IN BARCELONA THERE WILL ONCE AGAIN BE THREE RS-GP MACHINES IN THE RACE TO CONTINUE GROWING
The 2019 MotoGP calendar takes the action to Barcelona for the GP of Catalunya. A modern circuit, Catalunya was completely resurfaced and reconfigured in 2018, characterised by changes in slope, fast turns and a long straight longer than one thousand metres.
In addition to the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini factory riders, Aleix Espargaró (who is on his home pitch) and Andrea Iannone, Aprilia will be able to count on the contribution of test rider, Bradley Smith. Once again, after Qatar and Jerez, there will be three RS-GP machines in the race. This is an extra effort to push along the growth process of the RS-GP which, in this first third of the season, has consistently demonstrated its ability to battle for the top ten and which has racked up twice as many points as last year with Aleix.
From a technical point of view, the Spanish GP is always rather critical in terms of grip management, an important factor, particularly in the race. For precisely this reason, the entire team will be focused on preparing for Sunday in terms of pace and consistency.
