The Moto2 World Championship enters its second third this weekend as the seventh round of the season takes place on the outskirts of Barcelona at the Circuit de Catalunya.

This is the second round to take place on Spanish soil this season, following Jerez, and the local riders can once again count on the partisan home support as they battle for success in the most combative of all international level motorcycle racing categories.

Whether it is in the 125cc World Championship or the Moto2 Spanish Championship both MAPFRE Aspar riders know what it is like to win at the Circuit de Catalunya and that experience could be crucial this weekend as they continue the battle to turn around a difficult season so far.

Jordi Torres benefitted from some major changes to his set-up at the last race in Italy whilst Nico Terol is particularly determined to shine in front of the home supporters after missing the Jerez round through injury.

Jordi Torres:
“I am very excited about the upcoming GP of Catalunya, which is really close to my house. It is a special race for me and the track suits me so I am going to be giving everything to score a good result. We took a step forward with the set-up at Mugello so we will work from this base and try to be even more competitive this weekend. We made some important changes to the bike at Mugello and after making progress there we need to build on it and adapt the set-up to the Circuit de Catalunya. I love the track, the fast corners suit my style and I am sure this can be a good race for us.”

Nico Terol:
“I couldn’t race at Jerez because of injury, which came at a bad time because we were just finding some confidence, so I am really motivated ahead of this next home race in Barcelona. We have had a tough season so far but I am really looking forward to this weekend and I am at full strength, hopeful of a good result. I have some great memories of this circuit, including my victory there in the 125cc class, so the objective is to enjoy myself again and work hard to put things right. I won three races last season and I clearly haven’t forgotten how to ride. I have a team of fighters, myself included, and we will not stop until we find a set-up for this bike that allows me to ride freely again. It is a demanding circuit but it is also a lot of fun.”
