Pol Espargaro made a brilliant start off the line on the KTM RC16 to be 11th before an unlucky crash took him out of the race. It was a fast crash, but he was OK and returned to the garage unhurt.
The race took place in front of 69,000 fans that included the former King of Spain. A total of 129,890 fans attended the race track over three days.
“I tried too much! I had a good chance to be inside the top ten today but you have to try to see if you can be there because we have the tools here at Jerez after the work that the KTM Factory Racing team has done with the engine. I was trying to reward them, give them some points and a position to be happy with, but I tried a bit too hard…but this is racing. KTM want to be inside the top 10, as I do too, but occasionally a small mistake happens.”
