Long Lap Fatal for Aldeguer, While López Finishes the Catalan GP in Seventh Place

The Catalan Grand Prix race has just concluded with mixed emotions for the MB Conveyors SpeedUp team. López, after a continuous battle for third place, finished in seventh position, while Aldeguer saw his chance of victory slip away due to a crash.

 

The number 21, starting from seventh position after the penalty given to Gonzalez, immediately placed himself among the top four, fighting lap after lap for the top 3. However, as the race progressed, the goal of the podium became increasingly distant, leading him to cross the finish line in eighth position. However, at the end of the race, Ramírez’s disqualification was announced, resulting in Alonso’s seventh place, allowing him to take home valuable points for the riders’ standings.

The race was much more bitter for Fermín. After taking the lead, he received a penalty for track limits. Once assigned the long lap, the number 54 decided to serve it immediately, but unfortunately, he crashed before he could complete it, ending his run towards the podium.

 

ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 7th

“I am happy with today’s result, even though I didn’t make it to the podium. We struggled a bit from mid-race onwards; a technical issue prevented me from doing more. Now, focus on Mugello!”.

 

FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: DNF

“It didn’t go as we wanted. I led the group for more than half the race and then made a mistake even before completing the long lap penalty. It’s a shame, but unfortunately, that’s racing; anything can happen. Next week we have the Italian GP, and we can’t wait to get on track and show that we are ready”.
