Redding ready to race at Aragon

Scott Redding is racing at Aragon aboard a MotoGP bike for the first time.

Aragon, Spain – Scott Redding heads back to Spain this weekend for round 14 of the MotoGP World Championship, which takes place at the purpose built Motorland Aragon complex close to Alcañiz.

The 21-year-old Briton endured a tough weekend last time out in Misano, where 13th position ended his five race run as the top Open Class Honda rider.

Redding is racing at Aragon aboard a MotoGP bike for the first time this weekend but it’s a track he knows well, having finished fourth in the Moto2 race there last season. The British rider also thinks that the characteristics of the Aragon circuit could suit well his Honda RCV1000R.

Scott Redding: “Aragon is quite a nice track and even though it will be again a new circuit for me on a MotoGP bike, I think that it could be good for our technical package. At Misano we faced a difficult weekend and we struggled to be fast, so now we are determined to be back at the level of competitiveness we put on display in the previous races. We will work hard to get back in front of the other Open Class Honda riders and, if possible, we will also try to fight with some Factory bikes this weekend.”
