Joan Mir Mayrata (born 1 September 1997) is a Spanish Grand Prix motorcycle racer. Mir has also been a competitor in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and the CEV Moto3 Championship.[1]He won the 2017 Moto3 World Championship with Leopard Racing.

Career[edit]

Prior to moving up to the Moto3 world championship, Palma-born Mir competed for two seasons in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2013 and 2014, finishing as runner-up (with three wins) to Jorge Martín in 2014. Mir contested the CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship in 2015. Mir won four of the first six races, but faded towards the end of the season, and ultimately finished fourth in the championship.

Moto3 World Championship[edit]

Mir made his Grand Prix début in 2015 with Leopard Racing at Phillip Island replacing the injured Hiroki Ono. Mir started 18th on the grid but failed to finish the race after an incident with John McPhee.

In 2016 Mir competed full-time in the Moto3 World Championship with Leopard Racing, partnering Fabio Quartararo and Andrea Locatelli. He finished the championship in 5th position as rookie of the year, scoring 144 points.

He remained for a second season in 2017 and completely dominated the class, taking 10 wins and finishing 93 points ahead of his nearest rival. Critics compared his racecraft to legends such as Valentino Rossi and Marc Márquez.

Moto2 World Championship[edit]

In 2018[2], Mir moved up to Moto2 with Marc VDS Racing Team, after signing a four year deal with the team and HRC.
