Pepe Arqué began his motorsport career in karting, making his debut at the age of eight in the 2009 Catalan and Spanish Karting Championship before finishing runner-up in the Open OJP Catalonia Karting series a year later.

The Spaniard went on to claim the Open OJP Catalonia Karting title in 2011 and 2012 and was also second in the Micro-Rotax Spain in 2011 before coming fifth in the same competition the following two years, while he reached the final in the 2012 World Rotax Portugal.

More honours followed with Arqué crowned 2013 Aragon Karting Champion and winner of the 2014 Junior Winter Cup before a switch to rallycross in 2016.

He was a revelation in the Spanish Crosscar Junior Championship, finishing second in his maiden campaign before claiming the 2017 title, and this prompted a step up to the top tier where the rookie made an instant impact with a win at Carballo on his way to third in the overall standings.

Several podiums were achieved in 2019, while Arqué also balanced his Crosscar commitments with RX Academy appearances in Kouvola, Finland and Tierp, Sweden – bagging sixth and fourth respectively.

Last year Arqué finished fourth in the Spanish Crosscar Championship, having also notched second in the Catalonian Crosscar Championship, and this term he has registered podium finishes at Arteixo and Mollerussa despite a disrupted campaign.
