Grand Prix of Valencia: Saturday
Alright, we are getting to the end! We’ve had a sunny and interesting Saturday at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, marked by some specific moments:
This morning both Le0pard riders had to push as due to bad weather and tricky conditions yesterday on track, today they needed to set a better lap time during the FP3 to secure a spot in Q2.
At the end of the session, results allowed Dennis Foggia to be straight in Q2 while Xavi had to go through Q1.
Spaniard Artigas did a great job and managed to have another chance at the most important qualifying session.
After running wide, Xavi Artigas couldn’t start the bike again and had to quickly run to the box. Fortunately, he arrived on time to go out for the last attempt.
Finally, Dennis Foggia secured the 7th spot of the grid and Xavi Artigas the 17th.
Let’s keep working and let’s enjoy the very last race of the 2021 season!
Dennis Foggia, 7th
“I’m happy with the Q2, I’ve been very fast and I’ve set the lap time without any reference. I can’t wait to enjoy tomorrow’s race, I’ll give my best!”
Xavi Artigas, 17th
"I managed to get to Q2 but when I ran wide, I couldn’t start the bike again and in the end, I only did one decent lap. I’ve tried my best but unluckily I will start from the 17th spot tomorrow. I’ll fight to overtake and enjoy the race as much as possible!"
