Pramac d'Antin out for points in Catalunya

Pramac d'Antin arrive in Catalunya with the team aiming to get good results I front of their home fans and sponsors. Team Manager Luis d'Antin is well aware of the race's importance for the team.

"We're back in Spain, and this weekend will be very critical for everyone, with our race department being in Madrid," said d'Antin. "Racing at home increases our motivation, we also have a Spanish rider from Sevilla, and we will do our best working efficiently from the first practice sessions to obtain a good result in front of our public and our sponsors". Rider Alex Hofmann maintains the optimism but is well aware of the task ahead in Spain.

"Catalunya is a beautiful track, above all really fast and quite similar to Mugello as it has a very long straight. Generally I can say I like it. I'm confident fot this weekend. During the IRTA Test of this winter we had some difficulties, so we will have to work very hard to improve ourselves, but the whole team really wants to do well. Here in Spain I will try to do the best I can, as I always do." Home rider Jose Luis Cardoso is eager to put points on the board in Catalunya, having experienced a slow start to the season.

"I'm really enthusiastic and highly motivated, coming back to Spain where I would really like to obtain some points! The Catalunya track is one I know really well. I did some practice during the IRTA Test and this will definitely help us. I hope that we will have more luck than usual. For me it would be great to take my first points at this track, in front of my public at home".
