Fresh and fully recharged after a well-deserved two week summer break, the
Repsol Honda Team will be back in action this weekend for the second visit of
the season to the United States. The legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosts
the MotoGP family for the fifth consecutive year, and marks the eleventh round
of the 2012 World Championship.|
The venue, in its short history in MotoGP, has been good to the Repsol Honda Team. Dani Pedrosa (one pole position, one victory and one second place) and Casey Stoner (one pole and one victory) have been the last two winners of the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix. Dani won in 2010 with a clear margin of 3.5 seconds ahead of local hero Ben Spies, and Casey crossed the finish line in first place last year in front of Dani.
This year the engine power of the RC213V 1000cc machines will make a difference on the long straight of 0,872 kms. The changes in the asphalt, a very fast first turn and continuous changes in direction are in the DNA of this tight and technical track, world-renowned for the famous oval and the Brickyard.
The Repsol Honda Team celebrated their 300th podium at Laguna Seca and will aim to return after the holidays to increase this number with both riders fighting for the Championship, where Dani Pedrosa is currently second in the standings, 23 points from the lead, and Casey Stoner, third, 9 points behind his team mate.
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
