Team Suzuki Press Office – August 10.

The summer break is over for the MotoGP™ riders and Team SUZUKI ECSTAR’s Aleix Espargaró and Maverick Viñales are heading to Spielberg, Austria for the 10th GP of the season this weekend.

The Red Bull Ring is a newcomer in the MotoGP™ calendar, but the riders have already had the chance to test there some weeks ago in a two-day session that allowed them to appreciate its characteristics but – most importantly –to also gather information and prepare for the race.

The riders arrive in Austria after hard races in Assen and Germany, where rain made the set-up difficult for the GSX-RR, although they were very useful to Suzuki’s engineers to learn the machine’s reactions in wet conditions and work through them during the summer break. This will give a further boost to Viñales and Espargaró for a positive race, as the test in July proved the GSX-RR to be a competitive machine thanks to its chassis characteristics.

The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg is located in the scenic Murtal-region of Styria. The circuit was originally built in 1969, then known as the Österreichring. In 1996 it was rebuilt with the track-layout it still has today; and in 2011 it was reopened as the Red Bull Ring and again became the centre of Austrian motorsports.
