 In MotoGP, News

After three races aboard the White and Green Ducati, Toni Elias completed his adventure with the Pramac Racing Team. Today, in a cool and cloudy Brno, the 22-lap race proved to be a tough challenge for Toni, who gave his maximum effort to claim 11th place during the Czech Republic Grand Prix.

Starting from the fifth row of the grid, Toni made a good start, gaining two places on the first lap and achieving 11th position. On lap three, Toni was able to put his Ducati into 10th place and for the majority of the race he remained in this position, fighting with Abraham and Espargaro. Unfortunately, one lap before the chequered flag, Toni was overtaken by Espargarò, finishing the race in 11th place.

The Spaniard ended this weekend with a positive result that showed the steady improvements that he made during this adventure. At the next round, which will take place in Misano Adriatico in a couple of weeks, Héctor Barberà will return to his Ducati after missing 3 races.

Francesco Guidotti – Pramac Team Manager: “Toni is a fantastic person. He is always helpful and professional and he worked with us with an impressive devotion. I hope he will find a great team to ride with to show his potential. Thanks Toni, from all the Pramac Racing Team”.

Toni Elias “I’’m quite satisfied: I made a good start and I was able to stay with Abraham, De Puniet and Espargarò for the whole race. Unfortunately, I missed the top ten, but I’m happy because I achieved my goal, which was to improve both my feeling and my confidence with the bike, race after race. The Pramac Racing Team did a brilliant job, and I tried to do my best. Thanks to the Pramac Racing crew for this fantastic opportunity!”

Marco Rigamonti – Track Engineer Pramac Racing Team – “We are satisfied, more than we expected after yesterday’s difficult qualifying session. We lowered our lap times, improving a lot, especially during today’s race.”
