Augusto in top ten on day one at Sepang
The FlexBox HP 40 has started on Friday the last grand prix of the transoceanic tour in the Sepang International Circuit with the dispute of the two free practice sessions, under conditions of intense sun and humidity.
The pupils of Sito Pons, Augusto Fernández and Lorenzo Baldassarri, have not had an easy start but, as always, they are optimistic to improve tomorrow.
Fernandez has not found the good feelings on his Kalex until a few minutes from the end, at which time he has marked a time of 2:06.680 that serves to close the day in the top 10.
The FlexBox HP 40 riders will be back on track tomorrow at 9:55 local time -2:55 Spanish peninsular time- with the dispute of the last free practice session and, the qualifying, at 13:30 local time -6:30 Spanish peninsular time-.
Augusto Fernández, 10th, 2:06.680 (+0.712)
“First difficult day, we have not started well at all. We are having a hard time finding the feeling with the Kalex and the circuit, but the positive thing is that in the last moments of the training we have changed the configuration and I have improved suddenly. I could mark a competitive enough time and tomorrow we will start with this base to continue improving.”
