After spending a day touring the Termas de Rio Hondo in Argentina, Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini rider Alvaro Bautista was ready on Thursday for a short test on the circuit that will soon become a part of the MotoGP World Championship calendar in 2014. The Spanish rider came to Argentina on Tuesday and spent his first day talking with the press in Buenos Aires, before heading to the Tucuman region and Termas de Rio Hondo. He enjoyed the chance to learn the layout of this technically demanding circuit and also enjoyed nice weather, dry and with temperatures around 20 C°.
Alvaro Bautista “This is the first time I have ever been to Argentina and it has been a wonderful experience so far. We were given a huge welcome by an extraordinary number of journalists in Buenos Aires and then on Wednesday we had a fantastic day being tourists at Termas de Rio Hondo. We went out on track today to get a first feel for a circuit that looks really nice and has some technically demanding sections. We spent a day studying the layout and on Friday we will work on adjusting the settings of the bike to suit it more.”
