Danny takes superb sixth in Qatar GP qualifying
Beta Tools-Speed Up Racing Team riders Danny Kent and teammate Fabio Quartararo are confident they can race to positive results in tomorrow’s season opening Moto2 race under the Losail International Circuit floodlights in Qatar.
Kent and Quartararo encountered lack of rear grip on a frustrating FP3, with both unable to show their full potential in a difficult and very hot session.
In the afternoon qualifying, the British rider managed to improve the bike setting with his crew scoring the sixth position and he was able to dramatically improve his lap time during the session stopping the chrono at 2’00.965.
DANNY KENT #52 – 6th in 2’00.965
“I am happy with qualifying in p6 but also little bit frustrated because the first exit we had a bad rear tyre which wasn’t able to go fast with, either way I’am happy and feeling very confident for tomorrow’s race. I have a great feeling with the bike so a big thank you to my group and the team. We will push 110% tomorrow for a good result!”
