Bautista And Redding Ready To Race At The Historic Le Mans Circuit In France

One of the most famous motorsport venues in the World, Le Mans, awaits this weekend the Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini riders, Alvaro Bautista and Scott Redding, for the French Grand Prix, fifth round of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship. The event is held, since 2000, at the Bugatti circuit, located in the immediate outskirts of the town of the Sarthe region, famous all over the World for hosting the 24 Hours automobile race.

Alvaro Bautista - fresh from the sixth place finish in the recent Spanish Grand Prix, and who also finished sixth in the last two editions of the Grand Prix of France, in 2012 and in 2013 - is looking for another good result: in this respect, could be helpful the recent testing session completed at Jerez the day after the race, during which the Spaniard tried several new suspension and brakes parts, working closely with Showa and Nissin engineers.

His team-mate, Scott Redding, will be back on a track on which last year he triumphed for the first time in the Moto2 class: the Briton, who has collected points in three out of his first four races in MotoGP, is determined to return the fastest rider aboard the Open class Honda RCV1000R after two complicated races, albeit useful for his apprenticeship.

ALVARO BAUTISTA “Le Mans is not one of my favourite tracks and probably this is due to the fact that often the bad weather makes it difficult to work properly on the bike during practice. In any case, our goal remains the same we set ourselves before Jerez, that is collect as many points as possible. It’s difficult, however, to make a prediction, because the weather forecasts predict rain for Sunday. During the test we have carried out the day after the Spanish Grand Prix, we could test several new solutions that have worked well: therefore, we hope that they will prove useful also on this track”.

SCOTT REDDING “Last year, in Le Mans, I won my first race in the Moto2 class, so I am very happy to return to this circuit. The only concern is related to possible difficult conditions because of the bad weather: I never had the opportunity to ride a MotoGP bike in wet conditions, so this would be a completely new situation for me. Otherwise, if the track will remain dry, I think that it can suits well the characteristics of our bike, as long as we can find more grip than we did in Jerez. Like Jerez, Le Mans is quite a narrow and small track, so it will take a little time to adjust the electronic controls and to adapt my riding style, but I think that we learned a lot from this point of view from the Spanish GP weekend, also considering the positive day of testing carried out after the race”.

FAUSTO GRESINI “The Bugatti circuit is without a doubt very unique and demanding: I personally like a lot this event, not only because of the track layout, but also because you can feel the passion of the fans; there is a very engaging and exciting atmosphere. Hopefully we can start well the weekend, and thus continuing the string of results opened in Jerez with Alvaro and to be protagonists in the Open class with Redding”.
