Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 set sights on good result at Misano16/09/2020
Raul Fernandez and Kaito Toba have a second chance at the San Marino track, where the Emilia Romagna GP will be held this weekend.
Raul Fernandez experienced misfortune at Misano in the San Marino Grand Prix race, in which he was taken out on the first lap. The Spaniard showed, however, that he is in good form, as he was competitive in every practice session. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider currently occupies the eighth position in the overall standings with 51 points.
Kaito Toba made steady progress throughout the weekend at Misano and fought to get into the points in the race, riding as part of the large leading group. The Japanese rider is gaining experience with his KTM bike, improving his feeling every time he goes out on track. He is currently 21st in the World Championship with 12 points.
The eighth Moto3 contest of 2020 will take place on Sunday at 11 am, over 23 laps. Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 have two victories at the San Marino track through Sandro Cortese (2012) and Brad Binder (2016), plus a third place from Jack Miller (2014) and a second position from Miguel Oliveira (2015).

“I would sum up last weekend as bad luck, since up until the race we were doing very well. I hope things go better at this second Grand Prix at Misano. We have the potential and if we keep working like we did last week, we can be fighting for victory this Sunday. Both the team and I will do our best to make it happen.
Having two contests in a row is good because if things don’t go quite right for you in the first one, you have another chance to get a positive result. If you face the rounds with enthusiasm, it is not excessively difficult mentally or physically.”

“Last weekend in Misano was quite tough for us. We had to deal with various difficulties, but finally my feeling improved a lot in the race and I managed to ride comfortably, which was very good. This weekend the objective will be to fight with the group at the front and try to achieve a positive result. We must remain calm and have a positive mindset at all times. Having two consecutive races at the same track is good for us because it represents a new opportunity to improve and continue to progress. We will give our one hundred percent to be up at the front.”
