VIPPA-BCN today had the pleasure of attending the presentation of the next Moto GP award to be held next weekend (June 15-17) at the Circuit de Catalunya.
The event took place today, June 13, 2018, at the Miramar Hotel in Barcelona at 11:00 am.
The event was opened by the President of the Circuit de Catalunya, who asked to all to observe a minute’s silence in memory of the 14 year-old Andreas Pérez, death last weekend. We at VIPPA-BCN are sorry for the loss and would like to send our condolences to his family.
For this edition, the circuit has a new layout so the options to surprise are greater and competitiveness is assured. Safety has also been improved by asphalting some stretches. And beyond the track we will find an authentic festival for all audiences with proposals to enjoy the facilities. Tribute to Angel Nieto and Luis Salom, the Monster Party, photocall, surfing machine simulators, custom-made podiums, Monster World Championship pilots to sign autographs, electronic music DJ’s, batucades, castellers, the Family Village, visit to the pit-lane and access for fans to experience the celebration first hand, among many other things.
Participants of Moto GP, Moto 2 and 3 have come to the event and, between anecdotes, they have told us how they face the competition. All of them have agreed on the same thing: “We’ll go out to win and if we don’t win we’ll score points to climb positions. But the main idea is to win. They told us about their new team-mates and they all agreed again that “the stronger and better your team-mate is, the more it helps you to overcome and improve” and although Marc Márquez had asked for a strong signing, now he thinks that maybe he didn’t expect so much, Jorge Lorenzo will accompany him.
We were also joined by the newly released and excited father and uncle, Aleix and Pol Espargaró, who have also made their debut with twins. And Alex Marquez, whose exhibition has not lost any detail of his brother with his mobile phone. By the way, Marc Marquez, when asked if he was willing to follow in the footsteps of his colleague Aleix, replied with laughter: “It seems that I’m going the other way”.
