Marc Marquez has won the last 8 races in American soil, winning on four occasions in Indy (2011 and 2012 in Moto2, 2013 and 2014 in MotoGP).
After a two-week summer holiday since the Misano Test, Marc Marquez is en route to the famous Brickyard for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, where he will be hoping to repeat his victory in Sachsenring before the break.
After 9 races, Marc Marquez is standing in fourth place with 114 points, 65 behind leader Valentino Rossi. A good result in USA would confirm his options to fight for the Championship.
Marc Marquez: “It’s been great to have some time off to recuperate and recharge the batteries ready for the second half of the season. After the Misano test I went to Ibiza with some friends for a week which was fantastic, and much needed! Then we resumed our training schedule in order to prepare for the coming races. Now we are on our way to America for the Indianapolis GP. I love racing on American soil and appreciate the enthusiasm of all the fans. I like the Indy track it can be tricky with the changes in asphalt but as always we will work hard from Friday, and get back into our rhythm as quickly as possible!”
