Zarco: “I still have the same excitement"

Zarco: “I still have the same excitement'

The new Ajo Motorsport project in the Moto2™ World Championship debuts this weekend in Qatar with rider Johann Zarco on board a Kalex.

Despite their project being a mere five months old, Zarco and his team arrive at the first race of the year in top form. They set the fastest times at the first two tests in Valencia and Jerez, whilst last week in the second Jerez test, only rain and wind prevented a repeat result. Content with his Kalex in all conditions, the Frenchman is more optimistic than ever heading to a circuit where he has struggled to achieve great results in the past.

Johann Zarco:
"It will be my seventh time competing at the Losail circuit in Qatar, but I still have the same excitement about it as the first time. It's a fast circuit with a very long straight, and different to the Valencia and Jerez tracks where we undertook a good part of the preseason. The truth is that traditionally I have found it quite hard to do well at this track, because I was always a little stressed. Now my team and I are going there with a smile and confidence, so we will try to enjoy the moment. Racing at night makes it more special. I can’t wait to start the season."
