Premiere in Thailand for Vierge & Schrötter

This week the Dynavolt Intact GP Team and its riders Xavi Vierge and Marcel Schrötter enter new territory. The Chang International Circuit will host a MotoGP Grand Prix for the first time and will be the first station of four overseas races over the next five weeks.

An intense and exciting final phase of the 2018 season will begin this weekend in Thailand. The Chang International Circuit is located in the Thai city of Buriram, about five hours’ drive or one hour flight northeast of Bangkok.

The 4.6-kilometre course, where the World Superbike Championship is already a regular guest, was designed by German track developer Hermann Tilke and represents a new exciting challenge for Marcel Schrötter and Xavi Vierge. The two Dynavolt Intact GP riders are looking forward to it and are highly motivated to catch up at the overseas races in the World Championship rankings.

Marcel Schrötter currently follows, after his fifth place in Aragon, on the seventh position only 26 points behind the World Championship top-3. Xavi Vierge overcame his crash from Spain two weeks ago and travels ambitiously to Thailand as tenth in the overall standings.

The MotoGP circus will not return to Europe before the final race in Valencia in November. The riders and teams have four races ahead of them in Asia. After Thailand and a week's break, they will be heading for Japan, Australia and Malaysia.
