TEAM GO&FUN HONDA GRESINI SET TO SIGN OFF 2014 CAMPAIGN AT VALENCIA

Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini and the MotoGP circus will re-group at Valencia in Spain this weekend for the eighteenth and final race of 2014, which traditionally takes place at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.Fresh from an unlucky race at Sepang, where he was forced to retire after being hit by another rider after only two laps, Alvaro Bautista will try to finish a difficult season with a good result in front of his home crowd. In the last two years, the Spaniard has always entered in the top five in the season finale: fourth in 2012 and fifth in 2013.His teammate, Scott Redding, will try instead to defend the first position in the Championship among the riders aboard the Open Class Honda RCV1000R: the English rookie, who has 75 points thanks to 15 points finishes out of 17 races, can count on a 8 points advantage from Hiroshi Aoyama, his closest rival in the championship. ALVARO BAUTISTA “We head to Valencia after a long and really difficult season: of course we will try to end the year in the best possible way, even if there is not much to say, given the recent results. It seems that this is not our season, definitely! We struggled with a lot of problems and we also suffered bad luck in the last race at Sepang, with a crash on the second lap in which we were involved with no faults. Simply, we have to wait and see what will be the situation after the first free practice, then we will give our best, as always”. SCOTT REDDING “After the difficult conditions encountered in Malaysia is good to be back in Europe on a track where the weather situation should be definitely easy. Anyway, we expect another tough battle: we will try to confirm once again ourselves as that the best Open Class Honda, which would mean also keeping the first position in the Championship among the riders aboard the RCV1000R machine. This is our goal and it would be nice to end the season achieving it”.
