Redding: “Assen is one of my favourite circuits”

Redding: “Assen is one of my favourite circuits”

Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Scott Redding is looking to fight for the top ten again after successful Catalan GP.

Fresh off his best MotoGP™ result of the season, Scott Redding heads to the Motul TT Assen, a favourite track of the Brit, with high hopes and clear aims. Redding is hoping to battle with the second group over race distance as he continues to adapt to the factory Honda machine.

The one-day test after the Catalan GP was beneficial despite the rain for Redding, able to improve his feeling in the wet. Redding has achieved two podiums at the Dutch track back in his Moto2™ days where the Brit was third in 2012 and second in 2013 when he battled for the title. 

Scott Redding: “Barcelona was one of my best races of the season so far and we need to build on that this weekend. Assen is one of my favourite circuits; it’s quite fast and flowing with only a couple of tight corners, which should suit our bike better. The aim is to start the weekend strong and then, in the race, try to hold onto the second group for a bit longer. Last week we were complaining about limited track time after a thunderstorm disrupted the Barcelona test, but my feeling with the bike was good in the wet and that could be important this weekend at Assen, where the possibility of rain is always high.”
