Tito Rabat shows fighting spirit in difficult Silverstone race
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Tito Rabat showed his battling qualities in a difficult British Grand Prix at Silverstone this afternoon.
The race was shortened by one-lap from 20 to 19 following an early red flag that resulted from a big crash involving Loris Baz and Pol Espargaro.
Tyre choice for the race was something of a gamble after so much track time this weekend was lost due to cold and wet conditions in yesterday’s practice and qualifying sessions.
Spaniard Rabat opted to race the hard front Michelin tyre and the medium compound rear and he was able to maintain a constant pace throughout the race to claim a hard fought 15th place after a close battle with Alex Lowes and Hector Barbera.
Tito was pleased to eventually salvage a point scoring finish from a difficult weekend and he is now looking forward to tackling one of his favourite tracks in Misano next weekend.
Tito Rabat: 15th
“This weekend has been one of the most difficult of my career. I have found it very difficult to go fast at this fast and technical track but as always I will look to take the positives out of it and I finished the last three races in the points. I felt we have made some progress when it was not easy to do so with all the changeable weather and now I go to Misano looking forward to being more competitive. It is one of my favourite tracks and my goal will be to finish inside the points again.”
