Tito Rabat lines up 20th on French GP grid
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda rider Tito Rabat has made impressive progress over two days of practice and qualifying and will start 20th despite being slowed on his final qualifying lap by another rider.
Rabat’s best time improved by almost two seconds as he came to grips with the demanding Le Mans circuit to post a qualifying time of 1’34.348.
Sunday’s race is the fifth round of the MotoGP championship with a capacity crowd of over 100,000 fans expected at the 4.2km Bugatti circuit.
Tito Rabat: 20th – 1’34.348
“My first qualifying run was very good and I was happy with this for my first time in MotoGP at Le Mans. On the second run I tried to go faster and had a clear track but then came across some traffic that slowed my rhythm. Sometimes this can happen so now I am just focussing on a strong race and making up some positions.”
