Spanish GP Report
This weekend we were at the fourth MotoGP round in Spain, racing at Circuito de Jerez.
On Friday, we received a warm welcome with 34 degree weather conditions. Scott Ogden thrived on the first day around the track, working on his race pace in the afternoon. Joshua Whatley struggled with his confidence on the first day, but as the weekend progressed, he gained the confidence he needed to reach his best result.
Qualifying day was not too hot to handle for Odgen as he advanced straight through to Q2 for the first time this year. He ended his qualifying session in 11th place. Whatley had a tough time, but he managed to qualify in 27th place.
Odgen had his race at the back of the second group on track. His race pace was far stronger than last year and finished just four seconds behind the leaders. He crossed the line in 12th place. Whatley stayed calm and had a steady race. He also improved his personal lap time around the Jerez circuit, which shows his improvement. He ended his weekend in 24th place.
We continue to work hard and celebrate the small victories. The French Grand Prix is next on the calendar, and we look forward to racing in Le Mans.
