Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Moto3 continue season with French Grand Prix

Estrella Galicia 0,0 riders Sergio Garcia Dols and Ryusei Yamanaka will face the tenth round of the Moto3 World Championship next weekend, when the French Grand Prix gets underway at the legendary Bugatti circuit in the town of Le Mans.

Garcia Dols took a step forward two weeks ago in Barcelona, fighting for the podium until the end of the race. Yamanaka made a strong fightback that took him from 26th on the grid to 15th at the chequered flag.

The first Free Practice sessions for the French GP will take place on Friday at 9am, with the 22-lap race scheduled for Sunday at 11:20.

Sergio García Dols (16th in the World Championship with 32 points)

Sergio Garcia Dols reaches the tenth round of the year fresh off a 4th place finish at the last race in Barcelona, where he crossed the finish line just 2 tenths behind the winner.    

Last year at Le Mans, the Spaniard entered Q2 for the first time, going on to set the tenth fastest lap in that session -although he would start from 22nd on the grid due to a penalty. He made up ground at the beginning of the race but a crash at Turn 7 brought his Sunday to an early end.

“I feel motivated, because we took a good step forward at the last race in Barcelona and now we are going to race at Le Mans, a track that I particularly like. However, the weather conditions can be variable there at this time of year, the temperatures will be low and it is sure to rain. I think we are on the right path and we can be competitive.”

Ryusei Yamanaka  (22nd in the World Championship with 13 points)

Two weeks ago, Ryusei Yamanaka had another Grand Prix in which he made evident improvement. He lowered his lap times from session to session and, starting from 26th on the grid, finished 15th in the race after gaining eleven places.    

The Japanese rider has brief experience at the Le Mans circuit due to his participation in the French round of the FIM CEV Repsol, where he started 9th in the Moto3 Junior World Championship and finished 32nd after a crash on the fourth lap.

“I know the Bugatti circuit because I have raced there once before. It is a normal circuit and not among my favourites, but Le Mans has some sectors that are very enjoyable for riders The weather tends to be unfavourable and that makes it a bit less fun, but it's a question of adapting, properly warming up the tyres and managing each moment correctly.”
