Suzuki Looking To Carry Positive Performace Forward To Assen

Posted:

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR riders Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vi̱ales are looking forward to this weekend‰Ûªs eighth round of the MotoGP‰ã¢ World Championship at Assen in The Netherlands following positive results and three-days of intense testing in Barcelona-Catalunya and also Aragon Circuit in Spain.

After qualifying 1-2 on the grid at the Catalunya MotoGP race, both Spaniards are confident with their new GSX-RR engines that were introduced for the race on June the 14th, and they are positive that the excellent handling characteristics of the Suzuki GSX-RR chassis will suit the twisting TT Circuit of Assen, a venue known as ‰Û÷The Cathedral‰Ûª of motorcycling.

‰ÛÏThe Cathedral is one of my best tracks and I think that our machine will be very nice to ride here." Espargaro said. "The circuit is tight with lots of changes in direction, which is perfect for our machine thanks to its chassis and set-up.

"At Catalunya we had our first taste of how high we can be when we are ok; and being first and second on the grid was unbelievable and gave us an incredible boost. Of course we still need to work a lot to fill certain gaps.

"We still need to refine the new engine specs and to find even more effective set-ups, which is why we made the tests. I feel positive about Assen, we have a competitive package and the track is favourable, so let‰Ûªs go and do our best.‰Û
