Arenas has enjoyed a productive summer, in which he has focused on aspects to improve in the remaining races of the year. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 rider is positive about the BritishGP and confident of continuing the upward trend of results, picking up from where he left off at Assen. Arenas is twelfth in the overall standings with 41 points.

#37 PEDRO ACOSTA
“Silverstone is a new circuit for us, as Assen was. In the first part of the season we were quite consistent, so we have met our objective. I think we are well prepared after the work we have done this summer with the team. It will be important to start the second part of the year well and I think we can get a good result.”
#75 ALBERT ARENAS
“We are back at Silverstone with a great desire to compete. Last year I was competitive throughout the weekend there, so I have good expectations. It has been a long break in which I have been able to work on things that I want to improve. Now there are circuits that I like coming up, but we are going to focus on working day-by-day and remaining steady. I can’t wait to join up with the team and start working.”
