Petronas talent development rider, Ramdan Rosli went through a miscellaneous outing in round 4 of the FIM CEV Repsol, Moto2 European Championship at the Aragon Circuit, Spain, on Sunday.
In Race 1, Ramdan put on a worthy performance to cross the finish line at ninth in 29’22.305s, compared to his 11th finish in qualifying rounds.
Despite gaining confidence from the first race, Ramdan could not up his performance in Race 2, as rising track temperature played a role in him crashing out with seven laps to go.
“Race 1 was overall good for me. We lacked grip and the front-end was chattering so I decided to maintain the pace. In the end ninth place was a good finish for me,” Ramdan told the Malaysian Insider.
He went on to apologize about race 2, saying he was sorry to disappoint everyone as it was a difficult race with him failing to feel the grip on the bike.
Team manager, Kenny Chua, said, “I know Ramdan’s confidence level is up and finishing the first race in 9th position was really good for the weekend.”
Spaniard Edgar Pons took a double victory at the desert circuit with Steven Odendaal and Xavi Vierge filling up second and third place.
