Blog | Gabin Planques wins his group battle in Jerez

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking back to my first race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Jerez it was
amazing experience!


Thursday we had to get all our stuff and do the track walk with Daniel Ribalta.

Friday we had two free practice sessions of 30 minutes and a qualification of 25 minutes so that I resumed my feeling with the KTM because the week end before I was in Valencia in ETC on a Honda. During the qualification I haven't a good feeling with the bike and for my first qualification in Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I made 19th.


Saturday we had a race of 16 laps, I made a very good start at the first corner I was 12th and I found myself in a group of 5 drivers where I improved my personal times, but in the fight for the 12th place I made a mistake and I lost the group, I crossed the line in 17th.


Sunday in the second race of 16 laps I made a very good start again and I fought with my fellow riders for 17th position and in the end I crossed the line to finish just in front of my competitors to take that 17th place.

Now, focus on the second race of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup at Mugello.

Full gas!
