Refreshed Yamaha Factory Racing Ready for Brno GP

A well deserved mid-season two week break is nearly over and Yamaha Factory Racing is preparing to continue the 2011 MotoGP battle at Brno this weekend for the Grand Prix of Czech Republic.

Having spent his break relaxing in the Dominican Republic, defending World Champion Jorge Lorenzo is fighting fit and ready to continue his battle with Championship leader Casey Stoner for the title. The Mallorcan has four wins at the Brno circuit, one in 125cc, two in 250cc and a textbook maiden Brno MotoGP victory last year on his way to Championship victory. With eight races remaining on the calendar and a points deficit of just 20 to the lead, Lorenz has everything to fight for this weekend.

Ben Spies arrives at Brno this weekend fresh from time out in his home state of Texas, looking to improve on his impressive performance at the Czech circuit last year. The American has one World Superbike victory at Brno under his belt and was denied his maiden pole in his rookie MotoGP appearance last year by just 0.338 seconds from Dani Pedrosa. An impressive race run saw him finish just off the podium in fourth.

This year’s race will mark the 42nd World Championship race on the Brno circuit, having first appeared on the calendar in 1965 as a road circuit. Now a fully closed track, the circuit is a favourite with many riders for its dramatic elevation changes and the fast close racing it generates.

Following the Brno race weekend Yamaha Factory Racing will remain at the circuit for a one-day 1000cc test in preparation for the 2012 Championship.
