It was an up-and-down Sunday for Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 (FPS Automation branded) with both Jeremy Alcoba and Gabriel Rodrigo in the points at the end of the third-last event of the season at Valencia.
Alcoba, who was starting from 28th place on the grid, did well in getting up to speed quickly despite a poor start and put together an impressive comeback that ultimately saw him eighth at the line. The Spanish rider – who is racing with a neck issue – will have to work on his Saturday performance.
Opposite path for Rodrigo, who lost ground from the front-runners in the early laps despite staying in position for a good result. An overtake on Suzuki – with the latter finishing in the gravel – was considered a bit too much by race direction who inflicted a long-lap penalty to Rodrigo, who was 15th at the chequered flag.
The Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 duo will have another chance for gold in a week’s time at Cheste in the #ValenciaGP
