Californian Jayson Uribe improved his personal best lap time of Jerez by a second on his way to a well earned tenth in yesterday’s European Moto2 Championship race at Jerez in Southern Spain yesterday.
The #36 rider qualified 13th after improving almost half a second in the final grid deciding session, lining up on yesterday’s grid confident of a solid points haul at the home of the Spanish GP.
17 laps around the 2.75 mile circuit is physically demanding whilst the nature of the Spanish circuit requires the utmost precision, the fast flowing corners catching many established riders out over the years.
A reasonable start saw Uribe maintaining his position before slowing finding his rhythm, eventually crossing the line to add a valuable 6 points to his championship tally.
Yesterday’s result consolidates the AGR Team rider’s 11th place overall within the European Championship with the real possibility of improvement still further by the time the final chequered flag of the season is waved.
Jayson Uribe – 10th: “I’m very happy with how the weekend went. The results don’t show the steps we’ve made as a team and the progress I’ve made as a rider. We’ve improved a lot over 2016, and I’m working hard to keep improving at every track. I was less than 2 seconds off of pole position and over a second quicker than my previous best lap time. I’m excited to get back on the bike in Aragon!”
