Rabat: “I ran wide on the last lap”

Rabat: “I ran wide on the last lap”

Home podium at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya for Tito Rabat after last lap battle.

2014 Moto2™ champion Tito Rabat (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) was forced to settle for third place after an error at Turn 10 saw him run wide, allowing Johann Zarco (Ajo Motorsport) to claim victory. Despite the disappointment this marks Rabat’s fourth straight podium finish this year.

Rabat had a strong start to the race and attempted to break away and set his own pace but was unable to establish a gap. The Spanish rider now looks to Assen, a track where he is hoping on continuing his podium streak and improve on his best finish of fourth at the Dutch track.

Tito Rabat: "I made a good start and pushed as hard as I could for the whole race, because I knew how close the chasing pack were. I had a good rhythm and was comfortable at the front, but I ran wide on the last lap allowing both Zarco and Rins past me. There wasn’t enough of the lap left to mount a counterattack, so I had to settle for third. Overall I’m pretty happy with the work we did this weekend and now I’m looking forward to Assen.”
