 In News

The pre-season tests have come to a close in Qatar for PETRONAS Sprinta Racing’s Moto3 riders John McPhee and teammate Khairul Idham Pawi, who have enjoyed three successful days at Losail International Circuit. Combined with the results from the previous two tests in Jerez, the squad is in a good place ahead of the first race of the year – where they will be hoping for strong results.

John ends the final day of testing, after being consistently quick aboard his Honda NSF250RW, ready for the challenge that racing will bring with improvements made to his machine. Able to enjoy warm, sunny conditions across the entire test, the Scot focused the majority of his work into the final session of the day when conditions were similar to what will be faced in the upcoming race.

John enjoyed 38 laps today and set a fastest time of 2mins 5.636secs, placing him fifth in the day’s standings and eighth across the entire test.

The PETRONAS Sprinta Racing Moto3 team now looks firmly ahead to the first race of the year, which will take place at Losail International Circuit, Qatar, next weekend (6-8 March).
