Last round of June’s triple header for GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 who has travelled 630 km north-west from the Sachsenring to settle at the TT Circuit Assen, aka. the good old Cathedral of Speed, for round eight of 2023, the Dutch Grand Prix. Coming from a good weekend in Germany, rookie Augusto Fernandez will be eying points again while Jonas Folger will travel once again to the Netherlands as he continues his adaptation on the GASGAS RC16.
Rookie Augusto Fernandez will be eager to travel to the TT, one of his favorite tracks on the calendar that holds a special place in his heart. Indeed, the GASGAS Tech3 rider took his maiden Grand Prix win in the Netherlands, back in 2019 when he was in his third season in the Moto2™ World Championship. When the paddock returned to Assen in 2021, Augusto finished in third, and last season, year he was crowned Moto2™ World Champion, he took his second win at the Dutch Grand Prix. It is fair to say that the rookie will be heading to the Cathedral of Speed with a positive mindset considering his past results. At the Sachsenring, the number 37 continued to progress, having raced his best Tissot Sprint at the end of which he claimed P14. In Sunday's race, he finished at the doors of the top 10, in eleventh. Without a doubt, he will be hungry for more before heading to the summer break.
After having had the biggest pleasure to be back racing in front of a home crowd at the German Grand Prix, Jonas Folger will travel with the GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 team for the Dutch Grand Prix. The number 94 made significant progress on the RC16 at the Sachsenring, as he continued to close the gap with the rest of the riders. In the Netherlands, his objective will be to try different things to help him feel more comfortable on the bike.
Final weekend of MotoGP™ before a five week-break, so take it all as you can! Another busy end of the week is awaiting the main class, with the action set to start on Friday at 10:45 LT (GMT+2) with Practice 1, followed by the one hour-P2 at 15:00.
