Moto2 Silverstone: Kenny Noyes Report

Moto2 Report

After working with different setting on Saturday it seemed this race could be similar to Qatar where he fought his way through the field.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case because after completing four laps the bike was losing grip and began to slide in every corner. At the end of the race Kenny crossed the line in twenty-first place.

After today’s race there was no time to rest since this Thursday is the first free practice for the GP of Assen. There Kenny will continue working together with the Jack & Jones by Antonio Banderas team in order to find the ideal settings which will allow him to once again battle for a position up front.

Kenny Noyes (21st, fast lap 2’11.349) says: ¨I got a good start getting behind Elias, Canepa and Gadea. I thought I could run at their pace, even that I had a quicker pace than them, but on the fourth or fifth lap I started to lose grip and I was unable to keep their pace.”

“The complicated part of the Moto2 class is that we all have the same tires and engine, so you have to find a setting that allows you to maximize the tires´ full potential.”

“We know we can be up front, but we have had two difficult races at tracks that have fast curves and are pretty similar in respect to settings.”

“We leave Silverstone knowing that we could have done better, but we know where we have to improve and next Saturday in Assen we are going to give everything we’ve got to be back up front.”
