Cardus struggling to find traction as he battles on with old chassis
QMMF Racing Team rider Ricky Cardús battled through a tough second day of practice at his home Grand Prix of Aragón. After a crash on Friday, which destroyed the new chassis of his Moriwaki prototype machine, the 23-year-old from Barcelona had to go out with the previous version of his frame. Even though he struggled to find enough traction, he still managed to improve his lap time, but dropped back to 26th place on the starting grid.
Luis Solano, team coordinator: “It was a strange weekend for Ricky so far. We first tested the new chassis and swingarm and he felt very good. He then crashed and destroyed the new chassis, so we had to go back to the old one. He did as much as he could in qualifying, but a lot of credit also goes to his technicians. They worked miracles to prepare the bike for the second session yesterday and I want to thank them even though this second session didn’t take place due to the power cut.”
