Day of work for the NGM Forward #Racing Team at #Silverstone

The NGM Forward Racing Team was back on track for the first day of practices of this weekend’s British Grand Prix. Aleix Espargaro and Alex De Angelis focused on the bike set up on the technical and fast Silverstone racetrack.

Fifth this morning, Espargaro struggled in the afternoon to find the right feeling with his Forward Yamaha and finally closed the FP2 in 10th place with a lap time of 2’03.468.

It was a positive start for team mate Alex De Angelis, who made a good step forward over the course of today. 17th in the morning with a lap time of 2’06.333, Alex could improve his lap times and pace in the afternoon session of 2 seconds. With a lap time of 2’04.411, Alex finished in 15th position.

10th / 2'03.468 / 27 Laps

“Silverstone is a technical and demanding track and we suffered more than what we expected. Due to the cold temperature, we used the soft tyre but I couldn’t find the right feeling. I struggled also with the front as I cannot enter fast in the corner as I want. Tomorrow we will continue to work to improve the set up of the bike in preparation of the race”.

“I’m happy of the work done today, especially of the FP2 as I could improve my lap times and my pace. Today we used the hard tyre and the feeling was positive from the beginning. Silverstone is a technical track, it has a bit of everything and it’s fun to ride here with a MotoGP machine. I’m confident to make another step forward tomorrow".
