16/08/15 Avintia Racing MotoGP - Czech Republic - RACE GP
Since Friday the expectations of team Avintia Racing in Brno had been very high. With Barbera dominating Friday, going direct to the Q2 yesterday Saturday, and Di Meglio as the second best Open in timed workouts, the team eagerly awaited race to reach. But the 22 laps race has not ended with the result desired by everyone in Avintia Racing. Héctor Barberá has come out well from the 11th position of the grill and has been able to fight for several laps with some factory bikes, but insofar as the performance of tyres has begun to sag, has not been able to maintain the great rhythm that had shown during the weekend. At the end has not been able to rein in Loris Baz, who has cut a point in the standings to Barbera, who remains leader with five-point advantage.
Mike Di Meglio was the opposite. The French pilot of the Avintia Racing team has gone from least to most and has been in the second half of the race when shot at best rate. After fighting with several pilots Open has crossed the 18th goal.
The MotoGP World Championship is now takes a break from two weeks to return to action on August 30 on the circuit of Silverstone, scene of the great prize of Great Britain.
Hector BARBERA #8 / 16 ° (Open P2) @HectorBarbera
It has been a very hard day. This morning in the warm up we have done some electronic evidence but I have not felt very comfortable. It was still quite confident for the race. We have changed strategy by trying to be with some official bikes because we had pretty clear in this circuit, but then I realized that was a mistake, and the exertion which have subjected to the gums at the start of the race have paid it. The bike slipped much come in and out of curves and has been very complicated. But we have learned many things that we can apply in the next races.
