Season 2023

Test in Misano

Testing, testing! GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 kept high on the throttle for the second one-day test of the 2023 MotoGP season and another hot day of duties around the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Augusto Fernández continued to increase his knowledge and advance his settings with the same racebike.

Augusto had a full schedule and was able to refine his base setting as well as try some other solutions to increase his level of comfort further with the #37 red rocket. He was 15th fastest.

The workload for the Gran Premio Red Bull di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini and round 12 of 2023 MotoGP had been locked, loaded and fired but there was an extra roster of activities planned for Monday. The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli was empty of fans but full of MotoGP noise as the teams tested from 9am until the later stages of the afternoon.

AF37 has been extremely consistent in MotoGP this season and his rookie term in the class but wanted to explore more options with the GASGAS RC16 to boost his chances of becoming an established top ten regular in the tight and competitive division. AF37 made a massive 82 laps in his quest and notched the 15th best lap-time once the chrono had stopped.
The crew then started to break down the bikes and pitbox and prepare the freight for international travel and the next seven Grands Prix on the road. First up is the Grand Prix of India at the Buddh International Circuit in two weeks.
Augusto Fernandez, 15th position:
“A lot of laps but positive and improving our laps. I feel better with my pace and what I can manage. So, I’m very happy. Thanks to the team for everything and I’m ready for India.”
