Hello I'm Can Öncü,

This is my blog.

After the last race of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I had a lot of FIM CEV Repsol races and One ValenciaGP wildcard and then again the FIM CEV after in Albacete 2.

It was great to go to the Valencia GP for Moto3. From FP1 we were already strong and in FP2 and FP3 as well as Qualifying we were always in the top10. And I pushed for one lap and I got 4th on the starting grid. I was really happy, my target was to fight with the top guys.


It was wet and on the starting grid for the race my brother came and told me to be clever, a lot of guys would crash.

I remembered that and after the race started Tony Arbolino and Bez got away. They were pushing so much but later they crashed. I held my speed and I made a very good win. I was really happy, I enjoyed it a lot and this was a really good feeling because I will race next year full time in Moto3.


This was my first wildcard and to win the race I was very happy and I was proud to be in the family of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup because I learnt here everything.

After the Rookies Cup, when you go to to the World Championship you are more-or-less ready because Gustl, Roma, Dani, Alberto, already teach you how to fight when you need to push or when you need to wait. So it is the best place to start your carrier.


i just want to say thank you to everybody for these nice funny crazy histories and I will never forget.


Next year I will not race in the Rookies Cup but I cannot wait to watch the new crazy riders, in 1 corner 20 riders hahah!!

Good luck to everyone and hope to see everybody next year.
