Taka confident as MotoGP Roadshow remains in Spielberg
LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami is looking to build on last week’s impressive result when the MotoGP class return to Spielberg for the second of back-to-back races in Austria. Having demonstrated his pace at the Reb Bull Ring both this year and last, the Japanese star is now targeting his first premier class podium.
Having topped FP1, Taka eventually claimed a creditable fifth place finish in the Styrian GP as he finished as the leading Honda bike. He will now look to eclipse that display in this weekend’s Grand Prix of Austria and heads into the event full of confidence.
“Now we have another race weekend, with back-to-back races here in Austria. After last Sunday’s race I am really looking forward to racing again this weekend. Definitely our target from now on is our first podium, so let’s do it!” – Takaaki Nakagami
