Cardus just outside the points as he battles to 17th

 In Moto2, News

QMMF Racing Team riders Ricky Cardús and Mashel Al-Naimi had a great start at the Australian Grand Prix and passed several riders in the first few corners of the magnificent Phillip Island track.
Cardús, who was 27th on the grid and in 18th place after the opening lap, was able to maintain his speed and momentum. He gained more ground and positions and battled very close to the point rankings throughout the race to eventually finish in 17th position.

Ricky Cardús – 17º: “Australia was completely new to us and we’re leaving with a lot of experience, in regards to setting and riding. We are improving and I think in the two remaining races we can show that we are stronger and have more confidence. The team has taken a big step forward with my new bike and even though I did as well, there are aspects of my riding that I need to refine; we’ve seen that today at the end when I lost the option to get points. But we are not so far, it’s small details that we need to work out to be competitive.”

Luis Solano, team coordinator: “We are happy today because Ricky rode a very strong race. He started from the 27th position and almost finished 15th. Only on the last few meters, he lost two places again. This is a good result for us even though we still need to keep improving and to get closer to the top. In the last two races of the season, we are aiming for better results.“
