Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) begins the second half of the season only 26 points off the Championship lead held by teammate Marc Marquez, and the first venue for the grid to attack makes positive reading for Pedrosa. One of his favourite circuits, the Automotodrom Brno has seen him take two wins in the premier class, as well as a 125cc win, a victory in the 250 World Championship and a number of further rostrum finishes.
Director's Cut: Pedrosa-Lorenzo Last Lap Battle at Brno
2012 saw the ‘Baby Samurai’ battle Jorge Lorenzo in a duel to the finish, taking an impressive win on the last lap, and 2014 saw Pedrosa become the man to end Marquez’ winning streak with victory in the Czech GP. Having already taken a win, several podiums and a good haul of points in 2017, those good memories are a good omen as Pedrosa chases another top result to kickstart the second half of the season – as is a positive test at Brno during the summer break:
Dani Pedrosa: “We’ve had four weeks without racing but not entirely without action as we had a positive test in Brno in mid-July which was very useful for working on the setup of our bike. The weather was good and we could fully exploit both days. I’ve been training in anticipation for second half of the season but I also had time for some holidays, which was good to disconnect a bit and recharge the batteries. Now I’m looking forward to jumping on my bike again at Brno, which is one of my favourite tracks on the calendar. I have some very good memories there and together with my team I’ll do my utmost to get another good result next Sunday.”
