MotoGP Brno: Abraham confident of Brno future, 2015 Honda

"They are really working on it hard and I hope MotoGP will remain in the Czech Republic" - Karel Abraham.
Karel Abraham is confident that the Czech Republic round will remain on the MotoGP calendar, while he expects to continue with Honda machinery in 2015

Abraham is the only Czech in the premier-class, riding a Production Honda for a team owned by his father, who also owns the Brno circuit.

Assen is the only venue that has hosted more Grand Prix events than Brno, but there have been serious doubts about a contract extension beyond this season.

“About the race on the Czech Republic, it looked really bad and we actually thought it's going to end for sure," Abraham confirmed. “But now there are some possibilities that have opened up and it looks like it may be saved for another couple of years, which would be perfect.

“So we will see. They are really working on it hard and I hope the race will remain in the Czech Republic. That would be beautiful.

“And about us, we are planning our future again with Honda for next year. If everything works well we should remain with them. With a little bit better engine, it should be a lot better next year.”

Abraham, who suffered a serious shoulder injury in 2013, has scored points in all but two events so far this year for 17th in the world championship.

For me curtain tracks are the backbone of the motogp championship.tracks like Brno, Phillip Island, Assen, Jerez, for exp I don´t understand why organizers don´t get that. The true fans want to see racing on real racetracks. that have fast smooth turns. Not tight turns and chicanes that are flat out dangerous for bike racing. I understand they want to explore new markets, But it has to by about the racetracks. If the racing is boring the people won´t come and to see half empty grandstands is not looking nice. Like last weekend in Indy. that place is to big and the track is boring overall. I don´t think organizers like to see more empty seats then not on TV.
