Bengaluru, August 1: The FIM MotoGP World Championship resumes after the summer break with the Czech Grand Prix at the Automotodrom Brno circuit on Sunday (August 4).

Always among the busiest and highest attended races of the year, the Czech GP is a favourite with fans and riders alike.

The 5.4km long circuit welcomes the MotoGP riders back, who all are recharged and ready to attack the second half of 2019.

Leading the group is world champion Marc Marquez's Repsol Honda Team, who are eager to return to track and continue fighting for victory.

Having delivered a supreme performance at the German GP, Marquez entered the mid-season break with a generous 58-point lead in the FIM MotoGP World Championship.

Defending this advantage over his title rivals is the main objective for the reigning world champion at the Czech GP.

Brno is amongst Marquez's most favourtie circuits - only once finishing off the podium since joining the premier class in 2013 and never finishing outside of the top five.

"Brno is a circuit where lots of riders are often strong so we can't take anything for granted.

I hope Jorge's recovery is going well and we will soon have him back in the team," the world champion concluded.
