Someone brought this up recently, I did a search but couldn't find it. BUT here's the figures for Spanish riders in the latest GP grids. 125 race: 9 out of 30 riders are Spanish 250 race: 4 out of 32 riders are Spanish 500 race: 4 out of 20 riders are Spanish. Seems like the Spanish really are putting a lot of effort into getting riders into World Championship racing. Is this just a numerical coincidence, or do they have a programme (that we, obviously, do not!)??
