John continues good Le Mans pace despite 19th grid slot

 In News


John continued his hard work in today’s sessions at Le Mans, and despite being classified in 19th in Qualifying is showing a very good pace, with many riders separated by very little time and having spent much of the session a lot further up the field, only getting caught up in traffic towards the end when crucial fast laps needed to go in.

Nonetheless, John is happy with progress and with his overall pace and performance and is focused on making sure he is well prepared for the possible rain that is forecast for tomorrow.

John said…
“Today we made big improvements to my riding and also the bike. I think we made really good progress and are now much closer to the front! It’s nice to be not too far away from pole position lap time wise but the lap times are just so close that I finished a disappointing 19th! I had good pace throughout the session and for the majority was inside the top 10 but it was in the last 5 minutes when it counts the most that I got caught up with some slower riders and started to make some mistakes.
My start is going to be really important tomorrow because I am confident I can run with the group fighting for top 10 if all goes well on the first few laps.
The forecast is rain for tomorrow and it’s just started now so tomorrow could be very interesting. I’ll need to work hard in warm up to try and get a wet setup and then see what the weather does for the race!”
