Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa are looking forward to their home GP in Catalunya on Sunday. The race follows a positive showing two weeks ago in Mugello, where both riders had a strong race pace and fought hard for a victory and a podium position, respectively.

The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is located in the hills just 12 kilometres north of Barcelona. Its 4.7km track features a blend of eight right-hand turns and five lefts, and both riders can claim strong records there. Marquez won the 125cc race in 2010, in Moto2 he finished second in 2011 and third in 2012, and in MotoGP he took the final podium position in the 2013 race and won in 2014. Last year Marc crashed out of the race from second place on lap 3.

Dani has been victorious in all classes in Catalunya, winning the 125cc race in 2003, the 250cc GP in 2005 and the MotoGP race in 2008. He has earned six additional podium finishes in the MotoGP class, including each of the last five years, with last year’s third place being his first podium of 2015 following a tough start to the season due to a surgery.

After Sunday’s GP, the team will remain in Montmeló for a one-day test on Monday.
