Jakub Kornfeil (born 8 April 1993) is a Grand Prix motorcycle racer from the Czech Republic. He currently competes in the Moto3 World Championship.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Kyjov, Kornfeil started racing competitively in supermoto from the age of eight years old, winning the 65 cc championship in 2002.[1] Championships at national and European level in minibikes followed, as well as the Czech Republic 125GP Championship in 2007, before Kornfeil moved into the Red Bull Rookies Cup in 2008. Kornfeil finished eight of the season's ten races in the top ten places, as he finished ninth overall, tying on points with Daniel Ruiz.[2] His second season in the championship was more successful, with top-eight finishes in every race, with three wins in the final four races enabling him to overhaul Sturla Fagerhaug by just two points.[3] He also finished fourth in the Italian 125GP championship.

125cc World Championship[edit]

After securing the Red Bull Rookies Cup, Kornfeil stepped up to Grand Prix level, making five appearances in the class towards the end of the season with the Loncin team, replacing Alexis Masbou.[4] Kornfeil finished four of the races with a best result of 19th at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Kornfeil and Tomoyoshi Koyama both moved from the Loncin team to make up Racing Team Germany's lineup for the 2010 season.[5] Although Koyama outscored his much less experienced team-mate, Kornfeil amassed 28 points from nine points-scoring finishes to end up 17th in the final championship standings. His best result in the season was a fifth place finish at his home Grand Prix which was held in damp conditions.
