OFFICIAL DÉBUT FOR THE MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN THAILAND
MotoGP is preparing for an important début on the Thai circuit of Buriram which will host a World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing weekend for the first time. Riders and teams have already had the chance to get to know the track during three days of testing at the beginning of the season, coming away with positive impressions of the structure and the layout.
Aleix Espargaró is heading to Buriram on a wave of satisfaction after taking a brilliant sixth place in Aragón, the best result of the season for him and for Aprilia. The Thai circuit, with characteristics different from Motorland di Aragón, proved to be rather complex during the preseason tests, but the situation could change after a long season of tests and upgrades.
The situation is similar for Scott Redding, who had tackled the tests at the season start as a new entry with Aprilia, therefore using the sessions both to increase familiarity with the new bike and to understand the characteristics of an entirely new track.
