Positive first day for Augusto Fernandez and FlexBox HP 40 in Montmeló
The Grand Prix of Catalunya is always a special race for the FlexBox HP40 squad of Sito Pons, becasue it is the home race and that means extra motivation for the riders and the team.
The first day of free practice was very positive for the two riders, featuring some very good work by Augusto Fernández. The Spaniard felt comfortable from the beginning and was confident with his Kalex, being fourth in the first free practice and leading in the afternoon. He ended the day with a better time of 1:44.782 and looks motivated for the remainder of the weekend.
Tomorrow the FlexBox HP 40 riders will return to the track at 10:55 hours with the last free practice dispute, and the official qualifying at 15:05.
Augusto Fernández, 4th, 1: 44.782 (+0.109)
“First day at Montmeló positive. In the morning we were able to shoot fast but in the afternoon we managed to take another step forward and improve the pace. The pace I have is good, I feel comfortable and I am happy with the first day. We have to continue like this tomorrow.”
