LE MANS GP - PREVIEW2017-05-15 09:58
SIC Racing Team riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki will make their way to the prestigious Le Mans Bugatti Grand Prix Race Circuit this week, as they prepare to fight for the points in round five of the Moto3 Championship.
Located 200km from Paris, the unique French circuit combines many first gear corners and fast straights. Its stop-and-go characteristics make late braking and hard acceleration performance crucial for a good set up.
#7 ADAM NORRODIN
“After Jerez I travelled back home to Malaysia, which is the first time since the beginning of the year. After some difficult race weekends it was great to spend some time with my family; I think it has really helped me to find my focus again. I’m feeling refreshed and ready to get back to racing!
I like Le Mans, the circuit is beautiful; there are many hard braking parts to the layout, so it’s technically challenging but I enjoy riding there a lot. We have to come back fighting at Le Mans because for the last three races we haven’t scored any points. This is not acceptable.
I’m ready to push hard and find the extra that we need to be more competitive and secure a solid race result this weekend.”
#71 AYUMU SASAKI
“I’m really looking forward to going to Le Mans. I like the track and I think that if we can sort out the issues we had with the bike in Jerez, it can be a good race for us this weekend. It was great to finish 15th and in the points at Jerez but I know we can do better. I struggled with rear grip quite a lot, so if we can fix this at Le Mans for sure we can be more competitive. Overall the bike is very good and I feel confident, so let’s see what we can do at this next GP. As always we will aim high and work hard.”
