Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix Daily Update – July 25, 2012
Bradl Warms up for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix on the Streets of San Francisco
Lombard Street Makes Good Practice for “The Corkscrew”
As part of a Red Bull promotional video, LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl entertained bystanders on the streets of San Francisco yesterday as he rode his RC213V Honda MotoGP™ bike around Treasure Island, before making his way down the famously winding Lombard Street. This provided Bradl with a little practice for Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s Corkscrew turn, which he will tackle for the first time in MotoGP™ competition beginning Friday.
Bradl visited Monterey last May to acquire some independent track time. He walked the entire 2.238 mile circuit and then took his bike out to experience each one of the 11 magical turns. We are excited to see if the German rookie’s practice will pay off and how he will place for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.
Be sure to check in and stay tuned as the MotoGP™ buzz continues to build on the Monterey Peninsula.
