Tito Rabat qualifies strongly in Texas
Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS riders Tito Rabat and Jack Miller completed their best qualifying performances of the season so far in advance of Sunday’s Grand Prix of the Americas.
Rabat’s qualifying time of 2’05.920 matched his pace and steady improvement during free practice. The Spaniard believes it is a strong platform to continue his points scoring streak from the Qatar and Argentina races despite not maximizing his qualifying pace.
Qualifying at the bumpy and fast 5.513km Circuit of The Americas was run in chilly and overcast conditions with the track temperature 12 degrees cooler than Friday’s hot and sunny free practice.
Tito Rabat: 16th – 2’05.920
“It was much cooler today and we did a very good job in the morning FP3 session and made a lot of progress. But I lost time in the afternoon qualifying, it was my mistake waiting for other riders and I know I need to take more confidence to go alone but it is not easy in this track with such a long lap. But I’m happy with my race set-up and looking to again finish in the points.”
