The Spanish team completed a great weekend in Portimão, with Joel Kelso fifth and David Muñoz ninth

BOÉ Motorsports was once again one of the top teams and finished the Portuguese Grand Prix on a high note. After some very positive practice sessions on Friday and Saturday for the team, especially for Joel Kelso who was constantly among the front runners and was second in Q2, today in the race both BOÉ Motorsports riders managed to score points.

In today’s Moto3 race only two teams were able to finish with both riders in the top ten, and one of them was BOÉ Motorsports. After an opening laps in which equality was the dominant note, Joel Kelso managed to get away with the front group that fought for the victory, while Muñoz remained in the second group.

The Australian rider was always in the fight for the podium positions and finally crossed the finish line in fifth position, while Muñoz, despite the difficulties he had this weekend, was ninth and led the group of four riders who were fighting for ninth place.

With these results, Joel Kelso is now sixth in the Moto3 World Championship with 19 points, while David Muñoz is thirteenth with seven points. BOÉ Motorsports is fourth in the team standings with a total of 26 points.

Joel Kelso:“We scored some good points today. It was a pity not to finish on the podium, but overall it was a very good race. In Moto3 it’s like a lottery, there are a lot of fights and anything can happen in the front group. It was a good weekend, we worked really well. In the race the bike was perfect, so I’m really happy with how everything went. We will have many more opportunities, the season is very long, it’s not how it starts, it’s how it ends. Every race we are stronger and we are already fighting at the front, we have shown that we are candidates for the victory”.

David Muñoz:“We finished a difficult weekend in which we couldn’t get the result we wanted. We have to improve and work on the set-up to be as comfortable as possible for the race. Today we managed to score points, we finished the race, which is very important, but we can’t be conformist. We have to work hard and give our all in the next Grand Prix to get a better result. Thank you very much to the team for their work and to everyone who came to Portugal to support us”.

The next Grand Prix will be held in the United States, during the weekend of 12-14 April.
