Le Mans: Augusto Fernández 12+1

The massive, vibrant crowd that filled Le Mans for the Grand Prix de France and round five of 2024 MotoGP were treated to another action-packed spectacle. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s riders were in the midst of the battle as Augusto Fernandez tackled the 27-laps to take 13th

Augusto Fernández pushes the GASGAS RC16 hard in the search for championship points and the Spaniard ends the day in 13th.

Anticipation and volume hit new heights at another capacity-filled Le Mans for the annual trip to La Sarthe. The Bugatti circuit inside the historic motorsport complex provided a grippy but also tricky Grand Prix challenge for the MotoGP teams. The mix of hard braking and accelerating zones was complicated by an overcast climate that threatened French rain and had the teams practicing for a bike swap and flag-to-flag outing.
MotoGP blasted around the track and was cheered by the crowd for 27 gripping laps.  Augusto Fernández started from 7th and 20th on the grid. AF37 kept pushing his times and rose through the rankings to enter the points. The Spaniard did not stop there and plotted a course to 13th for 3 decent points, a slice of confidence and signs of progression.
The Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 squad are situated 6th from 11 in the Teams table. The Gran Premi de Catalunya at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will entertain round six in two weeks’ time.
Augusto Fernández:
“My start was bad and we paid for that in the race. I had the soft tire so I thought I’d be better but these things can happen. It was a hard and tough race! Taking the positives of the weekend, it was the best GP for my feeling on the bike and we were more competitive, so I’m looking forward to Barcelona to keep this line and build up my confidence and speed.”
