"This two-week break has definitely felt longer than it was and now I‰Ûªm ready to get back on track and reunite with the team," Hayden said.
"It‰Ûªs the first European round of my WorldSBK career and clearly it will be a bit different in terms of schedule and atmosphere in the paddock, given the bigger presence of teams and riders from other classes. Aragon is not an easy track, there are definitely some technical sections with downhill braking and blind corner entries, but it‰Ûªs a great circuit to ride on so I can‰Ûªt wait to get started.
Located 100km southeast of Zaragoza and near the town of AlcaÌ±iz, the circuit hosted the first WorldSBK round in 2011, two years after its inauguration. In 2015, the series opted for the use of the MotoGP layout configuration of 5.077km, with 10 corners to the left, seven right-handers and no tight hairpin at the end of the back straight.
