Ajo Motorsport’s Efren Vazquez finished the 2011 season with a fourth place in front of his home crowd at Valencia. He did his best to stay on the bike in extremely difficult conditions as the weather again threw a spanner in the works of the Grand Prix with intermittent rain and treacherous track conditions. Vazquez would have loved to end the year with another podium, but regardless he was happy with the result and his season overall, despite expecting some better results at the start of 2011.
The race still had to decided the last 125cc title of the championship with Nicolas Terol finally deservedly taking the honours after title contender Johann Zarco crashed out in the second lap, crowing an excellent season with the World Championship title. Terol won seven of the season’s 17 race and finished with a gap of 40 points over runner-up Zarco.
Efren Vazquez: “I can´t deny that my hopes were a bit higher for this year but one has to remember that the competition has been extremely tough and the differences in the top group were really small.”
Aki Ajo: Vazquez had a good, steady season. It was a big job for use this year, but this season gave use new experiences and it was really great. I want to thank all those who have been involved. We have had a great package and awesome people who have taken responsibility.”
