Hanika: “You can get a lot of grip”

Hanika: “You can get a lot of grip”

Karel Hanika is looking to make up for the previous four races where the Czech rider has failed to finish in the points after a strong start

In 2013 Hanika claimed a double victory in Assen on his way to the Red Bull Rookies Cup title, now with the Red Bull KTM Ajo squad Hanika is looking to rely on this experience for another strong showing. Since his seventh place in Argentina Hanika has struggled to score points, not helped by various crashes and a pit lane start in Le Mans.

Karel Hanika: "It's my favourite track. I've raced there so many times and normally I enjoy it a lot. I hope we can do as well as last year, because we were in the front group and only a mistake at the end meant we didn't finish the race. We can definitely be really strong there. It's a special circuit. It’s very flat with banked corners where you can get a lot of grip. There are also very fast corners you can take in sixth gear, so I really like this track. I think we can get good results like I did in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, where I won a couple of races."
