Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Tito Rabat added to his world championship score card with a determined 14th place in today’s sun-kissed Austrian Grand Prix.

Showing growing confidence with his Honda RC213V after his best qualifying performance of the season, Rabat rode a controlled race before battling rear grip issues over the final laps. He finished just 0.8s behind Loris Baz in thirteenth

A sell-out crowd of 95,000 attended the first motorcycle Grand Prix held in Austria since 1997.

Tito Rabat: 14th
“I am happy because we made a small but crucial step forward here with the set-up, which gave me more confidence. For much of the race I was on the pace with some very good riders including Pol Espargaro, Danilo Petrucci and Cal Crutchlow. Over the final laps I lost some rear grip and that was difficult to manage. I went long on the brakes trying to stay ahead of Baz in the final laps and it was frustrating to lose that battle. Overall a positive weekend, I scored points, no problems with the front and did a good qualifying and race.”
