Kent: “We lost some points”

Kent: “We lost some points”

A penalty in Misano saw Danny Kent forced to drop multiple places and allowing Bastianini to claw back points.

 

The 2015 Moto3™ World Championship has been all about Danny Kent, the Brit dominating multiple races like never before in the lightweight class. However, it has not been all smooth sailing for the Leopard Racin rider as on several occasions, including the San Marino GP, he has faltered. In Misano, Kent was awarded a penalty for exceeding track limits, which saw his chances of victory evaporate. His closest title rival, Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing Team Moto3), took his first win and was able to close the gap to Kent as a result. But the Brit still remains confident and heads to the Aragon GP focused on the championship.

With a 55-point lead, there’s no need for immediate concern from Kent as he has over a two-race win cushion. The best way to maintain focus and stay on track is by continuing to push at 100% and that’s just what Kent plans to do in the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon. In 2014, Kent scored one of his two podiums of the year at Aragon and he’ll be out to improve on that third place this year.

Danny Kent: “I’m really excited for the upcoming race weekend in Aragon as it is one of my favourite circuits of the year. I was able to achieve a podium there last year and I would like to do the same this Sunday again. We lost some points over Bastianini last time out in Misano, so we need to work hard and try to extend our championship lead further before the series goes overseas. In any case I can’t wait for the start of the Aragon Grand Prix with Friday’s first free practice sessions and to get back out on my Honda Moto3.”
