Efren Vazquez finished in 2nd at the Gran Premio Red Bull de la República Argentina, completing a 1-2 for his Leopard Racing team.
The experienced Spaniard delivered a remarkable performance due to illness today and held off the hard fighting riders for the second step on the podium.
“It was a tough race from the start to the line because I’m physically not in the best condition today. To race with fever for sure is not the best feeling to compete in the world championship. But we did a really good job throughout the weekend and in the end we collected 20 points for the championship. I think to take this points amount from this race is a really good result for us. But most important is to go to the European races with a big points account. I would like to express my thanks to the team because they gave me a really good bike this weekend. I got a really good confidence in it already during all practice sessions and even more in warm up this morning for the race. Now we just need to keep focussed and I already look forward to the next races in Europe.”
