Toth joins American Racing and Team MMR for the 2023 JuniorGT Moto2 European Championship


Former MotoAmerica Junior Cup race winner Max Toth will join the American Racing Academy program and compete in the 2023 JuniorGP Moto2 European Championship.

The following is from American Racing…

The American Racing Team is pleased to announce that Max Toth has joined the American Racing Academy program on a long-term management deal that sees him receive direct support from Apex Motorsport Agency for the 2023 JuniorGP Moto2 European Championship campaign.

Toth will drive for Team MMR as part of a joint venture with the American Racing Team. He joined the team as a wildcard at Valencia in late 2022, riding a Moto2-category machine for the first time. For 2023, he will race the full seven-round, eleven-race calendar, spanning Spain and Portugal, learning Moto2 machines and pitting himself against future World Championship contenders.

The 17-year-old American comes to the project with a solid track record of European racing, having raced in Italy at MiniGP, CIV Junior and Moto3 levels for a number of years. In 2022 he moved up and competed in the Aprilia RS 660 Trophy, winning four races and ending the season as champion.

Stepping up to the JuniorGP Moto2 class puts Toth on the path to a World Championship career and the American Racing Academy will support him every step of the way.

Max Toth, Rider –
I am thrilled to be racing in Moto2 in JuniorGP in 2023. Being a Moto2 rider has been a dream of mine for a very long time and for it to actually come true is a dream come true. I am grateful to Massimiliano and Eitan for putting this project together and giving me the opportunity to not only represent them on the world stage but also the rest of the United States of America.

I look forward to working more closely with John Hopkins this year. His knowledge and experience will undoubtedly push me to be a better version of myself on and off the track. I believe we can achieve some great results, conquer new challenges and work harder than ever and I am ready and eager to start the race!

Eitan Butbul, co-owner of Apex Motorsports Agency and team manager of American Racing Team –
We are very happy that Max has joined the agency and the academy program. He’s a great rider who has already shown how talented he is and that he’s ready to fight for the top.

We understood last year that a program that extends through to Junior GP will be useful to the American Racing mission to prepare and bring drivers from the USA to the forefront of World Championship racing. The European Moto2 class now has the standard of being a viable alternative route to the World Stage intermediate class and it is no longer essential for riders to progress through the Moto3 ranks first. Therefore, after speaking to MMR team owner Massimiliano Morlacchi, it was clear that they were a perfect fit for us and we started working together. It gave us the opportunity to be involved and have a place for a new American rider on the road to the World Championship.

I would also like to say a big thank you to Massimo Rivola from Aprilia, who helped us enormously in organizing this project.

John Hopkins, co-owner of agency Apex Motorsports and race director of American Racing Team –
We are super excited to have Max signed. He’s a really strong young American talent that we can’t wait to help build and grow. He’s really motivated and determined to race in Europe, which is obviously what we need to do these days to get Americans into the World Championship. So we are delighted to have secured him a Moto2 spot in JuniorGP for 2023. He will also work very closely with the American Racing Team in the World Championship and travel to many races to see them how it works.

I’ve said throughout my career that it’s much harder for Americans or other drivers from outside Europe at this level because of the sacrifice of spending whole years at a time away from home while they’re in the prime of their lives her teenage years. But Max is ready to take on that challenge to get where he wants to go, he’s doing it happily to prepare to hopefully take him to the Moto2 World Championship in the future. He’s a great boy, comes from a fantastic family and we’re excited to be working with him. Along with Sean and Rory, who are also managed by us, it is a real privilege to have riders on our team under our management and we all have a great year ahead of us!

Massimiliano Morlacchi, Team Owner MMR –
First of all, I am very happy to be able to continue this year in the colors of the Trofeo Aprilia RS660; At the same time, I am very pleased to announce the start of the collaboration with American Racing, a team of absolute importance in the Moto2 World Championship that trains and nurtures young talents from America. The whole team is very happy to welcome Max as the official driver for 2023. We have been following his last season closely together with the staff of BK Corse (Trofeo Aprilia RS660 promoter) and we have noticed his professionalism and his potential, the same potential that showed in the first weekend in Valencia where Max was with a convincing performance as a wild card. Of course we want to thank the American Racing Team for this collaboration that gives prestige to our 2023 and makes us proud. Now word on the track.
