MOTOGP - DOUBLE OVERSEAS ROUNDS
AFTER A GOOD START IN QATAR, APRILIA HEADS TO THE ARGENTINIAN ROUND ON THE TERMAS DE RIO HONDO CIRCUIT
Noale, 29 March 2016 – For the third year in a row MotoGP will take on the Argentinian Termas de Rìo Hondo circuit, the first of the two overseas rounds which will have the teams and riders then heading to Texas. The 4,800 plus metres of South American track will be an important test bench for the new Aprilia RS-GP which, in its budding career, has taken on tests and a race only on the Losail circuit.
The Aprilia Racing Team Gresini heads to the second round of the season highly motivated after the Losail début, where riders Bautista and Bradl consistently improved their feeling with the new bike. For Alvaro the first championship points astride the 2016 RS-GP also arrived, a result achieved thanks to his excellent race pace management.
From what all the key players in the project are saying, the goals for these initial races are clear: lap consistently to get to know the new bike and to achieve the best possible race result.
