Rain disrupts the plans of Team Estrella Galicia 0.0

A heavy storm of rain and wind has forced all present gathered at the Jerez circuit to be more aware of the sky than what was happening on the track, in which the activity has been completely altered by the weather. As Alex Rins has opted to complete a few laps and try some improvements in his KTM teammate Team Estrella Galicia 0.0, Álex Márquez, has remained in the box, to avoid the risks of shooting with the strong wind and rain.

The large amount of standing water on the tarmac, the wind gusts above 30 mph and visibility near zero have been the cause of the track has now been empty for much of the morning. In the first round Moto2 and Moto3 combined, barely half a dozen pilots and ten small category of intermediate have left to ride. Rins has waited until 14:05 pm, in an hour batch workouts exclusively for Moto3 riders, for 15 laps in which he has been able to evaluate some parts that KTM has prepared for this test. The Barcelona rider has stopped the clock at 1 minutes, 58 seconds 765 milliseconds, 283 milliseconds off the fastest of the session, Jack Miller.

Álex Rins
“We wanted to leave in the morning and try some new settings on water, but in the end we decided to wait and see if stop raining. So it has been and we have done quite well. We have been working with new parts KTM has brought us and although we could not improve the time of the last time in water, yes we have been able to bring closer. We are left with the improvements we’ve made to the bike. I am very happy, because both the team and KTM are working very well. “
