After a two-week break, the MIE Racing Althea Honda Team is now on its way to Alcañiz in Spain for rounds 4 and 5 of the 2020 Superbike World Championship, taking place at Motorland Aragón over the next two weekends.
Having already visited this particular track on several occasions in the past, Japanese rider Takumi Takahashi will continue to strive for progress aboard his CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, while Lorenzo Gabellini will be competing at what is another new track for him. The fact that the next six WorldSBK races will take place at Motorland Aragón can only be an advantage for the MIE Racing Althea Honda riders, as they will have plenty of time to respectively re-adapt to, and get to grips with, the Spanish circuit.
The Motorland Aragón structure, inaugurated in 2009 and located roughly 250 km from Barcelona, has hosted the Superbikes every year since 2011. 5077 metres in length, the track features seven right-hand turns and 10 left-handers.
