Vital Experience Gained For Nagashima And Teluru Team JiR Web!Ke

Teluru team JiR Web!ke’s new rider – the young Japanese Tetsuta Nagashima has gained vital experience after finishing his first race of 2014. The 21-year-old enjoyed the 20-lap race, and took around seven-tenths of a second off his time from qualifying during the hectic race.

The race itself was won by Esteve Rabat, with Takaaki Nakagami second.

Gianluca Montiron - Team Principal
“This is the first race of the year for us all so I think it’s positive that we finish the race – especially after the crash previously over the weekend. It is all about time on the bike and experience. To see Tetsuta take seven tenths off his qualifying time is a very good point today – so we can see that his race rhythm is not so bad so now we need to try and improve his outright performance over a lap. We also see that he is trying to adjust his riding style. We now look forward to the middle of the season as we know we need to score some points by then, but I think we are satisfied with this result.”

Tetsuta Nagashima - Rider
Best lap: 2m 03.333s
“I’m not very happy with the result to be honest as I could have done better. I know I should be happy to finish as we had a very good start but unfortunately I was pushed into the run-off area on one of the corners with another rider which made me lose a position or so. What was positive was me watching the other riders to see their lines and styles and also my ultimate lap time was much better. I really need to look at changing my riding style to suit the bike, tyres and machine but this first race was very positive. I’m now working towards the next race in Texas where I hope to make a further improvement.”
