    Former MotoGP Dani Pedrosa now has corner named after him at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto.

    Turn 6, formerly Curva Dry Sac, is now officially known as 'Pedrosa Corner' after a presentation at the circuit on Friday evening.

    The three-time World Champion joins names such as Jorge Lorenzo, Sito Pons, Angel Nieto, Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez and Alex Criville to have corners named after them at the circuit.

    The Spaniard spent his entire grand prix career with Honda – starting in the 125cc class in 2001, followed by two seasons in 250 and then 13 years at the factory Repsol team in MotoGP, culminating in his final race at the 2018 season finale in Valencia.

    Pedrosa and Honda claimed 54 race victories together, 31 in the premier-class, while winning the 125cc crown in 2003, then 250cc title in 2004 and 2005.
