The MotoGP caravan is heading to TT Circuit Essen on Sunday (June 26) to host the 11th round of the 2022 FIM MotoGP World Championships.
Cathedral motorcycles have been the mainstay of Grand Prix racing since the world’s first motorsport championship began in 1949.
Dutch GP: History meets modernity in cathedrals
Recent results suggest that Quartaro (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and Zarco (Prima Primac Racing) will be hard to beat in this weekend’s Motul TT Essen.
Quartaro won and Zarco finished second in Sachsering a few days ago and is now first and third in the 2022 FIM MotoGP World Championship standings, respectively.
Summer vacation may not start until this weekend, but with 10 rounds completed this year and 10 more to come, we’ve almost dropped the 2022 FIM MotoGP World Championship season.
It’s a similar story for Quartaro and Zarco, who have been slowly but surely coming together since returning to Europe for the Portuguese Grand Prix.
Before the free practice session, two French people talked about the weather so far in the cathedral and the upcoming weekend.
Rain is forecast in Essen on Friday, before the weather improves on Saturday and Sunday, as shown by Zarco.
Of course, the risk of more rain on race day will remain, which will create uncertainty for riders and teams, but Quartaro is eager to enjoy all that Essen has to offer in the drought.
Quartaro: “I think I’ve improved my ride on the wet road a lot, but when you go on a track like Essen, you want a dry track, because for me it’s a track you’re likely to enjoy.” Like the legendary track on the calendar, so we expect a dry race. “
The strangest thing in recent times is the progress of Zarko. In the last four races, he has finished fifth, then fourth, then third and second. Do they think this pattern could continue this Sunday as the two-time Moto2 World Champion won his first MotoGP race?
Zarco: “It’s easier said than done, but why not? It would be better to follow this logic. I think the tough weather we have this weekend will help me save some energy physically. Because of the rain tires, I enjoy the bike because you have a bike It takes less strength to get to the corner, so it’s very difficult for me to follow that logic. Let’s see. “
The stage is set for another exciting round of MotoGP at TT Circuit Essen. Make sure you catch FP1 for Premier Class on Friday at 9:55 a.m. local time (1.25am IST).
The race is on Sunday at 2 pm local time (5:30 pm Indian time). Let it be It’s time for the bride in the cathedral!
