Avintia Esponsorama Moto3 and Avintia VR46 Academy have finished the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana qualifying, the last of the season, at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
Niccolò Antonelli will start from 9th position. The Italian rider had to participate in Q1 because his best time in free practice was cancelled for exceeding the track limits. In Q2, Antonelli set a time of 1:39.149, which will allow him to start from the third row of the grid.
Carlos Tatay got direct access to Q2 by being 5th in the combined free practice times. The Valencian rider, with a time of 1:39.317, will start from 11th position in his home Grand Prix.
Tomorrow at 11:00 the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana race will start, where Antonelli and Tatay will try to end the season with a good result for the team.
