Beto Carrero GP of Brazil Race Report - Rockstar Energy BUD Racing Kawasaki

Dylan Ferrandis was representing the team Rockstar Bud Racing Kawasaki in Brazil, for the seventh round of the 2013 Motocross World Championship. Tenth of the event, the French kid will come back home with some frustration after being stopped by another rider at the start of the Superfinal.

Regular venue for the Motocross GP’s, Brazil and his fans met in a great atmosphere the World Championship riders, who joined for the second year in a row the track of Beto Carrero near the southern cost. Looking like a great Supercross with grandstands all around the artificial track, this GP has been as successful as last year with 25000 noisy and passionate fans that faced the humidity and some rain during the weekend.

Fourth during both practice sessions on Saturday and a third on sunday's morning warm up, Dylan had good expectations for the races. He got on Sunday an amazing start in the MX2 moto to initially hold third place, but a crash pushed him downfield before he put in a strong recovery back to sixth place, only to surrender two places late in the race after he was forced to discard his goggles due to big projections.

For the third and last time of the season the MX1 and MX2 raced together in the Superfinal and once more it was a disaster for the MX2 riders who were unable to compete on this layout with the powerful 450. Dylan was severely handicapped when another rider crashed in his path at the first corner, but despite this handicap he stormed back through the pack to finish seventh in class.


Dylan Ferrandis: “ On Saturday the track was nice to ride, but it was so flat that everyone was going fast and the qualifying race was boring; my start was not so good and I could only qualify fourteenth. In the MX2 race I got a great start and was third in the first corner, and was still fifth when I crashed. I recovered to sixth place again and battled with Tixier, Pocock and Butron until I had to take off my goggles and finished eighth. The start of the Superfinal was a disaster; Coldenhoff crashed and I got his handlebar in my rear wheel! I recovered from last place to ninth, but I was expecting more as I have the speed to be in the top five now. The track was rougher today after the rain, it was much better than on Saturday when they flat it so much that it was impossible to make the difference. I hope that I will have no more troubles at the next GP in France; I enjoyed the track of Ernée, last year at the French Elite I got some good results there and I have great expectations for this race.”
