CARDOSO IN THE POINTS, REGRETS FOR SILVA
After some heavy rain in the morning, the sun came back shining on time for the races of the three categories, on the circuit of Donington Park, England. With his 15th position, Jose Luis Cardoso obtained one more point in the general classification. A satisfaction for the whole Team that really deserved it. Ivan Silva unfortunately couldn't express himself adequately and had to retire himself five laps after the start. The young Spanish was suffering a lot because of the injury on his left ankle from the crash he made yesterday. A real pity after the great practice he had done during the last days.
The next race will be in the 16th July in Germany, on the Sachsenring Circuit.
JOSE LUIS CARDOSO #30 (15th): "To say the truth, I'm glad because today everything went better. During the race, I made my best laptime of the whole weekend and I also improved my rhythm. I had a better feeling with the bike after the modifications we did on its set-up before the race. In the first laps, I was with Ellison, then the performance of my tyres slightly decreased and that's why my rhythm increased. 15th at the arrival, I obtained one point, and this is quite satisfactory. I hope we will go on improving in Germany, my aim is to get more points for the general classification. I really want to thank my whole Team, not only my technical staff but every single member of the Team, because they helped me a lot to get better in a moment of difficulty, demonstrating solidarity and an authentic team spirit".
IVAN SILVA #22 (retired): "It has been a real pity to crash yesterday during the qualifying practice because it really compromised my race. I couldn't finish it and I'm sorry not to have been at 100%, also because Dunlop had worked so well, the material they supplied us this weekend was better than the one we had in Assen and in fact the distance we had from the other riders decreased. The experience in MotoGP has been very positive, I hope to get other opportunities to get more experience and demonstrate my bravery. I want to thank Luis d'Ant
