Opened in 1991, the Circuit de Catalunya has been on the MotoGP calendar since 1992, when the main race was won by Wayne Rainey. The 2.937 mile track is made up of a long straight, over one kilometre in length and is completed by a series of fast left and right corners, making it an exciting track to ride.

Tetsuta aims to make the best of his free practice and qualifying time to give himself the best chance of a good result in the 23 lap race on Sunday.

Gianluca Montiron, Teluru team JiR Webike’s team principal

“Catalunya will be an interesting GP for the layout of the circuit and maybe for the hot conditions that could mean the riders need to adopt a different riding style on used tyres. On our side we'll see if are able to make the improvement that we are expecting around the middle of the season considering the kilometres Tetsu has ridden on the Moto2 machine and reducing the gap compared to the riders who have used TSR machines previously. From a technical point of view evolution parts made by TSR come from Japan to test during the Assen race weekend therefore this week we’ll concentrate on Tetsuta’s riding style.”

Tetsuta Nagashima, Teluru team JiR Webike’s rider

”Again, it will be the first time for me to ride at the Montmello track, and it will be important to make a progress in a good pace heading for the race as we only have limited practice sessions as always. I have to find out the strategy how I deal with the track as soon as possible, and will try to solve the problems that I've been having up until Mugello at the same time, and will give my best as always. As I'm really looking forward to get a point now, I would concentrate on my riding, and wish to have a positive weekend.”
