Largaron: Pedrosa excited about new Argentinean circuit

Dani Pedrosa admits he is keen to get out on-track at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina, which will be hosting a five-day test session next month (1st-5th July) ahead of its maiden MotoGP™ race event in 2014.

“I’m very keen to try it,” the Repsol Honda Team rider and current championship leader told Largaron. “I have seen aerial photos of the circuit and a bit of the layout and it seems to be a track that has its quick points. On the other hand, we shall have to wait and see how this year’s tests go.

“It’s interesting and we all have our eyes on it. Obviously the race is next year, but you always need to study these new circuits. I don’t know how many fans will be there but, having seen how the Dakar Rally has worked there over the past few years, I believe we can expect to have a great race in the country.”

Argentina last hosted a MotoGP™ race in 1999, at the Autodromo Oscar A. Galvez in Buenos Aires. The new Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo is located in the province of Santiago del Estero in the north of the country.
