“It’s been a tough day from the start. Yesterday’s crash affected us mostly morally, physically I feel good, but I didn’t have the confidence and ease to do a good FP3. I took it easy, I wasn’t completely happy, I was going step by step and in the end in Q1 the times weren’t what I wanted, but the feelings were there. In the end we were only a tenth and a half away from going through to Q2, so we’re not happy, but we’re satisfied because we’re seeing progress and we’re moving forward. After yesterday’s crash, we’re getting up step by step.”

GOOD FEELINGS FOR CARLOS TATAY ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE EMILIA ROMAGNA GRAND PRIX

FP1 & FP2

Carlos Tatay and the Reale Avintia Moto3 competed today in the first two free practices of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

During the morning session, Tatay worked with the team to continue with the adaptation to his KTM. The Spanish rider, after completing a total of 13 laps, managed to set a best time of 1’43.060.

In the second session, Carlos Tatay took a significant step forward after improving his best time by four tenths. After stopping the clock at 1’42.679, the Valencian was only three tenths slower than last weekend’s pole position.

Tomorrow the third free practice and qualifying sessions of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will take place, where the Reale Avintia Moto3 will fight for the best possible starting position for Sunday.


“The position does not reflect all the work we have done, since we have taken a great step forward ending a second from the first and +0.3 from Q2. Tomorrow we will continue to work on this line, and thanks all the work the team is doing.”
