Reale Avintia Academy – GP of the Americas – COTA
Livio Loi finished disappointed yesterday in qualifying with 26th place, but the Belgian rider of Reale Avintia Academy team was confident for the race. The most important thing was to make a good start and he did so. In just two laps he was already 14th, and with six or seven laps to go, he was in sixth position. But when he was already with the front group, he had an issue with the front brake and finally finished the race in tenth place.
A great result considering his grid position and, without doubt, a good lesson for the Reale Avintia Academy and the Belgian rider for the upcoming European races where they hope to go one step further.
The Moto3 World Championship will now head to Spain, for the fourth round of the season at Jerez Circuit from May 4th to 6th.
“It was a crazy race because I had to start from the last row of the grid and I had to push very hard in the first few laps. I was ready to fight and, at one point, I was in sixth position. I almost was with the front group but, I had problems with the front brake in the last six laps and I couldn’t brake hard. It was a good race, but without that little issue, I think I could have done even better. I want to thank the hard work of my team has and also Zelos. The next race will be the Spanish Grand Prix and and I’m looking forward for a great result in my team’s home race.”
