Excellent podium for Aron Canet with 2nd in #PortugueseGP, 15th for Sergio Garcia on debut
Great racing Sunday for PONS WEGOW LOS40 at the beginning of the 2023 season.
After a weekend with good sensations for Canet, today the pupil of Sito Pons started the race from second position. Making a good start, Canet and Acosta have opened a gap over their rivals and have fought for the victory until the last stages of the race. Finally, the PONS WEGOW LOS40 rider crossed the finish line in second position in a great start to the season.
Positive debut also for García. The PONS WEGOW LOS40 rookie rider has completed the whole race, accumulating kilometres and experience on his Kalex and gets the reward of opening his locker and scoring the first point, being the best rookie of the race.
Arón Canet, 2nd, +1.358
During the whole race we were fighting for the victory, until the last five laps when I had the tyres at the limit. We took the smart position, without taking more risks than necessary and scoring 20 good points. It was a good race, a good podium to start the season and we are going to Argentina for more.
Sergio Garcia Dols, 15th, +26.876
Happy to finish the first race in Moto2. There are many things to improve but it’s part of the process. In every outing we have added changes to the bike, we have gone from less to more and we took a point. Now we have to think about Argentina, we are looking forward to it.
