Repsol Honda Team’s Jorge Lorenzo is raring to go at his home round of the MotoGP™ World Championship, the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya, this weekend after having a “very interesting” visit to HRC’s headquarters in Asaka, Japan.
In a social media post, Lorenzo described the days in Japan as “intensive and productive” as he looks to bounce back from a challenging start to life with Honda at his home Grand Prix.
“After a mixed weekend in Mugello, I am hoping that we can do good work this weekend in Barcelona,” said the six-time Catalan GP winner. “We will keep working at our maximum to close the gap to the front. We also have a test after the race, which I am looking forward to as well."
Lorenzo was joined at the HRC headquarters by test rider Stefan Bradl, who is helping aid the development process of the RC213V, as the five-time World Champion continues to adapt during his first year with the Repsol Honda squad.
“I had a very interesting trip to Japan and we were able to work on many things, some which will help this weekend and some for the future.”
