Laverty: “I’m excited about the challenge”

Laverty: “I’m excited about the challenge”

The Aspar MotoGP Team rookie Eugene Laverty looks ahead to the first round of the season in Qatar.

Eugene Laverty will contest his rookie campaign in the premier class, having last competed in the smaller Grand Prix categories back in 2007 and 2008. Now a WSS and WorldSBK race winner, this time the Irishman is here to stay and he is determined to demonstrate his potential from the opening round aboard the new 'Open' Honda.

Eugene Laverty:
“Preseason testing has gone really well as we’ve made steady progress every time that I’ve ridden the bike. I’ve gelled really well with both the 'Open' Honda and the Aspar MotoGP Team so I’m excited about the challenge that lies ahead of us. The final test at Losail finished really well, which bodes well for round one at the same circuit. It is difficult to say what my goal is in terms of overall position because the field is so strong this season. However, within the 'Open' category I want to be fighting for the top three positions from the beginning. I enjoy the Losail circuit and our bike suits the circuit very well so I want to start the season with a strong result.”
