Danny Kent finishes in the points at his home race
At 14:00 o’clock today, the lights of the Silverstone circuit went off to begin the OCTO British Grand Prix, the twelfth round of the season 2016 of the Moto2 class. Danny Kent appeared in front of his fans who came from every part of England to support their champion.
At the start the two riders of the Leopard Racing team were able to defend their positions, fighting in the second group of the race, with 10 riders in a bunch. Initially Danny remained stuck in traffic and losing ground.
Danny Kent was later engaged in a duel with Simon and Cortese for the last place in the points. Contact at the front between Zarco and Lowes, cost the French rider a 30 second penalty: thus Danny Kent, who had crossed the line in 16th place, was able to climb a position and in fact get in the points.
The duo of Leopard Racing team can rebuild quickly, in seven days: this weekend, the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli will stage the 13th round of the season with the Grand Prix of San Marino and Riviera di Rimini.
#52 Danny KENT – 15th:
“This is not the way we wanted to finish our home GP. Of course we wanted a good result but it has been a typical English weekend with the weather. It didn’t help us, especially in practice with only five laps at the start. We needed more track time. We were losing a lot on acceleration and then top speed so it made the job harder. Points after the problem with Zarco. Just need to work hard for Misano”.
