    Statement from the MotoGP Race Direction

    The Race Direction will call Italian rider Marco Simoncelli during the Gran Premio Aperol de Catalunya this week, to further discuss the incident during the MotoGP race at the French Grand Prix in Le Mans.

    The Monster Energy Grand Prix de France at Le Mans produced a thrilling race, but also included an incident which added controversy to proceedings at Round 4 of the 2011 MotoGP World Championship.

    An overtaking manoeuvre from Marco Simoncelli on Dani Pedrosa at the Chemin aux boeufs corner resulted in a crash for the Repsol Honda rider, and he was later diagnosed with a broken right collarbone. Simoncelli was penalised for the incident with a ride through penalty, and ended the race in fifth position.

    If someone want's half, they can call dibs and give me $4 8)

    Lorenzo and Spies Eager for Barcelona

    The Yamaha Factory Racing riders are more than
    motivated for Round 5 this weekend, as they gear up for the
    Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya.

    [​IMG]

    The MotoGP paddock heads to Barcelona this week for the Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya at the Montmeló circuit in Spain. Round 5 of the 2011 Championship, the second on Spanish soil this season, sees 2010 World Champion Jorge Lorenzo ready and prepared to defend his Championship lead in front of his home Catalan crowd. His last visit to the circuit proved a victorious one in 2010 with a decisive victory taken from pole. The Mallorcan born rider saw his points tally extended to 78 two weeks ago during an incident packed fourth round in France, he now leads closest rival Casey Stoner by 12 points.

    Ben Spies ended his recent run of misfortune with a solid performance at the last race in Le Mans. After two DNFs in the previous rounds the Yamaha Factory newcomer made good use of the French round to rebuild his confidence, holding off fellow American Nicky Hayden for a sixth place finish and valuable Championship points. Spies arrives in Barcelona in 12th position with 20 Championship points, just two points adrift of Marco Simoncelli in eighth place.

    Jorge Lorenzo:
    "We are now going straight to Montmeló and we don't even need to take a plane. It is amazing! I am so happy to be here, the closest track to my home. I remember last year's victory and also those in my 250cc days. This is a fast track with high speed and slow corners. It is the second race in Spain and I would like to be as fit as in Jerez. I know it's going to be tough; we need to improve a lot because our competitors are very strong and my finger is still recovering from the Le Mans warm up crash. Our aim in this GP will be the podium. We should be focused from Friday on, and I am quite confident that the team is ready to fight, as usual."

    Ben Spies:
    “I think I’m looking forward to this race more than any so far this year! This is definitely a circuit I like to ride a lot more than the previous four. After a difficult start with some unlucky results we put in a solid ride at Le Mans, considering the pace of some of our competitors I was happy to finish where we did and get some points under my belt. As always we’re ready to give it 100% this weekend and will be looking again to build on the last round and hopefully move up a couple of places in the Championship standings come Sunday.”

    Wilco Zeelenberg, Team Manager:
    “I’m quite happy to go to Barcelona as there will be a fantastic atmosphere there after they won the Champions League! It’s also a special race for Jorge as it’s his home race. We’ve been missing a little bit of pace so it’s a good moment to make a strong statement for the first of these back to back races to see if we can make a difference here.”

    Massimo Meregalli, Team Director:
    “We have been looking forward to this weekend to get back to the action and show what we are capable of. This is Jorge’s home track so the expectations are high and his results here have been good for the last couple of years. Ben really likes this circuit and he’s got his confidence back following a difficult start to the year. The team are in confident mood and we are impatient for Friday morning to get started on track.”
