Jake Dixon is confident of a return to form at this weekend’s Japanese MotoGP as he bids to put the disappointment of his Indian adventure behind him at Motegi.
The GasGas Aspar rider suffered a frustrating Indian MotoGP at Buddh after being denied the chance to capitalise on his second pole position of the season.
The Briton started well but after being eased off the track by an errant Alonso Lopez at Turn 1, then proceeded to collide with the Spaniard on lap three as he attempted to pass.
Forcing him into another costly DNF that leaves him 90 points adrift in the title race, Dixon is now heading to Motegi to simply target more race-winning silverware on the GasGas Aspar.
“Motegi is one of my favourite tracks. I love Japan and its culture. It will probably be less hot than in India and that will help us. I'm looking forward to race there.
“We arrive to Japan having reset our minds and we are looking forward to completing a good weekend. Last year I was very fast there and I think I can do even better this season.”
