About the
Assen TT Circuit

We are proud to call the Assen round our home GP, as it is the only track that has hosted a Grand Prix ever since it was created back in 1949. A lot has been said about the track changing over time, but even in its current form, it has hosted numerous nail-biting races, with last year’s GP being the most recent example. From the tight Strubben corner, to the flowing back part of the track, all the way to the race-deciding GT chicane, Assen has all the ingredients for exciting races.

With three consecutive podiums, including his incredible first win at Mugello, Danilo comes to Assen carrying the right momentum. At a track he calls “my second home,” he looks to make things right after a crash in 2018, and being denied the win in 2017. Better warm up that edge of your seat!

About this page

“I'm very happy with the podium in Barcelona. For sure, without the incident during the second lap it would have been harder to seize this result and I'm very sorry for Andrea, who lost a great chance to shine. I tried to stay with Márquez but it wasn't possible, and Rins and Quartararo were also very fast. With Alex, we passed each other many times and once he even hit me on the right side, but I was able to reclaim the position quite quickly.

Then, when Fabio passed me, I just tried to stay with him and pull away from the pack. We scored the best possible result today. After three podiums in a row, we're close to third position in the championship: we need to keep the momentum going here in Assen, where I had great races in the past.”

Local hero, Bo Bendsneyder, looks to bounce back at Assen after being denied a solid result in Barcelona despite going through Q2 with a lot of promise. With several wins in the Red Bull Rookies class under his belt, he knows what it’s like to get the Assen crowd on its feet, and he is determined to offer the crowd a great show.

Teammate, Steven Odendaal, is looking to bring another solid result home for the also Dutch RW Racing GP team, which is based around the corner from the TT track.

Barcelona pole-man Augusto Fernandez just missed out on the podium last time around, but he certainly shows he has the pace to run at the front.

About this page

“I finished the weekend in Barcelona with a bittersweet taste, as after the pole, we had opportunities. Then, during the race, we had some problems. Still, I am happy because despite this, we continued to score points.

I am happy for the weekend overall and for the pole. We will continue working and, here in Holland, we will look for more. As always, thanks to everyone for your support.”

About this page

“I am very disappointed with the result. It is very strange, because we had the same setup that worked so well on Saturday, but I had a hard time keeping the bike on track coming out of the corners. The tire spun a lot more than yesterday and therefore I was short of three-tenths per lap to be able to fight for points. Really a shame, because the team worked incredibly hard.

I would have liked to pay back those efforts with a good result. We have made a good step with regards to qualification this weekend and that is positive. We tested on Tuesday in Barcelona and we found some positive points that will help us here in Assen. As always, I am looking forward to racing in front of my home crowd!”

“The start was good, but the race wasn’t. I had hoped for a better result, but it was not possible, unfortunately.

I’m really sorry for the team that works so hard, and I am determined to be better here in Assen. It’s the team’s home GP and this is always a special race.”

You win some, you lose some, and this definitely proved to be true in Barcelona. Just one race after celebrating a double podium with Lorenzo and Jaume, both riders didn’t finish the race due to different circumstances. Taking the positives with them from Barcelona, both riders are ready to rumble at the Cathedral of Speed.

“It has been so difficult to reach the front group and I am disappointed for what has happened, but this is the way it goes in Moto3.

At least, I am glad because I know I can go fast and I have the pace to run at the front. I’m ready to get back to the front here in Assen!”

About this page

“I was very disappointed after Barcelona; I was leading the race and then I had to retire due to an issue. It turned out to be an electrical problem. I’m not sure what it was exactly but it stopped the power and there was nothing I could to other than get back to the box. However, this is racing.

I am completely focused on Assen now. I think we can do a great job here because the bike is amazing and our base setup is really good. I am aiming to get into the rhythm quickly and then focus on the race.”
