After taking the Manufacturer World Title, it's a double win for the Italian brand in the 125's last season.
This makes the 38th world championship for Aprilia in Motorcycle Grand Prix racing.
Aprilia has now won 49 World Championships in the various motorcycle disciplines.
Noale, November 6th, 2011 - With the second place earned today on the Valencia circuit Nico Terol was crowned 2011 World Champion in the 125 class.
This is a long sought after confirmation for the young Spanish rider, born in Alcoy on September 27th, 1988.
In the race which closed out the history of the 125 class, eleventh place would have been enough for Terol to take the title. But after Frenchman Johann Zarco crashed out in the beginning stages of the race - the only rival within reach of the title - Terol lost no time, even moving into first place ten laps from the end, and rode his Aprilia RSA to second place behind Maverick Viñales, also astride an Aprilia.
With confirmation Aprilia adds the 125 class rider title to the manufacturer title, already awarded four rounds before the end of the championship, and strengthens its record as the most victorious Italian and European manufacturer of all those active in MotoGP with 294 Grand Prix races won (151 in 125 and 143 in 250) and 38 championship titles (19 manufacturer titles and 19 rider titles).
Aprilia now has a total of 49 World Championships in their trophy case. In fact, in addition to the 38 MotoGP titles, there are 9 titles in the Off Road discipline and 2 Superbike titles in the collection.
