penultimate round of the season at Aragon.

Agius signalled his intentions by qualifying on pole position by four-tenths of a second, and delivered a commanding performance in race one to take a 16.893s victory.

Needing a podium finish in the second race to wrap up the title, Agius won the championship in the best possible way with another victory at MotorLand, his seventh so far in 2023.

“I am overjoyed and also a bit proud of this success,” said Agius. “Winning the second race after the first was the perfect way to end the weekend. And on top of that, I am happy about winning the title.

“In the first race everything went according to plan. I was able to find my rhythm immediately and pulled away. I was able to implement my pace from the previous days and then had everything under control. The second race, on the other hand, was anything but easy. Alberto [Surra] was very strong in some part of the track. I tried to overtake him but was a bit on the limit each time. It took a few tries before I was finally able to pass him.

“I want to thank the whole Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP team for everything. They have given me a perfect package all season. The whole structure this year has enabled me to achieve these successes. So, my thanks also go to my coaches, my family and everyone else who was involved.”

Agius has also had the opportunity to fill-in at the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP team this year at select Moto2 World Championship races, and will step up to the world championship with the team in 2024.
