BRADL STRAIGHT BACK TO EUROPE FOR BRNO GRAND PRIX
Brno, 22 August: MotoGP returns to Europe for the middle race in a intense set of three in a row (immediately after this race, another journey across the English channel for the British GP at Silverstone) and this weekend LCR Honda racer Stefan Bradl will be contesting the popular Brno track for the Grand Prix Ceské Republiky. Stefan Bradl lies sixth overall and is anxious to regain momentum at Brno, where he won his first grand prix in 2008, in the 125cc class but before taking the track on his RC213V Stefan and some colleagues enjoyed a road tour at Brno city centre aboard some odd scooters.
“I left Indianapolis a bit disappointed because I was consistently fast throughout the free sessions but I crashed twice on Saturday and lacked some confidence during the race. After the great second place in Laguna Seca I was expecting a bit more than seventh. Anyway I have shown my pace and it’s nice to be back in Europe. Brno is a nice track for me because I won my first race in 2008, so it is always a special feeling. I think it’s a good circuit, the layout is interesting and I enjoy riding there. Today I had fun with Sandro and Karel riding some weird scooters in the city centre: completely different from my Honda machine but very funny!”
