Pedrosa excited to race at Silverstone again after missing out in previous season

 In MotoGP, News

The Silverstone Circuit in Great Britain plays host to the sixth round of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship this weekend. After a successful visit to Montmeló the Repsol competitors will continue their fight for glory at the British track. It is the largest layout on the calendar at 5,900 metres.

One year ago, Repsol Honda Team’s Casey Stoner dominated the weekend, taking pole position on the Saturday and storming to victory on the Sunday. Teammate Dani Pedrosa missed the event through injury. Both will be busy this weekend adapting to the Bridgestone tyre compounds, with which they undertook testing last week at Montmeló.

Dani Pedrosa “I missed the Silverstone race last year due to my injury, so I’m especially excited to go back racing at this track. As I said after the test we did in Catalunya, we were working a lot on different settings on the bike, we had some improvements and I hope we can make another step forward in Silverstone.

It’s a fast track, with many changes of direction and we need an agile bike and a good set up for both the fast and slow corners. In Britain, the weather is always very unstable, but let’s see if we are lucky this time and we can enjoy dry conditions”.
