SECOND ROW FOR CRUTCHLOW AT SEASON-OPENER IN SPAIN

 

Cal Crutchlow took an excellent second row start in the first qualifying session of the delayed and truncated 2020 MotoGP World Championship at the Jerez circuit in Spain.  The LCR Honda Castrol man will start Sunday’s 25-lap race from sixth on the grid after a hard-fought lap in scorching conditions during qualifying.

The British rider has been on form all weekend, regularly finishing amongst the top positions on board his factory Honda RC213V, and will be hopeful of challenging for the podium in the gruelling race.

The event is set to be brutal affair with temperatures soaring in the Spanish summer sun, and the Sunday’s first of 13 provisional rounds starts at 2pm local time (GMT+2).
