Moto2: Barry Baltus, two successful days in Jerez
Posted On March 5, 2020
It is in Jerez (Spain) that Barry Baltus got back in touch with the bike that he will be riding on the Grands Prix from the end of the month.
Lhe young man hadn’t ridden this Moto2 since November 27, when he got to know his new team (NTS RW Racing) and his new machine. On Tuesday, the one who will be the youngest driver on the starting grid of the category (he will celebrate his 17th birthday on May 3) completed 70 laps of the Andalusian layout. This Wednesday, he covered the 4.42 km of the track 55 times. But why did he find himself in Spain when at the same time, most of his rivals were filing the bitumen of Portimao in Portugal? “An indirect consequence of the health crisis”, launched the young Hesbignon. “The boss of the team insisted a lot that the team be assembled in full force. It turns out that one of the mechanics is English and, because of the measures taken in his country, he could not go to Portugal. So we set our sights on the Spanish track on which I last rode in November.
