A NEW TRACK AND ANOTHER STEP IN THE EVOLUTION OF THE APRILIA RS-GP
Preparation for the 2018 MotoGP World Championship continues with the second test of the season, where the Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing teams will be busy on the Chang International Circuit of Buriram in Thailand. This will be the first time for MotoGP on the relatively new Thai track which is 4554 metres long and was designed by German Hemann Tilke. The circuit is located near the city of Buriram, more than 400 kilometres from the capital of Bangkok.
In the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini camp, the spotlight will obviously be shining on the 2018 Aprilia RS-GP which Aleix Espargaró and Scott Redding introduced for the first time in Sepang. Initial opinions were positive for both riders, but verification on a different and brand new track will be fundamental for growth ahead of the official season start in Qatar.
