Off to Down-Under to one of the most spectacular tracks of the year

Dynavolt Intact GP riders Marcel Schrötter and Xavi Vierge have travelled from Japan to Australia to start their next attack at the Phillip Island circuit this weekend.

Phillip Island on Australia's rough south coast is not only home to penguins, kangaroos and koala bears; it is also a mecca for wave surfers. In October, however, when spring starts in Australia, thousands of motorsport enthusiasts come to the small island south of Melbourne to experience the third last race of the 2018 MotoGP season.

For the Dynavolt Intact GP duo Marcel Schrötter and Xavi Vierge, the race weekend on the 4.4-kilometre circuit is also an impressive experience every time they head for the steep coast at high speed. Wind and changeable weather pose another challenge. Nevertheless, the Phillip Island Circuit has favourite status for both Kalex riders.

Marcel Schrötter hopes to repeat last year's first row in Australia. Not 100% happy with the tenth place of Japan, the 25-year-old wants to be a clear front-runner this week on race Sunday.

Xavi Vierge also wants to return to the top group after having struggled in practice last weekend to develop an optimal feeling, but then managed a solid seventh place in the race.
