Learning Experience For Tetsuta At Indianapolis

Tetsuta Nagashima got more experience under his belt during another intense Moto2 race, this time at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the USA.

He struggled to match his qualifying performance but despite a collision still managed a final position less than 40 seconds from the eventual race winner. The Teluru team JiR Webike Moto2 rider now departs immediately for next weekend’s race in the Czech Republic of Brno, where he hopes to make further improvements in a bid to get a points finish.

At the sharp end of the field Mika Kallio took the win in a two-part race when the first part was stopped after an incident at turn 10 on lap four when Mattia Pasini crashed. On the restart Mika was able to pull away and win from Maverick Vinales and Dominique Aegerter. Series leader Esteve Rabat finished fourth.

Tetsuta Nagashima, Teluru team JiR Webike’s rider: best lap 1m 39.048s

“The weekend was not easy for me as usual, but I believe that I had made constant improvement during the weekend and to be honest, as the race became shorter because of the red flag, it had made things a bit easier as I was not sure about the rear grip level of the last few laps. My start during the second part of the race was not so bad, and I could ride aggressively with the group of the riders ahead without any problems. I could follow them at most of the corners except the three corners which I'd been having problems with through the weekend but I was able to keep consistent pace until I hit Gino Rea who had a gearbox problem, which unexpectedly reduced his speed. As I was just behind him, I had nowhere to go, so I could not avoid hitting him and my front wheel got damaged. From there I went backwards due to this accident but I still tried to catch up the group ahead but it was not possible. It was little bit disappointing, but I now clear my mind and will be ready for the next weekend in Brno.”
