The Catalan GP takes place this weekend in Barcelona and, coinciding with the seventh round of the MotoGP season, Repsol have put on a 10-day exhibition on Passeig de Gràcia street in the city. Unique vehicles such as Honda bikes ridden to victory by riders like Marc Márquez, Dani Pedrosa, Mick Doohan and Álex Crivillé are on display and up close for locals and tourists.
6TH JUNE 2019: Repsol are celebrating their 50th anniversary in motorsport with an unprecedented exhibition on one of the most emblematic streets of Barcelona, between June 6th and 16th. Some 21 cars and motorcycles, used in their day by names such as Ángel Nieto, Marc Márquez, Pedro Martínez de la Rosa and Nani Roma, will be exhibited in almost twenty shop windows on Passeig de Gracia street in the Spanish city.
5TH JUNE 2019: The Italian Grand Prix was a demanding round for the Repsol Honda Team, but Marc Márquez came out of the event increasing his lead of the World Championship after finishing second. At one of the less favourable tracks for him, the Spaniard challenged for victory until the last lap and managed to finish ahead of his immediate pursuer in the overall standings, extending his advantage by four points. For Jorge Lorenzo, it was another weekend of intense work adapting to the Honda, concluding with the decision to travel to Japan this week in search of new solutions.
4TH JUNE 2019: At one of the fastest circuits on the MotoGP calendar, the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello, Marc Márquez took second place this past weekend and extended his lead in the series. During the Italian Grand Prix, the Repsol Honda rider achieved a top speed of 351.5 km/h, close to the 400 km/h that he would reach with Repsol Red Bull Air Race pilot Juan Velarde up in the sky in a special meeting between the two.
28TH MAY 2019: The sixth round of the MotoGP World Championship comes after two consecutive victories for Marc Márquez at Jerez and Le Mans, in addition to his win in Argentina and second place in Qatar.
21ST MAY 2019: The French Grand Prix, the fifth round of the MotoGP World Championship season, saw a third victory for Marc Márquez this year, and his second in a row following the Spanish GP.
The result continues the reigning World Champion’s good form to start the season, and extends his lead in the 2019 overall standings. Team Manager Alberto Puig also notes that on the other side of the Repsol Honda box there were positive signs from Jorge Lorenzo, who continues to make progress in his adaptation to the Honda.
