Kent: “I’m ready to get back on my Honda"

Kent: “I’m ready to get back on my Honda'

Moto3™ World Championship leader Danny Kent has set his sights on helping Honda to achieve a new record at the Indianapolis GP.

The 22 year old rider spent the summer break in Australia with CWM LCR Honda’s Jack Miller, but is now raring to go again. Kent holds a 66-point lead in the Moto3™ standings and is hoping to become Britain’s first World Champion since Barry Sheene in 1977.

For the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix Kent has set his sights on playing his part in helping Honda to celebrate their 700th victory in Grand Prix history this weekend.

Danny Kent: “So for the three weeks off I went to Australia to have a small break and to train with my buddy Jack (Miller). I had a great time there, but now I’m ready to get back on my Honda and start racing again. Even if it was a long trip from Australia straight to Indianapolis earlier this week, it was also a great experience for me. The first half of the season has gone amazingly, we’ve worked hard from the very beginning of our project and the result is shown by our 66-point lead. So now we just have to be clever and just try to maintain a good lead for the remainder of the season. The plan for me, as always, is to try and win the race each Sunday and to be as strong during the second half of the year as I was before the break, if not stronger, because my favourite circuits are still to come. But I actually like the Indianapolis layout as well. This weekend Honda can get their 700th Grand Prix win and I would love to be the rider to help to achieve that!”
