Gardner qualifies tenth in Catalunya; Kasma twenty seventh
The Australian rider of the ONEXOX TKKR SAG TEAM has scored the tenth best time of the Q2 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya but due to a sanction received after crashing in FP2 with the yellow flag waving he will start from the sixth row of the Moto2 grid. In spite of achieving a best lap time of 1’43.874 which has placed him on the tenth position of the Moto2 grid, Remy Gardner will start from the sixteenth spot of the grid after receiving a sanction for an incident occurred during the FP2. The Australian crashed while the marshals of Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya were waiving the yellow flags and he was penalized with six grid positions back at the starting grid so he will start from the sixth row.
Kasma Daniel will start from the ninth row of the Moto2 starting grid of the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya. The Malaysian rider has achieved a best lap time of 1’45.038 during the Q1 where he has experienced lack of grid in the rear wheel of his Kalex. This laptime has placed him in twenty seventh position.
The Moto2 race will take place tomorrow, Sunday September 27th, at 13:20h (local time) and it will consist of 22 laps.
#87 Remy Gardner | P10 | 1'43.874 | +0.519
"Today wasn’t bad but we expected a little bit more in qualifying, to be honest. Specially after FP3. It was a strange feeling in the afternoon, we didn’t have rear grip compared with the morning. The bike was working good, it felt like the same bike but just lost the grip for some reason and we couldn’t get around this problem. I cannot push 120% right now but we managed to place ourselves in tenth position. Unfortunately, with the six place grid sanction we start sixteenth and I am really looking forward to tomorrow."
#99 Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin | P27 | 1'45.038 | +1.443
"I felt a bit strange riding this bike with this weather conditions, it was difficult to stop the bike. During qualifying, I had problems with the grip in the rear but I tried to manage it. Overall, I am happy with today and ready for tomorrow’s race."
