APRILIA ON THE SIXTH AND SEVENTH ROW WITH BRADL AND BAUTISTA IN THE LE MANS QUALIFYING
A race that promises to be rather heated will end the MotoGP weekend at Le Mans, a track that has proven to be demanding for the RS-GP with Bautista and Bradl having some difficulties getting its power onto the tarmac.
For this reason testing continued once again today in the Aprilia camp on various setup, chassis and electronics solutions, focusing especially on improving the feeling for the riders in the acceleration phase. Stefan Bradl stopped the clock with an encouraging thirteenth time in FP4, the last free practice session before qualifying, a positive sign for the race.
In qualifying, the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders placed on the sixth row with the seventeenth best time (Bradl) and in the nineteenth spot on the seventh row of the grid (Bautista). These are starting positions that, in any case, do not affect Stefan and Alvaro's ambitions, highly motivated to bring home the best possible result in the race.
