Grande Prémio de Portugal: Sunday

Le0pard Racing completes the Portuguese Grand Prix with a bittersweet Sunday, with Adrián Fernández finishing today’s race in 10th position while Ángel Piqueras crashed on the first lap:

  • Le0pard Racing started the race at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve from the 15th and 19th spots of the grid, on the fifth and seventh rows, with Adrián Fernández and Ángel Piqueras respectively.
  • On a good start to the race, both Le0pard riders moved up some places, with Adrián Fernández sitting in 12th and Ángel Piqueras in 17th.
  • Past the halfway point of the first lap, another rider crashed and clashed with Ángel Piqueras at Turn 9, forcing him to retire from the race.
  • Adrián Fernández continued to push to minimise the gap between himself and the group ahead. The Spaniard struggled as he lost a few positions, but then recovered to sit in 14th place with 8 laps to go.
  • Towards the end of the race, Adrián Fernández pushed hard, overtaking the riders in front of him bit by bit to cross the finish line in 10th position.
  • Following a medical check, Ángel Piqueras has been declared unfit due to a hand fracture.
  • We are already looking forward to getting back on track in three weeks time in Austin. See you there!
”A difficult weekend now comes to an end. I couldn’t give my 100% physically because I’m still a bit sore from the crash in Qatar. Today I just would like to thank the team, because they’ve helped and supported me a lot this weekend. I’m confident we will arrive at Austin in full form to fight for our goals!”
Adrián Fernández
“The weekend didn’t end as we expected. I couldn’t avoid the crash and I couldn’t even finish the first lap of the race. Anyway, if we look on the positive side, the feeling on the bike was great towards the race, and we will continue working in that direction. Now it’s time to rest and recover”
