BRADL READY TO RIDE AT THE LEGENDARY LE MANS RACE TRACK
Le Mans, 15 May: LCR Honda's Stefan Bradl travels to legendary motorsport venue Le Mans this week for the Grand Prix de France with the aim to ride back in the front. Arm pump syndrome ruined Bradl's race at Jerez (he ended the race 10th) but the German had an operation to fix the problem last Tuesday and his motivation is high because he has shown that he can keep up with the front this season. Even this year LCR Honda MotoGP Team is pleased to announce that Elf will act as Title Sponsor branding Stefan Bradl's Honda motorbikes ahead the fifth round of the season.
Elf is a brand of TOTAL, one of the largest major integrated oil and gas companies in the world, with activities in more than 130 countries. Elf, since the 70's, never ended its commitment on the various prestigious motor sport platforms developing year after year the most advanced chemical technologies for producing top performing racing fuels, engine lubricants, hydraulic and brake fluids including all kinds of industrial and automotive grease products.
Stefan: "As everybody knows I had another surgery to treat the arm-pump problem which affected my race in Jerez. The operation was quick and successful and, in recent days, I have made all the treatments required to be fit for Le Mans. Actually I cannot make any prediction because I must see how it goes when I am on track but I feel good right now. Last year it was a tough race for me in the wet but it seems that the weather will be decent this weekend".
