Crutchlow: I like racing at Le Mans

LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow is hoping to continue to improve at this weekend’s MotoGP World Championship event at the Le Mans circuit in France after looking good last time out in Jerez.

In the last race in Spain at the Jerez Circuit, Crutchlow finished in 11th place for his best finish of the season and followed that up with a one-day test at Jerez recently that went very well.

The British rider heads to Le Mans where he has had success in the past having picked up a podium with a second place in 2013 in wet conditions.

In an interview with The Coventry Observer, the 30-year-old Crutchlow said that he enjoys going to Le Mans as it was a massive event in the race calendar.

“It’s always a good feeling to be going to Le Mans, I like racing there,” said Crutchlow. “It might not be the best circuit on the calendar for me, but I’ve had a podium there in the past.

“Last year things didn’t go to plan at all for me there, but I hope to put in some hard work on the Honda this weekend. We know the manufacturer is pulling out all the stops, and from the LCR Honda team point of view, we’ll also be doing our best job as always.

“I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of fans there over the weekend, because it’s a massive event that fans travel to watch from all over France, and I just hope that we can be competitive from here on in the championship.”
