Jerez Turn 6 named Dani Pedrosa 1MotoGP™ Legend’s name is given to Turn 6 at the Circuito de Jerez Angel-Nieto.

After a presentation on Friday evening at the Gran Premio Red Bull de España, Dani Pedrosa now has a corner named after him at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto: Turn 6. Pedrosa’s record at his home Grand Prix is impressive, making it a fitting host for the honour.

Three premier class wins and a 250cc victory take top billing ahead of his many podiums at the track, with the ‘Little Samurai’ last on the top step at Jerez in 2017 as he blitzed the field by over six seconds.

The three-time World Champion joins names such as Jorge Lorenzo, Sito Pons, Angel Nieto, Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez and Alex Criville to have corners named after them at the circuit.

Dani Pedrosa: “It’s very special, since the first days I came to this track when I was starting in GPs I already knew some Spanish names were here at this track like Nieto, Aspar, Criville and Pons, and to join them is unbelievable because it’s a very special track for me and a special track for the Championship as well. Here is where the crowd is closest, where you can feel all tthe spectators and it’s amazing to share the category with all those guys. I like this track so much and I’ve been fast here, so I’m just very pleased and I want to thank the track.”
