American Mikey Lou Sanchez is changing teams and series for 2023.
After taking a race win and finishing sixth in the 2022 RFME ESBK Moto4 National Championship in Spain, the 12-year-old from Texas is moving up to the 2023 RFME ESBK PreMoto3 Spanish National Championship with MRE Talent Team, which won the title last season.
Sanchez will ride a BeOn PreMoto3 racebike, which is powered by a 40-horsepower Yamaha YZ250F engine.
“I’m very excited to race this class,” said Sanchez. “It’s a big step up, but I’m ready, real ready!”
