Jerez mission starts positively for Sam Lowes

Friday 22 April 2016

The first European round of the 2016 Moto2 World Championship, the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez, started today in an extremely positive way for Sam Lowes and for the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2: the 25-year-old British rider ended the first day of practice with the fourth fastest time in the combined classification of the two sessions, clocking 1’43”126 which was, however, the second fastest time in the afternoon session, already showing a good race pace.

Sam said

“It was a very good day! We already have a good pace and we worked a lot on the bike with good results, in particular with regard to the suspension. I think that we have something in the pocket for tomorrow and we are very optimistic, we can do very well. The feeling is good, I would say even better than the tests carried out here during the winter: we will continue to work, but I already feel very good!”
