Third Step of the Podium for Alonso. Fermin Closes the Spanish Grand Prix in P10

At the Circuito de Jerez-Ángel Nieto the CAG SpeedUp team and the unstoppable Alonso Lopez score the second podium of this 2023 that has just begun, while Aldeguer closes the top 10 of the Spanish Grand Prix despite the long lap penalty in the middle of the race.

In his first Moto2 race on the Spanish circuit, the number 21 of the team once again demonstrated that he has the right determination to establish himself among the top riders of the world championship by conquering the third step of the podium. When the traffic lights went out, in a few corners Alonso and his Boscoscuro bike were already third behind Lowes and Acosta who immediately demonstrated that they have a superior pace. The CAG SpeedUp rider didn’t let himself be intimidated and with a constant and fast rhythm he excluded any possibility of an attack from behind maintaining the third position until the checkered flag in which he sealed his second podium of the season.

Aldeguer’s Sunday was complicated by a long lap, but despite the penalty, the number 54 managed to finish the Spanish Grand Prix in the top ten. From the fifth row of the starting grid, Aldeguer made a good start, recovering four positions. With less than ten laps to go, his race was hampered by the obligation to perform a log lap for having exceeded the track limit several times. However, Fermin was very skilled at doing it and in a few laps he took the tenth position which he maintained until the finish line.

ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 3rd  

“I am very happy with how the race went and above all I am aware that I gave my best at such an important moment of the season. I am satisfied with having made the first Spanish podium of this 2023 and I will continue with my fantastic team to work on my Boscoscuro. As always, we can’t wait to get to work to get ready for the next race.”

FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: 10th 

“Despite the result, I’m happy with the race pace because, with the way we lapped, we could have fought for a more advanced position in the standings. We still achieved a positive result finishing in the top 10 even after taking a long lap. We will work along the same line and in the same style with the team, obviously improving a few small details to better face the next race.”
