Bautista aiming for enjoyment on 250cc debut

Bautista aiming for enjoyment on 250cc debut

With his debut race in 250cc rapidly approaching, Alvaro Bautista is certainly up for the challenge.

With his debut race in 250cc rapidly approaching, Alvaro Bautista is certainly up for the challenge. The reigning 125cc World Champion has taken to the quarter litre category like a fish to water, placing highly at a number of preseason tests on the Aspar Aprilia. At a pre-event sampling of Qatari culture yesterday, the Spaniard spoke to motogp.com about his feelings ahead of his maiden 250cc outing.

"I'm excited about the year I have ahead of me. It's new ground for me, but I think that we can do well. In previous tests at Qatar the bike has gone very fast, but despite this I'm not thinking too much about positions or goals. I just want to enjoy this first year in the class," commented Bautista, who was fourth at this morning's first free practice session.
