Fresh From Indianapolis The Repsol Honda Team Arrive In The Czech Republic


With no rest, Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa have arrived in the Czech Republic in anticipation of this weekend’s Brno GP.

 

Bookmark and Share
A popular circuit with both the riders and fans, Brno is built in a natural bowl which has many elevation changes as the circuit navigates itself through the beautiful wooded scenery offering the spectators spectacular places to view. Marc and Dani were testing here in July – before the Summer break – and they’ll be hoping this will give them an advantage in terms of setting up the bike.

Both riders have enjoyed good results here in the past with Marc winning here last year (MotoGP) and also in 2012 (Moto2). Dani’s stand-out race here is from 2012 when he had a memorable battle with Lorenzo, claiming his first win at the Czech circuit in the MotoGP class where he’s also won in 250cc (2005) and in 125cc (2003).

TEAM QUOTES

Marc Marquez
Championship Standing: 1st - 250 points
“We’ve not really stopped! After the race on Sunday we had a nice dinner with the team and then yesterday we were travelling all day to Europe. Brno isn’t one of my favourite tracks but I’ve had quite good results there in the past. We were testing here a month ago and even if the grip was very low at the time, I hope some of the data we collected will be a help! Everyone knows
that historically Yamaha are strong here so we’ll have to work hard from Friday to give ourselves the best chance on Sunday!”
