Juanfran Guevara works hard for fourth row start at Misano

 In Moto3, News


Fortunately, today everything returned to normal at Misano, as the sun shone and mild temperatures allowed the Moto3 riders to work well on their bikes for tomorrow’s race.

There was plenty of activity on track, in the two sessions (the last FP and the QP) which the smaller class had to get their bikes ready. Marquez was the fastest this morning, and was the favorite for the pole after dominating much of QP, but a fall in the last few minutes prevented him from cashing in.

In contrast, Miller, gathering pace throughout the session, took pole in the final stages. He will start first, ahead of Ajo and Rins, but will have to fight hard for the win because not only his fellow front row starters are strong at Misano. Riders such as Oliveira, Marquez and Vazquez have also shown great form so far this weekend.

MAPFRE Aspar rider, Juanfran Guevara, was back on the job and working hard to try and repeat his successful performance in Silverstone qualifying. Juanfran, who has made his intentions clear in a number of races, pushed hard at the beginning of the session to ensure a good lap time.

He then continued to work, and hoped to improve on the last run, but an error and busy traffic prevented him from reducing the time. He concluded the session 12th thanks to his early work and feels ready for tomorrow’s race.

12th – Juanfran Guevara 1’43.956 (17 laps):
“The start of QP was positive, and we set out quickly to look for a good time. Soon we were lapping almost two seconds better than this morning. Midway through we tried a race tyre to check what pace we had compared to the other riders. Our conclusion was excellent. At the end of the QP we put on a softer tyre to try to lower our time, but it was difficult because there was so much traffic, and I made a small mistake four laps from the end. The important thing is that we have been quick in two sessions. Tomorrow we’ll start from the fourth row, we have a good set up and I am convinced that we can have a good race.”
