Best Qualifying Of The Year For Schrotter In Brno

Tech3 Racing Team’s Marcel Schrotter completed a fiercely contested qualifying operation to snare 8th position on the grid for tomorrow’s 20 lap Moto2 race at the Automotodrom Brno. Schrotter began round 11 of the 2014 World Championship with a solid display to 9th in the combined standings yesterday and his perseverance and positive momentum continued today as he rode the Tech3 Racing Team’s exclusively designed and built Mistral 610 around the undulating 5403 metre Czech circuit. After refining the setup of his Moto2 bike, Schrotter closed the session by powering over the line to set a best time of 2’02.684 on his last lap which was less than four tenths of a second from the front row. This result will see the young German start from the third row with this position being his best qualifying performance this season for the Tech3 Racing Team. In the race tomorrow he will seek to consolidate his points tally of 12th place in the World Championship standings and aggressively fight for a top ten finish at Brno.

Meanwhile, Ricky Cardus undertook a hard fought qualifying session to 16th position after enduring a challenging weekend so far in the Czech republic. However, the Spaniard remained determined and worked relentlessly with the Tech3 Racing Team to push onwards and set a best lap time of 2’03.370 around the Brno circuit in this afternoon’s dry session. His persistent efforts to improve his riding style and the Mistral 610 were rewarded as his qualifying time was 1.2 seconds quicker than his morning practice time with his best lap being only half a second from the top ten in the intermediate class. Tomorrow, Cardus who will head the sixth row of the grid, will aim to undertake a rocket start as he intends to gather more world championship points in round 11 of the Moto2 World Championship.

Marcel Schrotter : 8th – 2’02.684Schrotter - Brno - 2014

“I'm truly happy with my qualifying result today as we are finally starting to show the potential of the Mistral 610, even if we have still have some margin to improve. This morning the day began in a slightly difficult manner as we decided to explore a few setup solutions which did not better the behaviour of the bike in the way we would have liked them to. However, the team really helped me to feel confident again this afternoon and we could improve in the areas that we were working on really quickly. Also our race pace is promising so I will aim for the top 10 and try to at least hold my qualifying position.”

Cardus - Brno - 2014

“Overall I am quite pleased with my qualifying performance today as we made some significant positive steps forward from yesterday. I had hoped to qualify higher, but we had some issues that we needed to take care of. Plus I am not a big fan of this circuit and find it quite tricky to ride here. Having said that, I am almost in a points scoring position already on the grid which is a much better situation compared to other races this year. There are still a few small changes which we need to be fixed during tomorrow’s warm up but I am confident that once we solve them, I can charge to a great point scoring finish.”
