For all those die-hard MotoGP fans, it’s good news. The 2017 MotoGP World Championship will continue beginning this weekend. It has been four weeks since we haven’t witnessed any MotoGP action. The last race was held in Germany on 2nd of July 2017 and the venue for the next one is Brno, the Czech Republic scheduled for 6th of Aug, 2017.
So far in the 2017 MotoGP World Championship, there have been nine races in total and nine are remaining. We’ve seen tremendous competition among the riders and the teams. With riders switching teams for this season, we’d already anticipated seeing thrilling results all along the season and we haven’t been any wrong so far; with ten different podium finishers, four different championship leaders and five different winners.
Marquez has had a tough time in getting to the top of the Championship standings but finally, he has reached the summit after winning the last race in Germany. It is the first time in this season that he is at number one; facing tough competition from his team-mate Dani Pedrosa.
Maverick Vinales, who joined Yamaha Movistar from this season, has been performing brilliantly so far. He knows he got the potential and the resources to be the next MotoGP World Champion and he will push limits to score points in the remaining nine races of the season. But stopping him to do so is his team-mate, Valentino Rossi. Grasping his first ever GP win in 1996 in 125cc category in Brno, The Doctor is all prepared to go to work.
We are pretty boosted up for the upcoming 2017 MotoGP race at Brno, the Czech Republic.
