Abraham: I believe that the Brno Circuit will be different on a MotoGP bike
Debut in the premier class in front of the Czech fans awaits for Karel Abraham. The Cardion AB Motoracing rider is starting the second half of his premiere season in the MotoGP from 12th position in the overall standings.
Karel Abraham, who enter the premier class after he won the last race of the 2010 season in Moto2 class, finished four races in top ten so far. His best results scored in Jerez and Silverstone where he crossed the finish line in seventh place. „I have to admit that if somebody predicted me these result when the season started I wouldn’t believe him. But now I know that I can do even better,“ said Karel Abraham.
„Despite the fact that the Brno Circuit is my home circuit I have no possibility to practice here during the season,“ continued Abraham. „I have experience from the first half of the season that all circuits are completely different on a MotoGP bike. It’s gonna be interesting to see if the situation will be the same this weekend.“
With the total length of 5 403 metres, the Brno Circuit is very demanding for the rider‘s body. „It suits my style, although it’s very difficult to find the right set-up of the bike here. It has a lot of fast corners, not chicanes. Some riders have a problem in Brno due to big elevation, but I like it,“ admitted the twenty-one years old Czech rider.
Karel Abraham showed significant progress during the first half of the season, especially during the qualifying practices. „Start of the race and the first two or three laps are still my biggest weakness, but I believe that when I solve this problem I will be able to fight for top ten finish in every race.“
The Cardion AB Motoracing rider will complete the Friday and Saturday sessions with the bike in the standard livery, but in the race will start in a special white livery. „We think that the start of the first Czech rider in the premier class on his home circuit is exceptional event to which we want to draw attention,“ added Karel Abraham Sr., rider’s father and manager of the Cardion AB Motoracing team.
