Two wins and second in the championship
Luis Salom celebrates great successes in 2012. He achieves eight podium places, including two victories (Indianapolis and Aragon). When the apple of his eye wins his first, Roelof Waninge is sick at home for the TV. In Aragon however he stands on the podium. Salom ends the championship in second place.
After nearly three years (Salom drove part of the 2010 season at Team Molenaar) of intensive cooperation Salom at the end of the season moves to the factory team of KTM. There he wins seven races, but in the last race of the season the world title slips through his fingers. In 2016 Luis Salom dies in a crash on the Barcelona circuit, only 24 years old.
