BOÉ Motorsports was once again a step away from victory at the Barcelona – Catalunya circuit. David Muñoz was unable to finish after being knocked out of the fight for the podium by another rider on the last corner

BOÉ Motorsports finished its home Grand Prix with a bittersweet taste. The team led by José Ángel Gutiérrez Boé has once again demonstrated that it is always one of the candidates for victory and one of the team’s riders, David Muñoz, was the one who gave the most excitement to today’s race with a spectacular comeback.

Although the weekend did not start in the best possible way for the Spanish team in the first practices, both David Muñoz and Ana Carrasco did not give up and improved their times. Even so, the two BOÉ Motorsports riders did not make it past Q1, a session in which David Muñoz was seventh and Ana Carrasco fifteenth.

In the race, from the start David Muñoz had a clear comeback. The Spanish rider, from nineteenth position, was thirteenth in just one lap. His progression was excellent: in just six laps he went from nineteenth position to fourth. From there, Muñoz was a clear candidate for the victory, in fact on the last lap he reached the first position, but in the last corner another rider crashed into David taking away his podium chance, an action for which he could not finish the race.

David Muñoz:“I had a good race, I’m very happy with the work we did this weekend. Obviously, we didn’t finish as we expected, but I’ll keep the positives. I want to continue in this line, I still have confidence in myself and we continue to take steps forward. I think we are in a good shape, next week we have another race in Misano and we have to think about that. I will keep working hard, the victory will come soon. Thank you very much to the team and everyone who supports me”.

Ana Carrasco:“Honestly, I’m quite disappointed today. After all the positive weekend we were having I thought we would have a good race today, but it was difficult. It was very windy and I wasn’t comfortable on the bike, I had no grip and it was difficult to turn in the fast corners. I couldn’t ride at the pace I had been riding all weekend, so I couldn’t fight with the group”.

The next Grand Prix will be held at Misano, during the weekend of September 9th and 10th.
