Rabat: “I need to draw a line under what’s gone before”

Rabat: “I need to draw a line under what’s gone before”

Reigning Moto2™ World Champion Tito Rabat is determined to get his title defence back on track, as he heads to Jerez for the #SpanishGP.

Although Rabat qualified on the front row for all three of the overseas races, the 25-year-old Spaniard has yet to finish on the podium this season after problems in Qatar and Argentina. A fourth place in Austin is his best result so far this year, but the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider has his sights set firmly on the podium this weekend at his home Grand Prix in Jerez, the track at which he claimed his first ever race win in Moto2™ just two years ago.

Tito Rabat:
“I’ve been on the pace and competitive since the start of the season but, for one reason or another, I didn’t get the results we were expecting in the overseas races. Now, as we head to Spain for the first of the European races, I need to draw a line under what’s gone before and start again this weekend. We’re only three races in and the season is long. Yes, we’ve made more work for ourselves, but every race we improved the bike and we were fast; and being fast is the most important thing. If we can qualify well and I can avoid any problems at the start of the race then I think it’s possible to fight for the podium again this weekend in Jerez.”
