Barbera: “We have been much closer to the factory bikes”

Hector Barbera took his third Open class victory of the season at the #SpanishGP and feels he has made a big step forward.

It was a perfect weekend for Hector Barbera and the Avintia Racing team in the Spanish Grand Prix with a new victory in the Open Class in front of more than 122.500 Spanish fans.

He got two more Championship points today, but even more important is the fact that he was able to finish the race fighting for the Top Ten in a group with Hernandez, Petrucci, Viñales and Redding, all of them riding factory spec machines.

Hector Barbera:
“I’m really happy for this new victory in the Open Class, but even more because we have been much closer to the factory bikes and I think that this weekend we have made a big step forward. After Argentina where we had more problems, today we confirmed our level. The team worked really well during the weekend and we are just where we wanted to be. We made our job but tomorrow we have a very important test and we will try to improve the bike even more ahead of Le Mans. The championship is long and we have to continue in this direction.”
