Barbera second in CRT battle at Silverstone
Good race of the Avintia Blusens rider, Héctor Barberá, at the GP of Great Britain. Starting from the fifth row he rode on the first two laps between the sixteenth and seventeenth position to place himself among the top fifteen about the fourth lap. With great pace and an aggressive riding style, Héctor placed himself as third CRT and fought with Edwards with whom he maintained a nice duel until both crossed the finishing line separated by a bit more than a tenth in favour of the Avintia Blusens rider. Barberá achieved the points of the thirteenth position and he was level on points with the American rider in the second place of the category classification. At Silverstone the rider from Valencia returned to the line of the good results obtained in the last races before the summer break.
8 Héctor Barberá: (13th, +1.01.690): “In Brno I had a fall and I could not do the race but I already said that we were strong and here we have been able to prove it. We have done a good race, I have had good pace and we have finished second in CRT. Here we were a bit more tense because before the summer break we had obtained good results and on the other hand in the last races things had not gone so well. The team has done a great job, during the practice sessions we have been improving step by step and that has allowed us to do a good race today. We have to continue making progress because the advantage that we had with the teams similar to us has been reduced, as for example with Colin’s team, and now they push us a lot. In a few days we go to Misano where I have always been very good and I hope to continue being in luck”.
