Jorge Navarro enjoyed a successful stint in the Grand Prix paddock, contesting both the Moto2 and Moto3 championships.
After wildcard appearances in 2012 and 2013, the Spanish rider completed half a season of Moto3 in 2014 and was instantly challenging for regular points-scoring finishes. In his first full year, Navarro established himself as a front-runner in the championship, taking pole position at Silverstone, before ending the season with four podiums in the final five races.
Having finished seventh in the standings, Navarro was amongst the championship protagonists in 2016, scoring three more podiums in the opening five rounds, before his breakthrough victory came at the Catalan GP. Another win came at Aragón, but misfortune and several DNFs saw him finish third in the final standings.
This was enough to see him step up to the Moto2 championship in 2017 though, and in his first two seasons he managed several top-six results. In 2019, he showed impressive pace with four pole positions and eight podiums, as he finished fourth in the final standings.
He added to his podium tally in both 2021 and 2022, before the Ten Kate Yamaha WorldSSP Supported Team announced he would be racing for them in the FIM Supersport World Championship for 2023. Having won the previous two titles, Navarro, as well as teammate Manzi, will both be looking to make it three in a row for the Dutch-based squad.
