Ricky Cardus fires into the top ten in qualifying at Assen

 In Moto2, News


Ricky Cardus undertook a promising qualifying session today to extend his competitive streak from Barcelona, by qualifying in 9th position and on the 3rd row for round 8 of the Moto2 World Championship despite tricky conditions at Assen.

The Spanish rider’s relentless efforts yesterday saw him cruise to 9th place in the afternoon session as he sought to consistently remain in the top ten throughout the whole weekend.

His final qualifying time was a 1.38,027 as the rain fell intermittently which was only slightly more than three tenths of a second from the front row as he continues to impress in the fiercely challenging Moto2 class aboard the Tech3 Racing Team’s exclusively made and designed Mistral 610.

Tomorrow, Cardus will aim to add another strong result to his 2014 Moto2 campaign in the 24 lap dash around the legendary Assen circuit.

“It is great to land 9th position in Assen as this is close to what I have been aiming for especially because there have still been a few minor problems with the front of the bike but regardless, both the position and lap times are pleasing so I am truly happy. Considering that I am normally struggling the most during qualifying, I am confidently looking forward to tomorrow as I am sure that we will improve the last small issues during warm up. I must say that I am really happy also for the Tech3 Racing Team as they are always working so hard and helping me with everything which is important for my confidence. Tomorrow I will aim to make a really strong start, keep calm and take the race step by step as it’s most important for me to score a good result.”
