Top CRT still the agenda for Aspar Team in Assen

Top CRT still the agenda for Aspar Team in Assen

The Power Electronics Aspar Team head for Holland looking to continue their dominance of the new CRT machines, with Aleix Espargaró having finished as the fastest of the new breed machines in four of the opening six rounds so far.

With twenty points already to his name the Spaniard is increasing his feeling for the ART machine and looking forward to making further progress over the summer. Just nine points behind him lies his team-mate Randy de Puniet, who has found his best form in recent weeks after a luckless start to the campaign.

Aleix Espargaró

"I am really looking forward to going to Assen, one of my favourite circuits after Catalunya. I can't wait to get there and start having fun because last year we missed out a lot because of the rain. Hopefully we get good weather this time and are able to enjoy a positive weekend. Our objective is the same as every other Grand Prix, which is to work hard to improve the performance of the ART bike and be the fastest CRT rider again. Assen is a pretty long track with a slow section and a very fast section, with flowing corners, and I always enjoy riding there. I preferred the old circuit but the new one is a lot of fun too."

Randy de Puniet
"I love Assen, which is a pretty technical circuit. Even though it has undergone a lot of modifications over the years and is much shorter than it used to be it is still very interesting. There are no long straights so that should benefit us because we will be closer to the factory prototypes than at other circuits. At Silverstone we found a few things that should help us improve the bike and I am looking forward to trying them out here. I hope the weekend goes well and the weather is kind to us so that we can continue our recent run of good results."
