Ayumu qualifies second for the #AragonGP
Qualifying for the Aragon Grand Prix today was a great team result, proving the great competitiveness of the whole Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max Racing.
This result was achieved after a great job, which allowed Ayumu to confirm his speed, from the first session of practice and that gave John the chance to overcome the problems with the brakes found yesterday, which strongly penalized him.
Therefore, tomorrow Ayumu will start from the second box on the grid. Since this morning, in free practice 3, the two riders were very competitive, with Ayumu who conquered the fourth position of the combined and John, who got the eighth position.
The results on this track for the small Moto3, because of the long straight, are very dependent on the slipstream and the quality of the same, therefore in free practice 3, there were important gaps, unusual for this category. Unlike in qualifying, there have been smaller detachments. Specifically, Ayumu has a gap from poleman I. Guevara contained in 0.095 s
AYUMU SASAKI :
“I think was a good qualifying, I expected a little bit more for my lap time, but it is windy and is difficult to make lap time on my own, so I am happy with my lap. P2 tomorrow. I feel good on the bike, so hopefully tomorrow we can fight for the win, that is the target. We need to be careful the first three laps, trying to make a small group for the race and then we’ll see what we’re capable of doing.”
