This week Bradley Smith heads to Argentina aiming to build on his positive form shown so far this season, at the exciting new Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, for round 3 of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship.
After an absence of fifteen years, the MotoGP paddock returns to Argentina at the fast and meandering Circuito Termas de Rio Hondo, located in the province of Santiago del Estero, which hosts its inaugural MotoGP event.
The young line up of the Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team will compete on the 4,806 metre circuit, which features a long back straight of just over 1 kilometre in length, with five left corners and nine right. Both of the riders will once again try to prove themselves as the top satellite bikes, and battle for World Championship points in the 25 lap race on Sunday.
Britain’s Bradley Smith aims to continue his confident start to the season and assert himself as the leading satellite MotoGP bike in Argentina, having finished with a personal best position of 5th in Texas.
“For sure it will be very exciting for all of us to return to Argentina after so many years. The fans there have so much passion and I am truly looking forward to the race on this brand new circuit of Termas de Rio Hondo. All the facilities are partly still under construction, so it’s a big step into the unknown. After my best ever result, and finishing as the leading Yamaha in Texas, I am determined to carry on this positive display. The Yamaha feels great and I am pleased with my performance over race distance, so for sure with a big team effort we will be able to get a competitive result in Argentina this weekend”.
