23 Jul MotoGP: Sachsenring – 15/07/18
MotoGP, Sachsenring: last fires before the mini summer break!
This weekend the Sachsenring race was held for the last time in the German circuit.
The Nolan Group riders have been part of the show as usual, both in MotoGP, with Danilo Petrucci, and in Moto3, with Aron Canet. In Moto2 we’ve finally had the return of Remy Gardner, talent and son of art, back from an injury.
The race? It was spectacular. Our boys? Lions, as usual … and now? A small summer break for you, because we continue to think of new ways to make you ride safe!
Danilo Petrucci FOURTH
“It’s a shame I couldn’t get to the podium but I’m very satisfied for this weekend. We have done a great job both in terms of set-up and electronics and I would like to thank the whole team. We go on holiday with a smile”.
Remy Gardner ELEVENTH
“Finally, it was a good race. Qualifying was not too great yesterday, but I still knew in my head that we can be confident for the race, we just needed a bit of luck in the first couple of laps. I think our main advantage this weekend was that we had to use the S1 tyre in the race and I think more people struggled with that compared to us. For me it was a quite clean race. I was a but lucky in the first laps, then I got held up a bit, but my pace was very constant. We are back where we need to be. We’d like to have a bit more, but I think that’s a consequence of Qualifying. We’ll work harder for the next round.”
Aron Canet FIFTH
“I think we could have improved our fifth position, I had a better pace than many of my rivals, but it was very difficult for me to overcome them on the front line. I had several contacts with other riders during the race. I stayed a while back and a coming back was complicated. I could only recover a few meters in the braking, but I could not anticipate.
I would have liked to get a much better result in the race. “
