Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa are en route to Aragon after a difficult weekend in Misano where Dani took a well earned 3rd but Championship leader, Marc, crashed on lap ten but was able to rejoin the race and finish fifteenth.

Motorland Aragón is round fourteen of the 2014 season. The ultra-modern 5.077km track is comprised of 17 turns – ten left and seven right, and a long straight of 968m. The first Grand Prix was hosted in 2010, and was rewarded with the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award, the first time a circuit had received the prize in its debut year.

Both Marc and Dani have celebrated highs and lows in Aragón, Marc was taken out on the first lap in 2010 in 125cc, but came back in 2011 on the Moto2 machine to win the race, took second place in 2011 and won in MotoGP last year. Dani finished 2nd here in his first two outings and then won in 2012, but an unfortunate clash with teammate Marc last year saw his first DNF at a track where he has always been strong.

Marc Marquez

"After a disappointing weekend in Italy, it will be nice to return home to race in front of our home fans in Aragón this weekend and also my fan club will be coming! This is my favourite track of the year and we’ve had good results here in the past three years so I hope to continue this way. It has technical first and final sections, and you need to be strong in cornering, but we will be working hard from Friday to be back on top on Sunday!"

Dani Pedrosa

"Last year obviously wasn’t the best for me, but apart from that I've always done well in Aragón and I'm looking forward to racing in front of our home crowd again, the support is always great and gives you motivation! Obviously Marc has a huge lead in the Championship but there is only a single point between me and Valentino, so my priority is to win races and open that margin to take second in the standings."

Location Information

An ultra-modern facility, MotorLand Aragón had its roots firmly established thanks to a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003. Safety advice warning against the continuation of this led to the proposal and construction of a sporting complex dedicated to motorsport. With support… read more.
