Tito Rabat returns to the fray at revamped Indianapolis

 In Moto2, News


After a three week summer break the Moto2 World Championship battle resumes this weekend in Indianapolis, with Spaniard Tito Rabat and teammate Mika Kallio both determined to start the second half of the season with a strong showing in America.

Rabat heads to Indianapolis with a 19-point advantage over Kallio at the top of the Championship standings; a lead he is keen to extend this weekend at a track where he won convincingly last season.

However, the 25-year-old Spaniard will have a fight on his hands, as Kallio enjoyed a strong finish to the first half of the season and heads to Indianapolis determined to finish round 10 of the Moto2 World Championship ahead of his teammate once again.

But it’s not just each other that the two Marc VDS riders will have to contend with this weekend. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been extensively revamped over the past 12 months, with five of the 16 turns reconfigured to offer more passing opportunities, while the whole of the infield circuit has been resurfaced.

Tito Rabat:
“I’m happy with how the first half of the season went, but now we must focus on the second half, starting this weekend in Indianapolis. My approach for these last nine races will be the same as for the first nine; work hard, put in 100% every time I get on the bike and fight to win races. On paper the Indianapolis track layout has changed a lot, but tracks always look different from the seat of the bike than they do on paper, so we’ll see just how big a change there’s been when we get there.”
