Barbera: “I have to work towards improving my first lap”

Barbera: “I have to work towards improving my first lap”

Hector Barbera recovered from a bad first lap to take the Open class victory at the Indianapolis GP and extend his lead in the standings.

Barbera made a good start, but in the second corner he was pushed off the track and he lost many places. But the Avintia Racing rider did not give up and lap-by-lap caught his rivals to achieve one more victory in the Open Class.

Barbera (20pts) now leads the Open standings by 6 points from Loris Baz, with the Frenchman making his return at the Czech GP.

Hector Barbera: “It was a hard race because with this high temperatures the tyres suffered a lot, and in addition, someone touched me in the second turn, so I saw myself at the back once again. I have to work towards improving my first lap, because in the last few races I had to recover and physically, this is very demanding. Positive is that the team did a great job over the weekend. We were first in qualifying, first today, we added one point in the standings and we still lead the Open Class. Today was also a special victory, as it’s my sister’s birthday. We love each other very much and she is a very important person in my life. This was the best possible way for me to give her a present.”
