Tito Rabat in the points before home fans in Barcelona
Before a huge crowd of home fans Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Tito Rabat continued his string of points scoring finishes with a determined 15th place in Barcelona today.
The result comes on the back of two 11th places at the previous races in Mugello and Le Mans and Rabat has now scored points in every race he has finished this season.
Starting from 19th on the grid Rabat struggled for overtaking opportunities in traffic early in the race but made the most of his race pace to pick up the final championship point when he passed Andrea Iannone with two laps to go.
Tito Rabat: 15th
“I would have liked a better result at my home race and I tried 100% but it was not possible. I was feeling more comfortable towards the end of the race and the good thing is today I finished 40 seconds to the winner when last year I was one minute behind, so better by 20 seconds. Each race I have finished this season I’ve been in the points but my problem is having the pace to overtake other riders early in the race.”
