Elías looking for further improvements

Elías looking for further improvements

The fifth round of the season takes place this weekend at the Montmeló track with LCR Honda rider Toni Elías excited to race in front of family and friends.

The 28 year-old from Manresa admits his success in the premier class has been limited at his home track, but the Spaniard is looking for further improvements to solve the rear traction problems he has been having with his RC212V at the upcoming race. After struggling for several races, Elías and the team made some new adjustments that helped him score points in the last three rounds. The reigning Moto2 Champion is determined to continue with his set up work despite the positive pressure of racing at his home race. Thanks to support from Honda, Elias will be back on track equipped with the new 2011 chassis.

Toni Elias:
“Honestly, my situation is not the one I was expecting for my home race, but I am not worried about that. I do not feel the pressure; I just want to continue my progression trying to fix the bike step by step. In the last 3 rounds we have found some small improvements but the overall package is not perfect yet, so we will continue our set up work to take a step further on my home soil. I want to thank Honda for their support so far and for the new 2011 chassis they gave us for this weekend. I will do my best to obtain the best result for me, the team and my fans.”
