With the Motorland Aragón facility hosting rounds 4 and 5 as a ‘doubleheader’, Team HRC remains on site at the Spanish track in preparation for this weekend’s Superbike world championship event.
The fourth round of the championship, which concluded just two days ago, saw factory rider Alvaro Bautista achieve his first podium of the season aboard his CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. Bautista rode brilliantly from fourth on the grid to cross the line third in the second Superbike race and took a positive fourth place in the 10-lap sprint race.
Leon Haslam scored a best result of seventh (in race 2), also taking steps forward throughout the sessions despite a few small setbacks along the way. Both riders feel positive ahead of the second of these back-to-back rounds.
The MotorLand Aragon road racing circuit was opened in 2009 and in 2011 it became the fifth Spanish track to host the WorldSBK™ Championship. MotorLand Aragón Ctra. TE- V- 7033 KM. 1. 44600 Alcañiz (Teruel) – Spain motorlandaragon.com
