Anthony West Leaves Argentina In Good Spirits Despite 14th Place Finish

Posted:

QMMF Racing Team rider Anthony West raced to a hard fought 14th place finish at the fourth round of the 2015 Moto2 championship held in Argentina.

West had a good start into the Grand Prix of Argentina and was within the top ten of the hard-fought Moto2 category on the opening laps of the race, but found it tough to match the speed of the other riders in the slipstream battles of the fast Termas de Rio Hondo circuit and finished a hard battle in 14th position.

Even though the 33-year-old Australian had aimed much higher than that, he still left the track in good spirits, since he and his team had made further progress with the base set-up of his Speed Up bike.

‰ÛÏI am happy with my start and with the set-up of the bike." West stated. "We made some changes from yesterday and they were an improvement.

"The weather was obviously better for us as well, due to the lower temperatures. I made my way up to ninth place on the first couple of laps and I felt quite strong in the corners. But when it came down to racing with the others, I just couldn‰Ûªt do anything because on some parts of the track, I didn‰Ûªt have the speed and I was losing time.

"When I would come up behind the others and pull out of the slipstream, I would get stuck besides them, whereas they could pass me out of the slipstream quite easily. The good thing is that I was behind Luthi for a couple of laps and I was able to confirm our progress in the development of the bike.

"I‰Ûªd like to thank my team, because the bike was set-up well and I felt comfortable. We just lacked some speed!‰Û
