· David Muñoz crashed out on the last corner of the final lap in the fight for the top six after a good comeback
· Ana Carrasco moved up to twenty-first position and showed solid improvement over the weekend
BOÉ Motorsports finished the Grand Prix of the Americas with bad luck in the results, but with a really encouraging performance for the next races.
The Circuit of The Americas hosted the third Grand Prix of the season, a really complicated and physical track where David Muñoz had never raced before. Despite this, the Andalusian rider adapted well from the start, while Ana Carrasco also showed consistent and positive improvements.
From the first practices of the weekend the BOÉ Motorsports riders were taking steps forward with a very solid work of the whole team. In fact, on Saturday Ana Carrasco improved her fastest lap from Friday by half a second and David Muñoz made it straight into Q2. The bad luck came in this qualifying session for David, as he crashed on the first lap of the session. Despite suffering a huge crash the team managed to repair the bike in a few minutes and the Andalusian rider was able to go out to try to do a lap, but finally he could not set a valid time after exceeding the limits of the track.
After this crash on Saturday, David Muñoz started the race from sixteenth position with pain in his arm. Both Muñoz and Ana Carrasco started to gain positions from the first laps with a good consistency, even David was able to fight in the second group of the race for the ‘top 6’. Unfortunately, the BOÉ Motorsports rider crashed on the last corner of the last lap and could not score points. Ana Carrasco, who started from 26th position, managed to finish 21th.
The next Grand Prix will be in Spain, at the Jerez-Ángel Nieto circuit, during the weekend of 29th and 30th April.
