Augusto makes a good start at the Sachsenring
It was a good start for Speed Up Team at the Sachsenring today, the circuit close to Chemnitz, Germany, in which, on Sunday, the GoPro Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland will be held.
At the end of the first day of practices Augusto Fernández ranked nineteenth at his first run on the German circuit.
Under an uncertain sky, with variable temperatures, the Speed Up rider approached the two practice sessions by testing different tyre options and bike set-up.
Augusto, racing at the Sachsenring circuit for the first time, placed eighteenth in both sessions, confirming his ability to adapt to the new circuits and to the different bike settings. In the combined free practice time, he is nineteenth in 1’26.292.

“It’s been good today. This morning we did a good session, we had some things to improve in FP2 that we could not solve, but I managed to improved slightly in the morning though the feeling was worse. Tomorrow will be the weather to decide the setting to use, the only thing that counts is a good qualification.”
