Danny Kent headed in right direction on day one at Sachsenring
It was a good start for the Leopard Racing team this weekend at the Sachsenring. The 3.7km German track is host to the ninth round of the 2016 World Championship, both the Moto2 riders collecting valuable data for technicians while getting to grips with their tyres in the difficult conditions.
It was a day of work for Danny Kent: the British rider took to the highest step of the podium in 2015 and was able to get a positive feeling straight away with his Kalex. The World Champion was able to collect a lot of valuable information on track, helping his technical team to find a path to follow. His 1’26.508 from FP1 earned him 19th overall.
Saturday will open with the third and final free practice session before the afternoon wraps up with Qualifying to decide the grid for the 2016 German GP.
#52 Danny KENT – 19th (1’26.508):
“Our overall position is not where we want to be but this weekend we’re trying to work in a different way. We’ve only used one set of new tyres today and we’ve made some progress on used tyres. I’m happy although the position isn’t great. We’re working in the right direction and preparing better for Sunday.”
