 In News

Speed Up rider Augusto Fernandez enjoyed two solid free practice sessions at Misano today, improving his lap time and testing a good race pace.

In the morning session, the young Spaniard got an excellent fifteenth position in 1’39.370 while maintaining a steady pace throughout the session. In the FP2, however, he focused on the race pace while maintaining the tyres of the previous session.

AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ #37 – 26th in 1’39.283
“We started well this morning, we were pleased with the fifteenth time at a second from the first. I felt good with the bike, in fact in the afternoon we did not make great changes, but we simulated the race pace. We then scored twenty-sixth as we used the FP1 tyres. We missed the fast lap, but we know the reason why!”
