MotoGP: Marquez Looks Forward to Trying the First Race in the Indian Series


HRC racer Marc Marquez is looking forward to trying out the first MotoGP race at the Buddh International Circuit in India, this weekend.

“I am very excited to meet all the fans in India. It is always an exciting moment when we take MotoGP to new countries, new people and new fans to share our sport and passion,” said Marquez, quoted from an official statement, Thursday .

The Buddh Circuit, which is in the middle of an Indian society that is very familiar with motorbike transportation, is 4.96 km long and is expected to produce a thrilling racing round.

Moreover, this circuit combines long straight tracks, sharp turns and several corners that require the technical expertise of the racers to find the opportunity to be at the forefront of the 13th round of MotoGP.

Marquez said he would learn quickly, try to increase his speed and understand the 13 sharp corners at Buddh as soon as possible with the Honda RC213V he was riding.

“We need to work hard to understand everything about the track and our situation with the bike. The goal is to have a good weekend, continue to improve and have a good race,” said Marquez.

On the other hand, his teammate, Joan Mir, hopes that the new track can also bring new luck after the San Marino MotoGP which ended in difficulty for him.

“Visiting new places is always fun. I often see on social media that many fans are from India, so I think it is very important and fun to meet them,” said Mir.

“The track itself looks like it will be interesting with lots of different elements. There are a lot of things to understand when going to a new circuit, so it’s important to do every step well,” he added.
