Navarro finishes 8th at home in the #ValenciaGP, Aldeguer 17th
From Valencia, that’s all. The last GP on Spanish soil has just ended, marking the end of the 2021 Moto2 World Championship. The Termozeta Speed Up team reached the finish line of the Ricardo Tormo de la Comunitat Valenciana circuit with the eighth position of Jorge Navarro and the seventeenth place of Fermín Aldeguer.
A difficult, high-level race, with two starts due to a crash in the first laps on the track that forced the direction to stop with a red flag, after the first lights go out, for oil on the track.
At the second start, with only sixteen laps available, Jorge lost a few positions but after a few laps the comeback began. He danced from tenth to seventh position, resisted and closed eighth among the applause of the home crowd and the team, confirming himself in ninth place in the 2021 Moto2 championship.
Solid performance also for Aldeguer at his first home Grand Prix. Gritty and determined, the young Fermín was able to maintain a constant pace throughout the race without making mistakes. P17 at the finish line for team 54, but above all a lot of experience in his pocket for the upcoming 2022 championship.
My last race with the SpeedUp team. It wasn’t an easy race, but I gave my all and got to the end. I want to thank the whole team for the work done in these three years, for always believing in me and for always trying to give me the best. In SpeedUp I have found a great family and great friends and I wish the whole team the best! Thanks so much for everything!
I’m happy with how the race went. I’m sorry there was the red flag because I had a very good start, recovering positions immediately. But we are here to learn and we were allowed some mistakes. I want to thank the whole team and Luca for the opportunity given this year, it was incredible and I’m really grateful to have been able to compete at the end of this 2021 World Championship!
