NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR CARLOS TATAY IN THE GRAND PRIX OF ANDALUSIA

Previo

Carlos Tatay and Reale Avintia Moto3 will contest the third race of the season at the Jerez-Angel Nieto Circuit. After the unfortunate weekend before, Tatay will face the Gran Premio de Andalucia with the aim of recovering from the difficult second round of the season for the category.

The Valencian rider of the Reale Avintia Moto3 had an unfortunate Grand Prix of Spain, when in the first curve he was hit by an opponent and could not do anything to avoid a fall that forced him to abandon. Tatay will have another opportunity this weekend to achieve a good result that will help him to recover his sensations and thus score the first points of the season.

The Andalusian Grand Prix will start next Friday, when the first two free practices will take place. The Reale Avintia Moto3 is facing a new weekend of competition which it hopes will conclude with a positive result for the whole team.


“I’m very motivated to race again in Jerez. We didn’t restart the season in the way we wanted, but we are looking forward to this Andalusian Grand Prix to do well and be in the positions the team deserves. We are ready.”

“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.”
