Circuit Length: 5.1 km
Consisting of seventeen turns the modernistic circuit is a favourite among many riders and in 2010 was awarded the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year.
Having exhibited a strong performance throughout the race weekend in Italy, which saw the Czech rider predominantly within the top five, Kornfeil is feeling confident he can take full advantage of his Honda NSF250RW machine around the Spanish Circuit.
“I like the track at Aragon quite a lot, especially the layout and how it flows. There are some sectors where I always feel very strong, in particularly the cork-screw, which I like a lot and then before the long back straight there are some beautiful parts to ride. I’m really looking forward to race again!
I think this track can be good for the Honda and I don’t think there will be a great deal of difference in comparison to the KTM, so it could be a more level playing field but let’s see on Friday. I know our Honda is strong in the high speed corners so for sure this will give us an advantage at Aragon, especially in the first part of the track. I felt very strong in Misano and I am confident I can continue like this and bring a fighting mentality to Spain.”
“I’m very happy to be going to a circuit that I have ridden at already, this is a great feeling as I know I can get up to speed quicker at this track because I don’t have to take time to learn it.
I’ve been to Aragon twice before and I enjoyed it; the layout is very nice. I think the most important part is the last chicane going into the long straight; good drive out of the corner is vital in this section.
There are both tight and high-speed corners at Aragon, which can make finding the best set-up quite challenging. You also have to factor in the circuit’s location; we are up in the mountains and this means it can get very windy.
This will be the first time I’ve ridden a factory Honda at this circuit, so I’m very excited! The bike is very strong in the high-speed corners, so I feel very positive.
I have been training hard in Barcelona since Misano, so I feel both physically and mentally prepared for this next race.”
