MOTOGP IN GERMANY AT THE SHORTEST CIRCUIT ON THE CALENDAR.
ANOTHER EXAM FOR THE APRILIA RS-GP, BAUTISTA AND BRADL ARE HIGHLY MOTIVATED
The MotoGP Championship approaches its ninth round of the season on the shortest track of the calendar. In fact, it will be the 3,671 metres of the Sachsenring in Germany hosting the next round of the premier category. This will be the umpteenth important exam for the Aprilia RS-GP on a very peculiar circuit. With only 3 right-handers and no less than 10 left-handers, the German track demands great efforts from technicians and riders alike to find the right setup.
The Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders arrive in Germany highly motivated, albeit for different reasons. Stefan Bradl is on his home pitch, keen to do well in front of his fans and improve his feeling compared to Assen, a race where he struggled, despite achieving a solid eighth place finish. One of the protagonists in the Netherlands, Alvaro Bautista saw an excellent result for himself and for Aprilia go up in smoke just a few turns from the chequered flag. The bitter finale, however, does not cancel out the excellent progress shown by the Spanish rider, determined to confirm his growth on the Sachsenring.
