This week the Repsol Honda Team will head to Honda's home circuit in Motegi hoping to put behind them last week's black flag incident involving Championship leader Marc Marquez. Second place Australia GP finisher, Dani Pedrosa, will be hoping to continue his run of success at the Twin Ring Motegi, having won there the past two seasons.
Located amongst the vast natural beauty of the northern Kanto district, Twin Ring Motegi is a major attraction for motorsports fans all year round as it is the venue for the Honda Collection Hall, a museum which houses an illustrious collection of motorcycle, car and racing machines from throughout the ages.
Dani has enjoyed three victories (2012, 2011 MotoGP, 2004 250cc), one 2nd place (2005 250cc) and two 3rd positions (2009, 2008 MotoGP). Marc has also won twice (2012 Moto2, 2010 125cc) and taken a 2nd place (20 11 Moto2).
