Honda Racing Renews Contract with Marc Marquez Until End of 2018
Honda Racing Corporation has announced a contract extension for 23-year-old Spanish rider Marc Marquez that will see him continuing to race for the Repsol Honda Team for the next two years.
Marc is currently in his fourth season in the MotoGP class, always with the Repsol Honda Team. During that time, he has achieved two World Titles, in his rookie season in 2013, and again in 2014, whereas he finished third last year. Thus far, Márquez so far has won nearly half of the Premier-class races he has entered and has finished on the podium 73% of the time.
With six rounds having been completed in the 2016 season, Márquez arrives at this weekend’s Catalan GP second in the standings by just 10 points.
As said by Marquez, “I’m very happy to announce this renewal with HRC, especially coinciding with Grand Prix of Catalunya, my home GP, where I have some really good memories. HRC and I have a very strong relationship, and I’ve always wanted to continue being a part of the Repsol Honda Team.”
