Aleix Espargaro looking forward to signing off a great 2013 in front of fans at Valencia

 In MotoGP, News


You have to go back to 2006 for the last time the MotoGP World Championship went down to the wire and an unforgettable weekend that saw Nicky Hayden clinch the title as Valentino Rossi crashed out of a dramatic race won by Troy Bayliss.

Seven years on and it has happened again: this time Marc Márquez holds the aces with a thirteen-point advantage over Jorge Lorenzo but knowing that anything can happen in motorcycle racing. Lorenzo arrives in Spain on the back of two straight wins, aiming for one more dramatic twist in the championship.

Whilst the MotoGP World Championship will be decided this Sunday the title of CRT Champion was tied up two races ago by POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar rider Aleix Espargaró. The Spaniard signs off from the team this weekend determined to score the victory that eluded him due to a crash last time out at Motegi.

Aleix Espargaró:
“I am really looking forward to racing at home this weekend. It will be a special and emotional weekend for me because it is the end of an important era in my life, being my final race with the POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar Team. I really want to say goodbye to the team with the best possible result. The bike has given us some great results over the past two years so hopefully we can produce one more. Even though we tied up the CRT championship already in Australia we have gone two races without a win now for one reason or another so the objective is clear: we want to win this one and finish the season with a smile. It is quite a tight circuit and I think that should suit us so we will be doing everything we can to make the most of our advantage and score a top result.”
