Moto3 GP of the Czech Republic – Brno
Vicente Pérez, who started the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic from the 24th place on the grid, cut the distance to the front runners considerably in the race. Even though he finished in 21st position, he had a clearly stronger pace, which boosts his and his team’s confidence for the future. The turnaround to the better came in the Sunday morning warm-up session, where Pérez found a key ingredient to the set-up of his bike. At the next race in Austria, the technicians will try to further explore this technical direction and fine-tune the new set-up.
The rider from Valencia and his Team Reale Avintia Academy77 gave 100 per cent in order to obtain the best possible result at Brno, which was a positive experience for the next round, the Grand Prix of Austria, which will be held from 10th to 12th of August at the Red Bull Ring of Spielberg.
“It wasn’t a bad race at all, as we finished less than 12 seconds behind the leading group of riders. I think we found something crucial in the warm-up session this morning and our only regret is that we didn’t go this way earlier, because with these changes, we were able to ride much faster. I improved my pace by eight tenths of a second in comparison to yesterday’s qualifying, which shows clearly that these modifications work well. I was able to hook on to the group in front of me and defend myself, but then I made a mistake and went straight. I caught up again and won the battle with the group in front of me, which felt really good. I am highly motivated now to race in Austria, because I’ve been told it is easy to be fast on that track”.
