Termas de Rio Hondo, 24 April: this weekend the riders will take on the challenge of the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo as Grand Prix racing returns to South America. Inaugurated in 2008, the circuit was modernized and enlarged in 2012 with the purpose of turning it into Latin America’s most modern, safe and vibrant circuit. The LCR racer Stefan Bradl had the chance to visit the new venue last year with few colleagues in a private test held in July. The young German had already proved his speed in Qatar where he led the race for 9 laps and was in the thick of the fight for third place a fortnight ago in Texas, eventually finishing fourth, so he will be aiming to make further inroads this weekend.Visit the section
