Barberá keen to continue Jerez form

Barberá keen to continue Jerez form

Despite the Andalusian circuit not being one of his personal favourites the Páginas Amarillas Aspar rider has a good record there in the smaller categories. This weekend he returns as a premier class rider.

Páginas Amarillas Aspar rider Héctor Barberá cannot wait to get started at his first home Grand Prix as a MotoGP rider. The rookie from Valencia is not a fan of the Jerez circuit layout but loves riding in front of the vociferous local support there.

Barberá already completed a few laps of Jerez on the Ducati at the back end of 2009 and even though the test was affected by rain he knows he has potential there, and will continue his quest for points after a positive start to his campaign in Qatar where he placed 12th.

"Racing in Spain is always a source of joy for me and I'm looking forward to this one even more after the postponement of the Japanese race,” said Barberá. “The season ends in Spain and is pretty much starting here too, which shows how important motorcycle racing is to this country and I'm sure the fans can't wait to get down for this one. I would like to have a little more experience under my belt before going to Jerez but it has worked out this way and I'll just give my best to put on a good race for the fans.”

Barberá, who finished on the podium at the circuit in the 125cc class in 2004, and has placed inside the top five on four occasions in the 250cc category, continued: “Jerez isn't one of my favourite circuits but I always seem to go well there and I think I can put in a good performance. We also have information from the test in the winter, which will be an advantage for us. Even though it rained back then I had a good feeling with the bike and I'm sure the experience will come in handy this weekend."
