Team HRC head to Thailand for MXGP spectacular

160304_102

Coming straight after the season-opening MXGP of Qatar, round two of the 2016 MXGP season takes Team HRC to Thailand and to the new venue of Suphan Buri and the SuphanBuri Motosport Land.

This promises to be a Grand Prix with a difference, featuring a week of festivities and celebrations headlined by Sunday’s racing. The SuphanBuri Rock Concert runs all week at he dedicated 55-acre venue, whilst from Friday the on-track action is supported by flat track races, a carnival and the ThaiMXGP Fair.

Suphan Buri lies to the north west of Bangkok, and the new track is sculpted in a way similar to the Sri Racha track last used in 2014, just without the stones in the top soil. It’s also set to be a permanent venue, and be open all year long for local and national races.

One thing that will remain the same however is the weather – with the temperature soaring to 37 degrees Celsius and with humidity approaching 50 per cent, endurance and fitness will be tested to the extreme and hydration will never be far from any rider’s mind.

Last year Gautier Paulin took third in qualifying on the CRF450RW, whilst the year before he took a fourth in race one at Sri Racha. That same year, the Team HRC pairing crossed the line in fourth and fifth in race two.
