The team, who made their Moto3 debut in Qatar just weeks ago, placed first in round three of the season with Spanish rider, Aron Canet.

The former Grand Prix and Superbikes champion Biaggi created the team in 2017, when they competed in the Moto3 class of the Italia CIV Championship.

One year later they would move to the FIM Junior World Championship.

But Biaggi’s goal has always been to enter Moto3 on the Grand Prix stage, a feat that he achieved in just two years.

Biaggi retired from professional racing in 2015.

He occasionally competed up until mid 2017 when a near death accident changed the Italian’s perspective on life.

Biaggi, who was 46 years old at the time, crashed during a practice session for a Supermoto race that was to be held near Rome.

He was in hospital for 19 days, where it was touch-and-go at points.

It changed the 250cc Grand Prix Champion’s outlook on life and family soon became his focus.

“I almost died and I understood that life is a precious gift that cannot be wasted,” Biaggi said.

“[My aim is] to give love and happiness to my son and to my beloved ones.”

At the time of the incident, Biaggi reflected on accidents that other athletes had been involved in and which further contributed to his wakeup call.

“I’ve thought a great deal [about]... Schumacher and Hayden and I’ve realised that sometimes you can really lose it all in the blink of an eye,” Biaggi said, in 2017.

Former Formula One Champion Michael Schumacher was in a coma for six months after a skiing accident five years ago.

Former Grand Prix Champion Nicky Hayden succumbed to injuries after being hit by a car while training on his bicycle on the Rimini Coast in 2017.

Biaggi continues to jump on his motorbike, and yes, he still goes full throttle once in a while but has retired from any competitive racing since the accident.

Fourteen years later, you can now find him on the MotoGP circuit coaching Canet rather than racing himself.

Max Racing and KTM Ajo are the only teams in Moto3 housing one rider.

The other 14 teams in the division all host two seats.  

Canet finished the 2018 Moto3 championship in sixth position behind Lorenzo Dalla Porta in fifth and gained a podium finish for Max Racing at their round one debut this year.

Given the grit that Canet displayed over the weekend in his American GP win, Max Racing is looking like a strong contender for the Moto3 championship.  

Canet is in equal first position in the Moto3 championship with Jaume Masia, both on 45 points.
