John sets Qualifying traffic frustration aside to focus on top ten in Argentine race
RTG rider John McPhee was able to repeat his good performance and form from Friday during the Saturday sessions at Rio Hondo.
John achieved and eleventh place in the morning and will start the race from thirteenth position on the grid, his final attempts at flying laps hindered by traffic.
NonethelessJohn knows he has the pace and form to fight in the race and will try and push for a top ten finish to increase his points tally.
“I am not very happy with the qualifying. We had a good base and I felt comfortable with the bike. At the end, when I wanted to push for a fast lap, everything was feeling good, but unfortunately there were too many riders in front of me and I had no other option than to close the gas. For tomorrow I’m optimistic. We have a good setup and I know I can make up some position. So we will see what happens.”
