Blog | Filip Salač racing at the front in Aragon as always

Hello everybody,

I'm going to tell you something about my last race in Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

In Free Practices I was troubled a lot with the front part of my bike.

In Qualifying I was 3rd and I thought that we have to make some changes for the race but it went in a worse way. I didn't feel good from the first lap of Race 1 and I knew that it will be very very hard.

I was always in the top 5 but then in the middle of the race one rider crashed before me and I crashed into his bike because it was in group and we were all very close all. I didn't finish the race so the chance for 2nd place in the championship was over.

In the second race I had a pain in my leg and my head a bit. I was always in the top 5 in the group and in the last lap I was 3rd but one rider overtook me and touch me and I had to go out from the track and I lost 4 positions. I finished the race seventh so I was very unhappy to finish my Rookies Cup racing like this.

I want to say thanks to all for this amazing three years of my racing career. It gave me a lot experiences and a lot speed. Without the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I would not be able to go to the Moto3 World Championship.

So thanks for this opportunity and thanks to all the staff there! I really enjoyed these 3 years of my life with best young riders on the world a lot! I wish good luck to all newcomers and also second and third year Rookies for next season and their future!
