Pedrosa out to enjoy racing at one of his favourite tracks

 In MotoGP, News

The Motorcycling World Championship is approaching its end, starting the most exciting part of the series, where the titles will be decided and the Repsol riders will play a key role. Dani Pedrosa will try to fight again for victory at the next round at the Motegi track, owned by Honda. Andrea Dovizioso and Dani Pedrosa have only a 15-point difference between them in third and fourth position respectively. A year ago, the Japanese Grand Prix was sad for Pedrosa, as a crash in the first practice forced him to retire from the title battle after fracturing his collarbone. Twelve months later, completely recovered and with the most competitive bike of the last seasons, the Repsol rider is, toghether with his Australian team mate, one of the main contenders to victory, after finishing three consecutive times in second position in the last three races.

Dani Pedrosa: “Motegi is one of my favourite circuits not only for the layout but also for the atmosphere; I always ride well there and feel a lot of support from the Japanese fans and I think this year will be even more special for them.

Obviously, last year I had a hard time there due to my injury, but I want to focus on my riding and enjoy the GP. I go there with the same approach as the last races: trying to do our best in all the sessions. We’ve been at a good level, with three second places in a row and I am looking forward to this race.

I have won at this track in 125 and 250, but not yet in MotoGP, so that’s a big motivation for me. I enjoy racing in Motegi and together with my team will do our best to perform well”.
