Moto3 GP of the Czech Republic – Brno
The Saturday practice and qualifying for the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic was a tough learning experience for Vicente Pérez, because things didn’t work out the way the rider and his team Reale Avintia Academy 77 were hoping, and Pérez had to settle for the 24th position on the starting grid. Nevertheless, rider and team keep holding their heads high and are confident that they have the pace to fight for an acceptable result in the race on Sunday. The rider from Valencia will start from the eighth row on the grid, with the aim to battle within a group of similarly fast riders, get more experience in Grand Prix racing and reach the chequered flag in the 18-lap-race, which will start at 11 a.m.
“Today was a difficult day, the last free practice session as much as the qualifying. I tried everything but it didn’t work out. It was no problem on the team’s side, I simply tried to give a 100 per cent without getting results. I still have to improve in the second and the third sector. The race is tomorrow and we are not defeated yet. I have to get through the first laps, which will have a frantic rhythm, and if I can do that I’ll be fine for the rest of the race as well.”
