Monday, 1 July 2013

MotoGP™ will be spending this week in Argentina as a selection of riders get their first taste of the pristine Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo. Following a press conference on Tuesday, a two-day test will take place on Thursday and Friday.

The sport last raced in Argentina in 1999, as Kenny Roberts Jr. raced to victory in Buenos Aires. It is the capital that will play host venue to Tuesday’s press conference as the likes of Cal Crutchlow, Stefan Bradl, Alvaro Bautista and Hector Barbera gather, also joined by representatives behind the all-new Argentinian race event which is being planned to join the calendar from 2014.

Testing at the race track - located on the outskirts of Termas de Rio Hondo, 1,100 kilometres north-west of Buenos Aires - will take place between 10am and 5pm local time (GMT -3), with a one-hour break, on both Thursday and Friday. The outing will allow the aforementioned riders, as well as Moto2™’s Tito Rabat and Nico Terol, to get to grips with the clockwise, 14-turn 4.8km layout.

Extensive coverage of all of the happenings, including video updates and live timing direct from the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo, will be available on motogp.com.
