Elias eager to test various improvements after cancelled practice
The seventh round of the season at the historic Assen race track marks the tenth anniversary of Toni Elias’s win here aboard a Honda in the 125cc class. The 28-year-old Spaniard returns for his 12th visit to the circuit in northern Holland hoping to continue on the progress he made in Great Britain but today the Moto2 reigning World Champion and his colleagues had to sit out the second free session due to slippery asphalt conditions.
Heavy rains affected this morning first free session at the Dutch circuit with Elias on the 14th position of the classification whilst during the Moto2 practice the marshals displayed the red flag and later the cancellation of the session with four minutes remaining due to oil spoilage on track. For safety reason Elias and his colleagues will be back on track tomorrow morning at 10:10 local time.
Toni Elias: “This morning we have tested two different settings in the wet and one of those two was a good one for my riding style. Well… if it rains again tomorrow I have got good chances to ride faster. Of course this session cancellation does not help anybody: I had a list of adjustments to fix but I can not do anything now. Let’s see what happens tomorrow”.
