Jack set his best time of 1:57.109 on lap 15.



Pecco Bagnaia
Tomorrow morning I will be back in Italy. Luckily the fracture did not affect the ligaments of the knee so the recovery time will be faster. I'm really sorry because this morning the feeling with the bike was really good. My goal is to be on track for the second race in Austria. I would like to thank all the medical staff, the Clinica Mobile, Pramac team, Ducati and the VR46RidersAcademy for their great support. See you on track soo



Jack Miller
The grip was quite low and the track is very bumpy. We did some change on the bike and now we are in the right direction, the feeling is positive. Everybody is going very fast, but we just had to find the right set up, I’m very confident for tomorrow.

Bulega And Pons Wih Big Margin To Improve Ahead Of Czech Saturday


First day of work for Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 who at the end of today’s two free practice sessions sees their riders in 14th and 24th positions. The quickest of the two was Nicolò Bulega with a time of 2’03.233secs, with the Italian who could have been a lot quicker overall had his time not been cancelled due to a yellow flag situation (crash by Nagashima). With that 2’02.819secs he would have been in a solid top-five position.

Edgar Pons was a little further back in the timesheets as the Spaniard set his quickest lap in 2’03.864, even though the big jump in terms of performance between one session as the other - he was 1.5secs quicker in the afternoon. The Spaniard, who is back at Brno after a few years, had a bit of a hard time to find the right lines on a track that is very different from Jerez, but the goal will be to improve ahead of Sunday.

MotoGP 2020 Round 4 Repsol Honda Team lay the foundations in Brno


Alex Marquez is joined in the Repsol Honda Team garage by Stefan Bradl for the Czech GP weekend as Marc Marquez recovers from injury, the pair gathering good data on the opening day.

The Czech GP marks the start of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship’s first demanding triple-header, but there was no hesitation as the Repsol Honda Team busily got to work. Although conditions weren’t as hot as the previous two races, rising temperatures throughout the day saw the grip levels continue to change on the Czech track.

With Brno among his favourite circuits on the calendar, Alex Marquez was eager to head out and try his Honda RC213V around the 5.4-kilometre-long track. Times were as close as ever in Free Practice 1, the Moto2 World Champion ending the first session in 18th and just 1.2 seconds off LCR Honda’s Takaaki Nakagami who was fastest. Alex suffered an electronics issue early in Free Practice 2, the rookie quickly making his way back to the garage and back out on circuit. Less than half a second split Alex from a top ten finish as the flag came out, the rookie setting a best time of 1’57.688 on Friday.

Aleix Seventh And Provisionally In Q2 After The First Practice Sessions At Brno

Aleix Seventh And Provisionally In Q2 After The First Practice Sessions At Brno


He missed the top 10 by just 36 thousandths after FP1 but, with a magnificent afternoon session, Aleix Espargaró rode his Aprilia RS-GP to a provisional seventh place position. This is a good sign for the start of the Brno weekend, despite less-than-perfect grip conditions that have the techs working hard to prepare for the race on Sunday.

Bradley Smith’s performance is one that needs to be examined in detail, since he was one of the very few who did not attempt a time attack with the soft tyre. His gap behind the leader is therefore understandable in terms of the flying lap, whereas in terms of pace and feeling, the situation is rather solid for the Brit.

Lowes makes flying start in bumpy Brno


Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Sam Lowes was in magnificent form to set the best pace on day one in Brno, with Augusto Fernandez close to being back to his best with a strong top six challenge in both practice sessions.

High ambient temperatures and Brno’s low grip and bumpy surface didn’t stop Lowes from enjoying an outstanding start to the Czech Republic Grand Prix and after setting the fastest lap time of the day in FP1 he was second quickest in this afternoon’s session.

Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 riders start Czech Grand Prix with steady improvement


Sergio Garcia Dols (13th) and Ryusei Yamanaka (21st) are amongst the few to defy a temperature increase to lower their lap times in FP2.

