About
The Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto

The Jerez track has been the backdrop of the first European MotoGP round for years, and therefore a popular destination for European race fans who cannot wait for their own home round. At 4.4 kilometers-long, it is by far not the longest track on the calendar, but the flowing nature allows for spectacular overtaking, including the tight last left-hander before the 600-meter-long straight toward the finish line.

Last year, Danilo Petrucci just missed out on the podium at Jerez, taking the honor of best-placed Ducati in P4 after starting 9th on the grid. A solid result to build on for our Italian rider, who will take full advantage of his Factory rider status to make it onto the podium this year.

A challenging overseas start didn’t overheat Danilo, who claimed three consecutive P6 results to become mister consistent before aiming higher during the European rounds of 2019, proving to be a solid value for the Factory Ducati MotoGP squad and helping them to take the provisional top spot in the constructors standings.

About this page

"Finishing sixth, given all the issues we encountered during practice, can be considered a good result for us here in Texas. Clearly, I want to do better, but we still learned some important things, keeping fifth place in the standings. It's been a long, grueling race. At one point, I was recovering ground on Dovizioso and Morbidelli and I even thought I could catch them, but the front locked a couple of times and I preferred not to take too many risks.”

Danilo adds, “At any rate, I'm happy. My team did a really fantastic job. This wasn't a friendly track for us, but I think we managed to obtain the best possible result today. Now, we'll head to more favorable circuits and I can't wait to be back on track at Jerez and start the European leg of the season."

With three registered REV’IT! riders in the Moto2 class, Austin became a solo gig for our Dutch rider, Bo Bendsneyder. It showed it wasn’t extra pressure, after Bo claimed a class best result in P13, knowing there’s more in store for him in the intermediate class.

Back on track in Europe, our Moto2 lineup will be back in full force, and the returning Steven Odendaal and Augusto Fernández plan to come back swinging at a track they both know very well.

About this page

“My start was not so good, but I was already back in my own position, around sixteenth, in the first corner. In the first round, I had to avoid some crashes, but I didn’t lose much with that. Together with Aegerter, I was able to ride to a good pace and together we were able to close in on the group that fought for eleventh place.”

Bo continues, “On the straight, we lost a little too much to get to that eleventh, twelfth place, but in the last lap, I was still able to take thirteenth place. I have nothing to complain about. I am happy with the race, happy with the points and happy with how the weekend went. We have proven again that we really belong in the points.”

Following up a victory with a P2 isn’t too bad, especially considering Jaume Masià took the Moto3 World Championship lead after finishing second at the Austin GP. Fellow Moto3 REV’IT! rider, Lorenzo Dalla Porta, got pushed back in the tumultuous pack close to the finish line.

Dalla Porta kept his cool and wisely went for the points when crashing was around the corner. He’s now sitting tight in P3 in the championship standings.

About this page

“The race was very complicated, honestly. I thought that I missed the front group at some point, but I decided to push really hard. When I found myself behind Rodrigo, I thought it was possible to get closer to the front, and then… wooow! Simply amazing.

Jaume adds, “It was a great day for me and for the team. Too many things at the same time, so I am happy to think about everything at home. I am ready for Jerez; I love the track and I am ready to fight!”

About this page

“The weekend wasn’t easy, but after P11 in the qualifying, I was looking forward to the race as I wanted to make up some positions after the start. However, Moto3 is close racing and in the end the result was not what I hoped for.”

“Still, we took a few points for the championship, which is important, as the season is still long. Now, I am looking forward to racing in Europe, and to put in a good result in Jerez where I didn’t finish last year.”
