Spanish Round
WSBK 2019   Round 6

Ryuichi Kiyonari and Yuki Takahashi had a tough first race-day at Jerez today, Kiyo finishing seventeenth while Takahashi crashed out at turn 1 on lap 13 of 20, fortunately without suffering any physical consequences.

The Japanese duo had previously qualified for today’s race in nineteenth and seventeenth place respectively.

They now both look forward to another day of action tomorrow when they will strive to improve during the 10-lap Superpole Race at 11.00 and the 20-lap Race 2 at 14.00 local time.   

Ryuichi Kiyonari  23

“I feel sorry for everyone in the team and at home for today’s result which is far from what we are aiming for. I’m disappointed because after the test in Misano we had some setups for the bike to try here that actually helped us make some small improvements, albeit with some ups and downs, during the three free practice stints.

This morning our race pace was at least constant and my feeling on the bike not so bad. Then during the race, I suffered from a lack of grip and also struggled in braking. It was a tough race. Having said that, tomorrow I’ll try again, as I continue to do my best.”          

Yuki Takahashi  72

“The crash was a pity because I really wanted to finish the race and collect as much information as possible for the team. Luckily it was not a hard fall, I lost the front and slipped off at turn one. I’m ok and the bike was not too badly damaged either.

The result aside, one that we’re not happy with us of course, we gained useful experience and tomorrow we will try some big setting changes. I think this is my main goal for the weekend, to work as well as possible on the bike’s setup and to give the engineers as much feedback as possible.”
