Jorge Navarro qualifies a brilliant sixth at Indianapolis

 In Moto3, News


Marc VDS Racing newcomer Jorge Navarro staked a claim for outstanding performance of the season in the Indianapolis Moto3 Qualifying session after he stormed to a sensational top six position on the grid for the 23-lap race.

The Spanish rider was almost 1.5s faster than his practice pace and he finished just over 0.5s behind World Championship leader Jack Miller with a lap of 1.41.248.

The 18-year-old’s sixth place is easily the best Moto3 qualifying result since Marc VDS Racing entered the competitive category at the beginning of 2013.

Jorge Navarro // 6th // 1’41.248
“I am so happy to qualify on the second row because honestly I really didn’t imagine a top six was achievable considering this is only my second day with the team and I have no experience of the bike or the track. The Marc VDS Racing Team has done an unbelievable job to help me adapt quickly and each time I go out on track I improve. I am strong on the brakes and there are some hard braking points here and this is helping and I have a lot of confidence with the Kalex KTM package. My objective tomorrow is just to learn as much as I can from the best talent in Moto3 and gain some experience. I don’t know how the bike will be in the race because I’ve not done 23-laps together but the goal is to finish.”
