Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team Anticipate Action-Packed Argentina GP

Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team Anticipate Action-Packed Argentina GP

The Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team is looking forward to exploring a new track this weekend: the Autódromo Internacional de Termas de Río Hondo for Round 3 of the 2022 Moto2 World Championship.

Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team‘s Manuel Gonzalez and Keminth Kubo are ready to level up for the upcoming Grand Prix of Argentina this weekend.

Gonzalez gained valuable experience in wet conditions at the previous round in Indonesia. With increased knowledge of the bike, he feels ready to tackle the next challenge: racing at a completely new track for him. Though he has never visited the Termas de Río Hondo circuit before, he is feeling confident as he expects the flowing lines will suit his riding style.


The round in Mandalika was a tough but valuable experience for Kubo. He will bring his newly acquired knowledge with him to the upcoming round on Argentine soil. Like his teammate, Kubo is excited to get to know a new track and is keen to get to work, starting already on Thursday during the team‘s track walk.

The 4.8km long Termas de Río Hondo Circuit was added to the MotoGP calendar in 2014. The track was remodelled two years earlier to make it Latin America's most modern circuit. With an exciting lay-out that includes a mixture of fast corners (five left, nine right) and a 1076m longest straight, the fans can be assured that they will see plenty of racing and overtaking action again. A devastating fire in February 2021 destroyed a large part of the paddock, but it has been rebuilt since then. The MotoGP paddock is looking forward to return to this circuit after the three-year interval due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

The Grand Prix of Argentina is held in the GMT -3 time zone. Moto2's FP1 will take place on Friday afternoon from 09:55 - 10:35, local track time followed by FP2 from 14:10 - 14:50. On Saturday, FP3 will be held from 09:55 - 10:35 and the qualifying sessions from 13:30 - 14:10. On Sunday, the Warm Up is held from 10:20 - 10:30 and the race starts at 13:20.

"We are about to start the third race of the year with more information and knowledge on the bikes and experience with the team. As usual, on Thursday we will walk the track with the riders. I love it! It's important to know the circuit and to build a stronger relationship between the team and the riders. Then we'll have a meeting to choose the set-up with which we start the weekend. We will work a lot, as always, trying to have a good weekend in Argentina!"

"I‘m really excited about going to Argentina because it‘s a country I like a lot - the people and the places. The track is also very nice. It‘s a track that I don‘t know yet. I‘ve never been there before, but I think it will be a good track for me because it‘s flowing when you ride the right lines. It will be a challenge to find the right settings, but we have some information about it from previous years. I usually adapt to tracks really fast, so I‘m really looking forward to going there."

Keminth Kubo

"I'm travelling to Argentina with high motivation after the difficult weekend we had in Indonesia. I'll work hard from Thursday with the team, and I‘m confident that I can improve more and more."
