After a brief, traditional summer break the MotoGP Circus pitches up at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic for round ten of the World Championship with all three classes, MotoGp, Moto2 and 125's in action.
Vienna was deafened by the sound of cutting edge motorcycle technology when they revved up in the city. Machines from Moto2 and the 125 cc class were there alongside the premier class bikes.
It was all part of an exhibition for local enthusiasts to get a sense of the throb and growl of a MotoGP engine and experience the taste of the championship. After winning the World Superbike Championship in his rookie year many were tipping Texan Ben Spies to make an impact as he made the switch to MotoGP for this season. He also found the going very loud.
Ben Spies, USA Rider, said, "Yeah, it was fun. It was the first time I have rode a GP bike without ear plugs so, I wouldn't go out on the track like that. Yeah it is good to go out on a track like that and it is good to promote it. It is so close to the track and hopefully we can bring out more people by doing this. Yeah, it was a good day and now we go to the circuit and now we can start work and see how we go."
