Positive race for Sam Lowes who earns his first championship points

Monday 22 May 2017

Sam Lowes brought home points for Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, finishing thirteenth after a race that fully confirmed the progress the English rider demonstrated throughout the French weekend.


“Besides the position today, the gap from the top 10 is important, as it has narrowed compared to the last races. Obviously we need to keep improving. The difficulties were foreseeable because we are in MotoGP, but things are moving in the right direction. I felt good in the race. Only toward the end did I feel the tyre wear since I had to stress it more that some of the other riders who were ahead of me. With the tests next week, where we will have a lot to try, I hope that I’ll be able to take another step forward before Mugello, a home race for Aprilia.”


” Sam did well, riding a good race this time in the mix with the others, demonstrating consistent progress throughout the weekend.”
