The fifteenth race of the 2017 Moto3 World Championship was held today at Twin Ring Motegi.
The warm up of this morning was red-flagged because of an oil leakage and consequently it was shortened: with less time at disposal, Guevara and his technicians didn’t have much of a chance to work on the final details of the setting for the KTM machine. In the race, Juanfran started cautiously from the 18th position of the grid: the Spaniard came back up to the points area, yet a crash with two laps to go to the chequered flag prevented him from finishing.
Today the Motegi circuit was the venue for the FP3 and QP of the Moto3 class for the Motul Grand Prix of Japan.
The track was once again wet in both sessions. Rodrigo continued to progress during the FP3, working on the pace with a long run and setting his personal best of 2’11.348. Gabriel faced the QP with confidence, staying in the front positions throughout the practice. The Argentinian grabbed the eighth best time (2’10.227), a useful result ahead of tomorrow’s race.
The Moto3 riders got out on track for the first two sessions of the Motul Grand Prix of Japan, the first round of the three flyaway races of October.
Today’s practices were held on wet track: Guevara took advantage of the FP1 in order to adapt to the conditions, gathering important data to improve the setting in case of rain. In the FP2, Juanfran crashed out on his first hot lap, consequently losing most of the session. With less than 10 minutes to go, the Spaniard could return to the track, completing three laps and setting the time of 2'15.748.
The fourteenth race of the 2017 Moto3 World Championship was held today, at the circuit of Motorland Aragón. Because of a thick fog in the morning, the warm up was delayed and, afterwards, the race was also reduced to 13 laps.
Guevara could finish the warm up with the 12th time, only 1.021 seconds off the fastest. In the race, the Spaniard came back quickly in the first few laps, joining the first group. Juanfran crossed the finishing line in 12th position, as he grabs four points for the General Standings.
The starting grid for the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón was defined today, after this afternoon’s qualifying session.
Rodrigo started the day with another long run, as he checked the options that were prepared to improve the feeling with his KTM. In the qualifying, Gabriel completed a few quick laps that put him within the Top-10 in the first half of the practice. On his last run, the Argentinian set the time of 1'59.167, finishing 12th.
The Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón kicked off today, the fourteenth round of the 2017 World Championship.
During today’s first session, Guevara and his technicians put together some important information in order to prepare the KTM setting. Because of a few rain showers throughout the morning, it wasn’t possible to complete the work plans that had been made for FP2. However, when the track was almost completely dry in the second half of the session, the Spaniard could improve his feeling on used tyres, finishing the FP2 only 1.182 seconds off the fastest rider.
Today the Misano World Circuit hosted the thirteenth race of the Moto3 World Championship.
The riders had to deal with a sudden change in the track conditions because of the rain, which started falling from the early morning. Guevara took advantage of the warm up to check the wet setting, ending with the 15th time. In the race, Juanfran came back quickly, reaching the Top-10. With 15 laps to go, Juanfran crashed out when he was in 7th position, being forced to retire from the race.
