Isidre Esteve and Xevi Pons, two of Spain's top racing stars, were present at the Circuit de Catalunya today to check out some of the two-wheel action of the MotoGP paddock. The raid and rally drivers made the most of their time at the track, shooting the breeze with fellow countryman Toni Elias in the Fortuna Honda box.

Pons, the Citroen driver currently in seventh place in the WRC, paid tribute to Elias' skills. The riders occasionally bump into each other whilst in training at the gym.

"I think that he's doing well, he also has a great bike and the combination is sure to bring success."

Rally regular Esteve added that the two had "enjoyed a small break in our calendars to come to Barcelona and watch an always exciting Grand Prix. We have known the riders for a long time. This year all eyes are on MotoGP after the spectacular opening races and even playing field." In the attached video you can enjoy some exclusive video footage and quotes from the two drivers.
