The British rider was fastest in both sessions at the start of the Spanish Grand Prix
Jake Dixon completed a great day for the Autosolar GASGAS Aspar Team on a Friday in which Izan Guevara was the fastest in Moto3 and the British rider did the same in Moto2. Dixon had already finished in the lead in the morning session, being the only rider capable of going below 1:42. In the afternoon, Augusto Fernández managed to improve his time, but Dixon was able to find three more tenths to set a final time of 1:41.646. Augusto Fernández and Ai Ogura were second and third today.
Albert Arenas has shown that he continues to take steps forward in the intermediate category with an important sixth position in the afternoon, after having been fifth in the morning. Despite the fact that he has suffered crashes in both sessions, this has not affected his work plan and he feels strong and fast to fight this weekend for big goals.
1st Jake Dixon 1:41.646: “I am enjoying Jerez. This first day we did not have a defined objective, beyond riding and getting back the feeling with the bike. I have been able to follow several riders, the strongest ones, and we are very similar. Having here Nico Terol as a 'coach' on the track has helped me a lot.”
6th Albert Arenas (+0.515): “I feel good, it has been a first day in which we have enjoyed a lot. I feel strong and fast. I've had a couple of crashes without consequences, but I'm happy with how the day went and with the sensations. Tomorrow we will keep pushing and we will finish fine-tuning some things.”
