 In Moto3, News


Jorge Navarro, immersed in the battle that ensued in the second race group, finished eighth at Jerez today after fighting with Fenati and Bagnaia for sixth place, while fellow Repsol rider Maria Herrera suffered a crash during the second lap of race in the penultimate corner of the track. Despite a spectacular crash in one of the fastest of the corners of the track, she suffered only a bruised right foot.

Jorge Navarro – 8th – at 11.761 sec.
“I’m happy because I finished the race and it’s my best result yet in the World Championship. That’s positive. What did not go so well was the start and the first laps because I was too cautious, thinking only to finish the race. Some riders started very aggressively and we made contact in many of the corners. So I decided to attack step by step, and gradually I found my pace and, although I saw it wasn’t possible to reach the lead group, I tried to get into the best possible position in the second group. The last few laps were a bit difficult because the tyres were pretty worn and it was difficult to ride comfortably.”
