EDGAR PONS WILL GO OUT TO THE LAST ROUND OF THE FIM CEV WITH THE AIM TO WIN

The AGR will have four riders to finish the year, with the one-time appearance of American Brandon Paasch in Moto3

The Argiñano & Ginés Racing Team rider Edgar Pons took again the pole position as he already did in the last round of the FIM CEV Repsol. He was able to control the situation in both Qualifying sessions, with the track quite cold. The 2018 European runner up will try to achieve his fourth win of the season, after his recent participation in the Moto2 World Championship races. Edgar has a good pace and feels confident.

Meanwhile, his team mate Benny Solís will start from the fifth row of the grid with the aim, first to finish the race, due to his physical conditions, but he will also try to achieve his best result of the year. The Californian rider still feels there is not enough grip and does not have the best feeling about the front, so he will try to do some test during the warm up.

Moto2 #57 EdgarPons –Kalex / 1st / 1.35.993: “It was a good Saturday, with four consecutive poles. We’re working well with the team, we have a good set up and we’re doing a good job. Our time is quite good, and it gives me confidence that we can finish the year with a win. I will have to do a good start, push at the beginning and try to build some advantage. Thank you to the team”.

Moto2 #35 Benny Solís –Kalex / 13st / 1.39.235 +3.758s: “During the first session I suffered a lot due to my wrist, but after that we were able to improve our speed. I need to take care of my wrist, but I can stand it and I was also able to adjust my riding and the KTM. In the Q2 it was difficult at the beginning with used tyres, but then I was able to ride in a group and improve my time by one second. We have some ideas to improve the set-up of the bike, let’s see if I can fight for points, why not? Even if I’m far back on the grid, the twelfth is only one second faster than I am. We have two races to learn a lot. Thanks to the AGR for their help”.

Meanwhile, in Moto3, our Basque rider Íñigo Iglesias will go out to get his first points, although his starting from the back of the grid, he has two races to try and score. During the first session, his KTM stopped a couple of times, but the team solved it for the second session. Iglesias is happy with his bike set up and could do a good race.

And American Scott Paasch, a promising 17-year-old rider who finished this year in 5th place of the Moto3 English Championship, will make his debut at the FIM CEV with the Argiñano & Ginés Racing Team. Paasch suffered a subluxation of his left wrist last Wednesday when he was trying, so he will not be in the best shape to compete this weekend. Despite that and his lack of experience, he has done a good job.

 

Moto3 #58 Iñigo Iglesias –KTM / 35º / 1.41.360 +2.333s: “It was quite a productive day, we learnt a lot in both sessions. During the first we had an issue with the bike: a sensor was failing, and I did few laps, and I also crashed. But we’ve all worked hard for the second session and I was able to improve my times. I’m happy because we’re taking steps forward. It was a positive day”.

Moto3 #90 Brandon Paasch –KTM / 31st / 1.41.127 +2.100s: “During the first session I suffered a lot due to my wrist, but after that we were able to improve our speed. I need to take care of my wrist, but I can stand it and I was also able to adjust my riding and the KTM. In the Q2 it was difficult at the beginning with used tyres, but then I was able to ride in a group and improve my time by one second. We have some ideas to improve the set-up of the bike, let’s see if I can fight for points, why not? Even if I’m far back on the grid, the twelfth is only one second faster than I am. We have two races to learn a lot. Thanks to the AGR for their help”.
