Alonso Lopez and Sergio Garcia affected by raceday crashes at Misano
Estrella Galicia 0,0 Moto3 riders are unable to finish the San Marino GP race, falling after promising starts.
Alonso Lopez and Sergio Garcia contested the San Marino GP on Sunday at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Garcia suffered a crash on the opening lap, whilst on the next time around it was Lopez who was forced to retire under similar circumstances.
Mostly clear skies and temperatures of 33ºC on track greeted the pair for the 23-lap race, which was eventually won by Japanese rider Tatsuki Suzuki.
The Estrella Galicia 0,0 Moto3 duo will be back in action on September 20th, for the first Free Practice session for the Aragon Grand Prix.
“On the one hand I’m satisfied with the work we did, which led us to make a good start in the race, but at the same time I feel very upset -because I think that without the crash we could have had a good race and been in the first or second group. It was a shame about the crash when I was overtaking Kornfeil; I lost the rear.”
“I made a good start, gaining several places, but then I crashed at Turn 8. I suddenly found myself on the ground, without warning; it was all very confusing. I hope to have a good race in Aragon that compensates for this bad result.”
