With no rest between Misano and Aragon, the Reale Avintia Racing Team is facing a new challenge as the Aragon GP will be held this weekend just seven days after the last race. It is one of the most important weekends during the season as it’s one of team’s home races and it means an extra motivation for the weekend.
Last time out, Tito Rabat managed to collect 3 points as he finished 13th on Sunday’s race in a difficult race with a low grip tarmac. Karel Abraham, on the other hand, struggled all weekend long because of his illness but he managed to finish 17th and, despite the short distance between races, he is optimistic about his physical conditions as he expects to improve for the GP.
Besides, this will be the last weekend before the MotoGP paddock flies away for the 4 overseas races before the last race in Valencia by November time.
“We are in Aragon which is a home race for me and for the team and I can’t wait to put my leather suits on and ride again in Motorland. The goal is getting a good result here to keep the good performance we proved in the last races.”
“We’ll see because we have back to back races from Misano last weekend. Misano was very difficult for me because I was so sick. I haven’t finish my medications yet, it looks like I’m not sick anymore but there’s something I call collateral damage, I had some negative reactions to some medications that I was taking so this is big disadvantage for me. I hope it improves before the race, otherwise it could create some problems. From Silverstone I haven’t trained at all as I was injuried, then sick so it’s been almost a month without training and in this sport is very hard going out there with no preparation at all. This is the last European race before the overseas and I’m really looking forward to race hear since this is a track that I really like. It seems like it is going to rain on Saturday, I hope it doesn’t”.
