Jorge Martín’s passion for motorcycling was handed down from his father, who bought a young Jorge a pocket bike. Setting off with an ambition of beating his idol Valentino Rossi’s records, the young Jorge began to race and soon showed more than a spark of talent.

In 2012, Jorge came within touching distance of the World Championship when he was accepted to compete in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. Injury affected his campaign, but when fully fit in 2013, Jorge showed he was one of the top riders to watch as he finished runner-up behind Karel Hanika.
