Repeat podium for Roberto Rolfo after hard race at Le Mans. Le Mans France, my 25. Roberto Rolfo again placed his Fortuna Honda on the podium, this time at the French Grand Prix, held at Le Mans. Rolfo was one of the heroes's of the race, after a hard race he was able to overtake his rival Fonsi Nieto, on a last lap full of courage and great value to the team. The French Grand Prix was not a stroll in the park for the Fortuna Honda team and Roberto Rolfo, because they had to work hard to overcome their problems with machine set up on the new RS250RW. All the difficulties did not hinder the progress of the Altadis rider, who had only one day of dry practice, from repeating his success of 14-days.
Third place at Le Mans is a great result for Team Fortuna Honda, more so if we take into account the conditions that limited the possibility of the always-brave Roberto Rolfo.
The Altadis rider doesn't need to say that the French race has been very hard because of only having one day of dry practice. Despite the conditions the team did a lot of valuable work. That's why this podium finish has extra value, because everything did not run like clockwork.
Roberto Rolfo. "We still have a lot of work ahead of us. This third place finish gives us a lot of satisfaction but we have to think how the race developed and the problems w still have o resolve on set up. Honda have promised us new material in the near future, in fact we need more acceleration to be t a really competitive level. Here at Le Mans it has been possible to see the effort we have to make to stay in the slipstream," said Rolfo.
"Having said all that the analysis we can make is that we have lost second place in the championship but the top group are all very close after a complicated meeting for us because of set up difficulties we found in practice," concluded the Fortuna Honda rider.
