About
Circuit de Barcelona

Close to the beautiful city of Barcelona, the Montmeló-based track has an almost totally balanced mix of left/right corners with 6 to 8. Long straights and flowing sections give the track a quick nature, but will also favor some of the underdogs. With a straight of over a kilometer long, the Barcelona track also allows MotoGP bikes to stretch their legs while the smaller classes will be looking for the best slipstream.

We haven’t even stopped celebrating and yet we arrive at the next track. What can we say? Our first-ever MotoGP win is behind us and we can’t think of a rider who has deserved his first win more than Danilo. History rarely repeats, but looking at last year, the Ducati win at Mugello was repeated at… Barcelona.

MUGELLO RESULT: P1
CHAMPIONSHIP POSITION: P4

About this page

“I really wanted this victory. When I realized the pace at the front wasn't too fierce, and I was able to manage my rhythm in the leading group, I told myself it was the right time to go for it. I tried to control the race by staying in the lead to avoid the risk of losing too many positions in the battle, dictating the pace to preserve the energies and the tires for the final rush.

I was a bit worried about the slipstream as we entered the final lap, but I managed to brake really deep and find a small gap between Andrea and Marc to retake the lead, then I simply pushed as hard as I could until the checkered flag. A good chunk of this win came thanks to Andrea, who took me under his wing this winter and gave so many precious tips. Now, we'll keep fighting together for the championship, and the fight starts here in Barcelona where last year Ducati also did great.”

Augusto fought his way back to fifth in Mugello, another solid result after a difficult weekend. Fellow REV’IT! Riders and Moto2 classmates, Bo Bendsneyder and Steven Odendaal, had less fortune, but are both ready to bounce back at the Catalan track to bring their NTS machinery closer to the frontrunners.

About this page

“I'm happy with the 5th position. It had been a difficult weekend and the final result is good for the Championship; we're still adding points. I lost positions at the beginning, I struggled to take the bike feeling.

It was a very hard race and I thought about continuing adding points. Thank you very much to the team for the work done, now it’s time to put in another solid result in Barcelona!”

NTS RW RACING GP

MUGELLO RESULT: P19 
CHAMPIONSHIP POSITION: P21 

About this page

“The start was finally good. I think I was in sixteenth or seventeenth, but when I made the second turn I was just on the wrong side and I had to go straight to avoid a crash. I was lucky not to get knocked down.

It was difficult to catch up because I was short of speed on the straight. Once I was in front, I was able to increase the pace, but of course, I am very dissatisfied with this result; time to get closer to the front this weekend!”

STEVENODENDAAL

NTS RW RACING GP

MUGELLO RESULT: P22 
CHAMPIONSHIP POSITION: P32 

About this page

“It was a terribly bad weekend and the worst part is that I don’t know what the problem is. I am very sorry for NTS and for the team, because this is not what they deserve.

This machine should be in the points and even more, so that’s the focus for Barcelona.”

In Mugello, both boys were back on the box, and Lorenzo almost had his home crowd in tears as he led most of the race only to lose out on victory on the run down the straight. Still, getting closer to P1 in the championship, the end to Mugello was a positive one, as it was for Jaume who charged through the field on his way to third. Both riders will line up with victory in mind, with Jaume having the home-turf energy boost that sometimes makes magic happen for riders.

I want to thank the team, my family, my friends, and all my fans: a unique emotion. Now, let’s see if my credit is valid in Barcelona, haha.”
