The Jerez Circuit will see the fourth race of the Moto GP World Championship season held this coming weekend and the Moto3 riders of Team Calvo are looking forward to returning to home shores after a less successful weekend in Argentina.
Isaac Viñales goes into the Jerez weekend with the top 5 as his goal, after a well-deserved seventh place in Argentina having started as 18th on the grid.
The usual three rider team will be joined by 16 year old Marcos Ramírez, who will make his debut in the Moto3 world championship with a wildcard.

“After three races away from Europe I’m longing to get to Jerez where we had a very strong pre-season. We’ve been working very hard with the team and we need to spend less time working on the basic setup. If everything goes well, I think we can put on a good show for the fans and get some good results. During the race in Argentina I had problems with my back but I had a couple of days rest and I hope that it won’t give me any more trouble, because at home I want to do well no matter what.”

“To participate in the world championship is something that I’ve dreamt of all my life and the Circuit of Jerez is the perfect location to do so, so I’m super happy to be given this opportunity. I’ve tried to prepare myself by doing a lot of physical exercise and get on the bike as often as I could, I’ve been doing dirt track, motocross and have also been riding around on a Moto3 bike to familiarise myself again with the feeling of such a bike. My goal is to be fighting for a points-position.”
