MotoGP GP of the Americas – COTA
The MotoGP World Championship heads to Austin for the third round of the season in the spectacular Circuit of the Americas this weekend. The Reale Avintia Racing rider, Tito Rabat, arrives in the United States with high motivation after completing his best weekend since he moved up to MotoGP in Argentina. The former Moto2 World Champion hopes to take another step forward in Austin, a track where he struggled in the last two seasons, but he is confident for this weekend following the positive results in the first two races in Qatar and Termas.
For his teammate Xavier Simeon, the Grand Prix of the Americas will be a new opportunity to continue learning and progressing in the MotoGP class. In Argentina on Saturday he was the best rookie in qualifying and, in Texas he hopes to keep improving to fight for the points on Sunday.
“I’m very happy with the way we’ve started the World Championship and I’m extra motivated for the third race of the year in Texas. Austin is a track that I like a lot, has fast, slow curves, straights, hard braking areas and to be honest, it will be a great challenge for me, because the last two years in MotoGP were not very good for me, but I’m confident that with my Ducati I will be much more competitive. We must continue with our feet on the ground and with the same motivation”.
“I arrive in Austin very motivated and eager for the weekend. It’s a track that in the past has always been good for me, but with the Ducati in MotoGP it will be very different. The weekend in Argentina was always better and better and I want to continue in the same line to improve, be closer and closer to the points zone and take every opportunity to continue learning the secrets of the premier class”.
