Reale Avintia Academy 77 – GP of the Czech Republic – Brno
The first day of practice for the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic went quite well for Vicente Pérez and his team Reale Avintia Academy 77. On his first ever session on the Brno track, the young rider from Valencia was very fast and reached 13th place, with a lap time of 2’10.585, just 1.3 seconds behind the fastest rider.
Vicente and his team had a lot of confidence for the second free practice session in the afternoon, but nothing they tried worked as expected and their lap times were quite a bit slower than in FP1.
For Saturday, Vicente and his team set their goal to break into the Top 15 again. They will also work on race pace, with the goal of shining on Sunday and battling for some World Championship points.
“Today was a mix of good and bad. In FP1, we were pretty strong, but in FP2 with more heat in the afternoon, we tried different things that didn’t work as we had expected. But we have more ideas about how to improve tomorrow and we will push as hard as we can, because this track suits my riding style and I am convinced of our chances to do well here at Brno.”
