The motorcycling championship will hold the 15th round of the calendar this weekend in the Chang International Circuit (Thailand), the first out of four races that will be held during this year’s overseas races.
This will be the second time that MotoGP visits the Chang racetrack after its debut last year. The track has a length of 4.554km, 12 turns (5 to left and 7 to the right) and two long straights. It is placed 400km away from the capital of the country, Bangkok, really close to Buriram city.
The Moto3 race is set to 22 laps (100.2km) under high temperatures and humidity. The Reale Avintia Racing Team riders arrive motivated and excited to be back on the Thai track. Tito Rabat, on the one hand, has the aim to be back on the points, as he did in the last few races. Karel Abraham, on the other hand, has already been training regularly after his injury and his illness so he arrives in good shape in a circuit he likes.
“I’m really excited to get the Thai GP started. It is a very fast track, full of long straights for Moto3, so the slipstream will be very important here. I’m really excited to start and I can’t wait to start working.”
“The Buriram circuit is very beautiful, I had the chance to race here there first time that MotoGP arrived in this place last year. As usually, we’ll try our best.”
