John Hopkins kembali ke MotoGP
well, memang bukan (atau belum) untuk sesi tes sebagai wildcard seperti yg sudah diberitakan sebelumnya, tapi dalam sesi pembuatan film yg melibatkan dirinya (mungkin film dokumenter kali ya..) di sirkuit Losail, Qatar…
John ‘Hopper’ Hopkins mengitari sirkuit Losail dengan menggunakan GSV-R 2011 sebanyak beberapa lap, bahkan dia memakai nomor 21-nya di GSV-R 2011 yg dipinjamnya dari Alvaro Bautista…besok GSV-R ini akan digunakan oleh Bautista di sesi tes pra-musim terakhir di Losail..
berikut kata2 Hopkins :
“It’s really good to have been given this opportunity and it’s just been great to be here! It feels really cool to be back out and riding on a GP bike, even if it was just for filming it was still a lot of fun. I did start to get a decent feeling on the bike and it still feels awesome, even with the minimal amount of laps we were doing. It would be great to race the Suzuki in a MotoGP event, so hopefully I can have some success in BSB and get the chance to go for it in a Grand Prix again sometime in the future. My ultimate goal is to get back to MotoGP, but for now my full focus is on doing the best I can in the British Superbike championship with the Samsung Crescent team. I’ve really enjoyed today and I am very grateful to Rizla Suzuki for giving me the chance to be here – and thanks to Álvaro for letting me use one of his Rizla bikes.”
yap…semoga sukses di BSB-nya (British Superbike, bukan BacksteetBoys 😀 ) deh dan cepet2 balik ke MotoGP…dan, diet lah..dah gendutan tuh
