Silverstone Stats

The British Grand Prix is almost upon us and Motoscene is giving you all the key statisitcs you need to know in the lead up to it.

Jorge Lorenzo is the man to beat around Silverstone taking two victories on the bounce with a final corner duel with Marc Marquez the highlight of last years race. With a return to form for Lorenzo and a disappointing race from Marquez in Brno last time out we can expect to see another epic duel between the two spaniards, but we’re pretty sure Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa will have something to say about that.
