Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS riders Jack Miller and Tito Rabat scored a double points finish in today’s second round of the 2017 MotoGP World Championship in Argentina.
Rabat staged a fast finish to win a close four rider battle for 12th place with just 1.6s covering the group that included Hector Barbera, Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith.
The next race at COTA in Texas will be the third in the opening sequence of flyaway races.
Tito Rabat: 12th
“Before the race it had been a difficult weekend with rain in qualifying, but I felt good in the race with a strong rhythm and I’m very happy with this result. I had a great fight for 12th with a group of four riders and was able to finish ahead of them. This is good for my confidence and I’m confident that with some more improvements to my riding style and a better set up for acceleration we can get the results we know we’re capable of.”