Two Free Practice sessions for the Moto3 Czech Grand Prix took place on Friday at Brno, with the Estrella Galicia 0,0 riders putting in their first laps of the track.

Sergio Garcia Dols set the 13th best time overall for the day with a 2:09.698. Teammate Ryusei Yamanaka was 21st due to his 2:10.007. The fastest rider on Friday was Gabriel Rodrigo (2:08.612).

Free Practice: Rodrigo On Top Form, Alcoba Quick Learner


Another positive Friday for Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 who at Brno - Czech Republic - got to the top of the timesheets courtesty of a Gabriel Rodrigo in scintillating form. On the track where he claimed his maiden pole position (2017), the Argentine rider put his experience and speed to good use by sealing the direct seed to Q2 thanks to a 2’08.612secs lap-time set in the morning.

A bit of a harder time - but expectable - for Jeremy Alcoba, who was 17th overall but only a tenth of a second away from 14th (the last place with direct seed to Q2). The young Spanish rider performed well aboard Honda NSF250RW #52. A little more than a second separates him from his team mate, but he is expected to make big steps forward already from tomorrow, with the FP2 of Grand Prix České republiky that will get underway at 9:00 GMT+2.

MotoGP Back On The Track At Brno In The Czech Republic

MotoGP Back On The Track At Brno In The Czech Republic


The full 2020 MotoGP calendar has riders and teams back on the track just one week after the double race in Jerez de la Frontera, this time on the Brno circuit. The race in the Czech Republic will be the first Grand Prix of a triple-header. In fact, two races will then be held in quick succession in Austria.

The Brno track is part of motorcycle racing history. It has hosted 51 Grand Prix races, second only to the TT of Assen which dominates in the virtual standings with 71 editions. Much has changed over the years from the original road circuit which was almost 14 kilometres long, now downsized to 5.4 km, although still one of the most spectacular and demanding tracks on the calendar.

In the Aprilia camp, the goal is to continue improving the new RS-GP, a project which has shown great potential but needs to be refined. Aleix Espargaró left Andalusia without any satisfaction and is highly motivated for immediate redemption, whereas Bradley Smith (in the points in the two Jerez races) believes that the data collected in Spain could be the key to a good weekend in Brno.

ALEIX ESPARGARO' "The two races in Jerez did not end the way we had expected. The advantage of the long break is that I'm fully charged with positive energy, so I can’t wait to get back on the track. I am confident in the potential of this new bike. The feeling is good, but we still haven't been able to put it all together. The situation at the start of the year obviously didn’t help us, but I will keep pushing anyway and I won’t leave any avenue unexplored." BRADLEY SMITH "On paper, Brno seems not to be the best track for Aprilia, but with this new bike it’s hard to make any kind of prediction. We’ll find decidedly different conditions than Jerez. In any case, the experience gained in the first two races will certainly be helpful. The thing that the new RS-GP seems to be lacking the most is time on the track. We were unable to turn as many laps as we would have needed to because of COVID and that forces us to continue development during the races."

Brno Opens First Tripleheader For Team Kommerling


After a one-week break, which was crucial to recover from the scorching temperatures of Jerez de la Frontera, it is already time to Czech Republic for Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3, with the fourth event of the season taking place at the iconic Automotodrom Brno.

Gabriel Rodrigo will make his return on a track that has not been kind to him last year (he fell in FP2 and inured his right collarbone and pelvis) despite being a venue where he was always fast – and where he scored his maiden career pole position.

All the ingredients are there: a favourable track, a continuing improving performance and a lot of motivation. These are the key factors for Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 who is currently travelling to Czech Republic for the fourth even of 2020.

On one side of the garage, in his rookie year Nicolò Bulega narrowly missed on a front row start and then claimed his so-far best Moto2 result; on the other hand, Edgar Pons has already raced at Brno three times (2015-16-17).
