Temporada 2024


Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 made their final tweaks and adjustments under the glaring lights of the Lusail International Circuit to wrap the 2024 ‘testing’ phase of the fresh MotoGP campaign. Augusto Fernandez went through a checklist of preparation work for the racing year and had time to record the 15th and 21st fastest laps from the sessions in Qatar.

Augusto Fernández gets his rhythm going with the GASGAS RC16, improves his feeling with the 2024 configuration and sets a chrono under the fastest lap from the 2023 GP.

Qatar resumed a familiar status as the launchpad of another MotoGP campaign with the second pre-season test of the calendar year and two more days of important setup and familiarization duties for the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 crew. The Lusail International Circuit staged the penultimate round of the 2023 series last November but is back to the position of opening the series for 2024 and the first of 21 Grands Prix over the next ten months.
Augusto Fernández racked-up the laps at the track a short distance north of the Qatari capital city in the afternoon and evening sessions on Monday and Tuesday. AF37 found a positive flow on his GASGAS RC16 to discover improvements and a refined setting after initial work in Malaysia two weeks ago.
MotoGP heads home and back to respective bases but only for two weeks. The series will journey back to Doha and Lusail for the Grand Prix of Qatar from March 8-10 to get the championship underway, and GASGAS will add a bright red touch to the grid for what will be only the brand’s second attempt at the premier class.
Augusto Fernandez:
“Pre-season done and it’s been hard sometimes but I have to say Qatar went better and we worked well. I gained more understanding, and we are getting closer. Our pace was a bit better as well. We’ll keep pushing this way. Now for the real thing: let’s go racing.”
