Motivation is high for Nico Terol ahead of Motegi Grand Prix
The Grand Prix of Japan returns to its traditional autumn slot this weekend following its postponement due to volcanic ash earlier in the year, tagging on to a Malaysia-Australia double header to make for three races in a row across different continents. The 125cc riders will travel all the way around the world and back in the quest to discover which of them will lift the title, with the final five races of the season taking place in just six weekends – an intense run that is sure to reward the coolest head.
Bancaja Aspar rider Nico Terol would have arrived at Motegi as the series leader had the race taken place as planned, thanks to his opening race victory in Qatar. As it is he does so after eleven rounds thanks to nine podiums and three victories – his second place finish in the most recent race at Aragón returning him to the top of the standings ahead of the final run-in.
Nico Terol: “I am really happy with my form over the last few races. To get the series lead back at Aragón was very positive but we have to keep our feet on the ground because there are a lot of races left and a lot of points up for grabs against tough rivals. I feel good and I want to make the most of my current form. I feel more and more motivated every day and I am going to give everything towards achieving a top result in Japan. My objective from now on is to try and win at every Grand Prix, to keep a cool head but to go on the attack and not hold back. We will need a good chassis set-up at Motegi because there are a lot of hard braking zones and acceleration points but it’s a track I like a lot.”
