Reale Avintia Academy – GP of Argentina – Termas de Río Hondo
Reale Avintia Academy and Livio Loi finished the first free practice sessions in Argentina with the fourth fastest lap time of the day (1’50.899). During the first session, Livio was focused on trying several things on his KTM to find the best set-up and get some feeling with the track. In the afternoon session, with the work already done, the young Belgian rider pushed harder to be at the front, and he has succeeded. Loi and the team are very positive for the rest of the weekend and they hope to qualify tomorrow in the top 5, to be able to fight for a good result on Sunday.
“I think the team and myself did great job today. In the morning I wanted to get in track, get some feeling in order to be able to take a step in the second free practice session and, at the end of the day we fought to be on top of the time sheets. In the first session the track was very dirty, but we wanted to try several things with used tyres. Now, in the second, we have managed to have a good and fast pace. I’m very happy and I want to thank the team for all the work. Today the forecast said it was going to rain and it is the same for all the weekend, but luckily today it wasn’t like that. Let’s hope it remain the same for tomorrow and Sunday”.
