Terol and his 125cc Aprilia to race Indy

Fresh off winning the Czech Grand Prix in Brno earlier this month, Nicolas "Nico" Terol and his Blackstone Tek (BST) wheel-equipped Aprilia come to America second in the FIM 125cc Grand Prix standings.

Terol, a 5'6", 127 lb. Spaniard who celebrates his 21st birthday today, persevered through a torrential rain storm at last year's inaugural Red Bull Indianapolis GP to score his first grand prix win by 1.7 seconds. Riding the number 18 Jack & Jones WRB entry, he went on to turn his first podiums and race victory into a fifth-place championship performance.

These diminutive, two-stroke machines and their compact riders are the first to hit The Brickyard this weekend. 125cc action begins with Friday's hour-long free practice session at 12:40, qualifying on Saturday at 1:00 and Sunday's 23-lap race at high noon.

Proven internationally at every level of FIM Grand Prix competition and in winning 12 national championship titles around the world, BST wheels are DOT-legal for street use in America. Approved for WERA Superbike and Formula 1 roadracing classes, they are currently undergoing AMA Pro Racing's homologation process.
