The MIE Racing Honda Team and Leandro ‘Tati’ Mercado move on to round six of the 2021 Superbike World Championship, scheduled to take place this coming weekend at Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic.
Ten days ago, at the Dutch Assen TT circuit, Argentinian rider Mercado battled hard during the weekend’s three races, achieving a best result of twelfth aboard the CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADE and showing significant improvement with respect to the season-opener at Aragón. Having sat out rounds 2 to 4 in order to work on development, the team is spurred on by its performance in The Netherlands, and enthusiastic about the possibility to compete at what is a new track for the Superbikes and where the team completed a testing session in July.
Constructed between 1978 and 1983, Autodrom Most underwent renovation work in 2003, before undergoing a change of ownership in 2014. Measuring 4.212 km in length, the track comprises 21 corners, 7 right-handers and 14 left-handers. The circuit is located in the north-west of the country, just outside the town of Most.
