Cold sunday race at LeMans circuit, which has seen many crashes due to track conditions.
Moto3 warm up, that opened the last day of the weekend, has been signed by higher laptime than those of qualifying practices, becuase track temperature was very low. Our riders ended up in 20th position for Masaki and 21st position for Yurchenko.
Race started at 11 o’clock, with both riders started from interesting grid’s positions. In the first lap many riders crashed in front of Yurchenko and, unfortunately, due to this, he lost time and positions.
Masaki was able to sign a better start lap and he gained some positions, and he followed this way by finishing 8th.
#22 KAZUKI MASAKI P.8
“This morning track was very cold and this caused a slower laptime. I tried to push hard and find a good pace, but it has been difficult finish warm up with a good position.
Instead, during the race I felt strong with the bike, I started the race gaining some positions in the first lap. In the first laps I hadn’t a constant pace but in the end I was able to keep on with the first ten riders. Finally I ended up the race in the top10, with a positive 8th position. Now I have to work a lot in order to try to be in the top5 in the next races. I want to say thank to all the team for the work they have done during all the weekend. “

“Finally today we got our firts points of the season.
Even so I’m a bit hungry because in the first lap we lost many positions due to other riders’ crashes just in front of me. It’s such a shame because in the end we had a good pace and my feeling with the bike haa improved too. Yesterday we have done a fantastic job with all the team and so our weekend hasn’t been so negative. Now we have to keep on this way in order to improve our result race by race. I want to say a big thank to all the team for all the hard work they have done during this days.
