PETRONAS SPRINTA RACING RE-ENERGIZED AND RARING TO TACKLE LE MANS2018-05-14 07:29
Following a difficult weekend in Jerez, PETRONAS Sprinta Racing riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki are geared up and ready to tackle Le Mans with renewed determination.
Located 200km from Paris, the unique French circuit combines many first gear corners and fast straights. Its stop-and-go characteristics make late braking and hard acceleration performance crucial for a good set up.
#7 ADAM NORRODIN
“Le Mans is a great track; I have good confidence there. This year I feel a lot stronger both in myself and with the bike, which is working well. At Le Mans you need to be really strong on the brakes, which is something I feel very confident with on this bike, so I’m really looking forward to this GP.
Since Jerez I have been training very hard in Spain; we have been riding a lot, so hopefully I can step up my game and improve my results a lot more this weekend. I want to take back points in Le Mans, this is the number one priority; push hard and finish strong.”
#71 AYUMU SASAKI
“I’m very excited to get back on track this weekend. I like the track at Le Mans, I just hope that the weather stays nice for us, because in the wet it can be a bit tricky.
My aim for Le Mans is to focus every single lap during the weekend and really work hard to improve my performance. I have to believe more in myself and do better; I must push harder and never give up. Every session I must improve. I have to work harder than ever before during qualifying and really push to start the race in a good position. Then on Sunday I have to fight throughout the whole race.”
