In between the Australia and Malaysian Grands Prix the DRIVE M7 Aspar MotoGP™ team have visited their main sponsors and fans in Jakarta.

Arriving in the Indonesian capital on Monday and continuing the visit on Tuesday Nicky Hayden, Hiroshi Aoyama and Aspar Team Manager Jorge Martinez met with the team’s sponsors DRIVE M7 and attended various promotional events, photo shoots and media commitments. There were also appointments with Dainese and Arai in Indonesia.

Hayden said of the visit, “Last year I also had the opportunity to come to Jakarta and I was fascinated by the passion the fans have for bikes here. This year they have given us another warm welcome, it’s awesome. I want to thank both the fans and our main sponsor DRIVE M7 for all their support.”

Team manager Martinez stated, “It has been a pleasure for us to visit Jakarta with our main sponsor. It’s great to see the perfect working relationship which brings us together and although this season has been a bit complicated, next year we will continue to work as hard as ever to reward them for all the effort they are putting in.”

Aoyama added, “It’s the first time I’ve been to Indonesia and it has really impressed me. They have given us such a warm reception! It was great to have this experience with our main sponsor DRIVE M7.”
