Reale Avintia Academy 77 Moto3 – GP of Aragón– MotorLand
The qualifying practice for the Grand Prix of Aragón took place in ideal conditions, with bright sunshine and summer temperatures. Vicente Pérez, rider of team Reale Avintia Academy 77, was able to improve his lap times by more than a second in comparison to Friday. Pérez not only went faster, the rider from Valencia climbed up to 24th position on the starting grid and finished the session less than two seconds behind the fastest Moto3 rider of the day, world championship leader Jorge Martin.
In the warm-up session on Sunday morning, the team will refine the set-up of his KTM so Pérez will be able to put up a fight and finish the race within the Top 15. After putting some points into his account at the last race at Misano, Vicente Pérez hopes to score come points again in front of his Spanish fans at MotorLand Aragón.
“I have improved considerably compared to yesterday, but we missed out on a spot within the 15 fastest riders by four tenths of a second. I don’t know if I should be happy with our performance or not, because I didn’t quite achieve what I wanted. Since the lap times are very close together, I expect us to be fighting in a big group in the race tomorrow, but at the same time, I have to acknowledge that the front runners are still on another level. Nevertheless, I am determined to give the maximum in the race and to award the best crowd in the world with a strong result.”
