Luis Salom 39
Luis Salom was born in Mallorca on 7 August 1991 and made his debut in the 125cc World Championships in 2009.
Started in the championship with the Jack&Jones WRB team, where he raced in twelve Grand Prix and classified in five. This Mallorcan driver’s best race saw him come in sixth at Donington Park.
In 2010, and after a bad start to the season driving a Lambretta, the Mallorcan driver competed in all the races of the world championships, coming in fifth with an Aprilia in the Estorial Grand Prix, Portugal.

Joan Perelló 36
Joan Perelló was born on 6 October 1993 in Palma, Mallorca. It wasn’t until 2006 that Perelló started his sporting career, at the age of 12, participating in the Bancaja ‘Cuna de Campeones’ Cup.
Having participated in various competitions and racking up his share of victories, he made his international debut coming in third at the 2009 European Speed Championships, participating this same year as guest racer in the final test of the motorcycling world cup. The following year he raced five times as a guest racer alongside the best 125cc drivers in the world.
This year, 2011, Perelló is debuting as an official driver in the 125cc category, riding an Aprilia RSW125GP right from the first race of the MotoGP 125cc World Championships.
