Correos Prepago Yamaha VR46 Master Camp are looking forward to putting in a strong performance at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya. The team will put in their best effort to fulfil their potential, gunning for top results.
Manuel Gonzalez has left the unlucky Austrian GP behind him. He is eagerly anticipating riding at the Catalunya track, which he knows well and likes a lot. Last year he finished the Catalan GP in ninth place. Knowing that his race pace has only gotten better since then, he is fancying his chances for a top-5 result this weekend. He aims to score further championship points and move up from 11th in the standings.
Rookie Kohta Nozane is also familiar with the Monmeló circuit and is hoping that his experience at this track can be put to good use during Round 11. The Japanese rider has been steadily gaining experience since his return from injury at the British GP. The previous two rounds have helped him gain confidence and are the stepping stone for him to adapting his riding style to the Moto2 bike this weekend.
Work to create the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya began in 1989. Two years later, the track was opened, and it soon became a crowd favourite after hosting its first MotoGP race in 1992. With an exciting 4.6km layout consisting of 14 corners (six left, eight right), the Catalan round is known to produce thrilling races.
