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 Arizona 77 rider, Stefano Nepa, arrives in a circuit that is not new for him and with charged batteries after Aragon race where he did not manage to get in points as he did in Misano.
“We are ready por the race. 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.”
