Elías takes 11th spot for Pramac Team

Sunday, 26 August 2012

Today, in a cool and cloudy Brno, the 22-lap race proved to be a tough challenge for Pramac Racing Team’s Toni Elías, who claimed 11th place during the Czech Republic Grand Prix.

Starting from the fifth row of the grid, Elías had a good start, gaining two places on the first lap moving into 11th position. On lap three, he was able to put his Ducati into 10th place and for the majority of the race he remained in this position, fighting with Abraham and Espargaró. Unfortunately, one lap before the chequered flag, he was overtaken by Espargaró, finishing the race in 11th place.

At the next round, which will take place in Misano Adriatico in a couple of weeks, Héctor Barberá will return to his Ducati after missing three races through injury.

"I’m quite satisfied: I made a good start and I was able to stay with Abraham, De Puniet and Espargaró for the whole race. Unfortunately, I missed the top ten, but I’m happy because I achieved my goal, which was to improve both my feeling and my confidence with the bike, race after race. The Pramac Racing Team did a brilliant job, and I tried to do my best. Thanks to the Pramac Racing crew for this fantastic opportunity!"
