After celebrating another double podium finish at Misano, their eighth of the 2013 campaign, Repsol Honda Team's Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa are on their way to Round 14 at Spain's MotorLand Aragon.
Both Marquez and Pedrosa have celebrated podiums in Aragon, the latter having won last year after taking second place finishes in 2010 and 2011. The former was taken out on the first lap of the 2010 125 race, but came back in 2011 to win in Moto2™ and then take second place a year later.
"It will be nice to return home to race in front of our home fans in Aragon this weekend! The track - which is one of my favourites, has technical first and final sections, and you need to be strong in cornering. We've had good results there in the past two years so I hope to continue this way and we've also been testing there already this year on the MotoGP machine, so we have some data. After the race in Misano, we had a good test on the Monday and definitely found some positive settings, so I'm looking forward to trying them out this weekend in Aragon!"
"I've always done well in Aragon and I'm looking forward to racing in front of our home crowd again, the support is always great and gives you motivation! We had a test on Monday after Misano and found some positive things that I hope will help us here in Motorland, especially in corner exit. We'll have to wait and see."
