Blog | Gabin Planques gets his first points in Assen 1

Hi Everyone,

I'm coming back from my third Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race in Assen it was a fantastic weekend on a legendary circuit.

Thursday I arrived at the circuit with my helper and in the afternoon I went to do the track walk with Daniel Ribalta to take my first marks on the circuit.


Friday we had two free practice thirty minutes and a qualifying practice of twenty-five, at the FP1 I learned the circuit and start making the first settings on the bike with Santi then I finished this FP1 at the 19th. And in FP2 i managed to find my marks and make good times and I finished this FP2 at the 19th.

For the qualification I was really excited to make good times and a good position on the grid then I finished this qualification at the 18th with a very good feeling with the bike.

In the first race of Saturday I had a good start the first laps I was at the 14 positions and then after a group of four is a train and I fought and I finished this race at the 13th and I mark my first points of this season.

In the second race on Sunday I did a great start I was 10th in the first lap I found myself in a group of six riders for four laps but every lap I was kidding myself in this group I did not a good feeling with the bike then I finished at the 17th.

Now, focus on next race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Sachsenring.

Full gas!
