On the occasion of the Grand Prix de Catalunya, the home race for four-time World Champion Marc Márquez, Honda Racing Corporation is pleased to announce a contract extension with the 23-year-old Spanish rider that will see him continuing to race for the Repsol Honda Team for the next two years.
Marc is currently in his fourth season in the MotoGP class, always with the Repsol Honda Team.
