BIC track gets a thumbs up from the riders ahead of the exhilarating IndianOil Grand Prix of India
A Curious Interest
As the practice session looms on the horizon, riders are buzzing with anticipation. Many find the BIC track intriguing, with its unique layout setting it apart from other circuits. Defending champion Francesco Bagnaia of the Ducati Lenovo Team expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “I think the layout of the track is interesting. It’s nice and different compared to a lot of other tracks. So, I think it would be great.”
Exploring Every Angle
Jorge Martin of Prima Primac Racing, fresh off his victory at the San Marino Grand Prix, left no stone unturned in his quest to understand the track. He took a bus and even rode a bicycle on the track to get a feel for it. His verdict? “I really like the layout. It will be really interesting.”
A Familiar Face
Marc Marquez, the eight-time world champion, is no stranger to the BIC. He expects the track to showcase its full potential if the grip levels are favorable. “It’s one of the circuits that, from the layout, looks really nice. But if the grip is good, then it will be even nicer,” Marquez remarked confidently.
An Organized Paradise
Mooney VR46 Racing Team rider Marco Bezzecchi couldn’t hide his excitement. He praised the circuit’s organization and aesthetics, saying, “To be honest, I liked it a lot. The paddock is very well organized, the plain is very beautiful, and we will know about the track only after riding on it, but it looks fantastic.”
Brad Binder, the current record holder for the highest speed in MotoGP, is taking a cautious approach. He acknowledged the challenges presented by the longest straight on his Red Bull KTM Factory Racing bike. “I don’t really know where the speed trap is, but also it’s quite downhill, which is cool. But then there’s a big kick on the end, so where it goes uphill there might kill the chances a little bit. But anyway, I think it’s a really long straight.”
