Carlos Cano gets his first podium in Moto4

H43 Team Nobby finishes the round of the Spanish Superbike Championship with very good sensations and podiums in all categories

H43 Team Nobby finishes the weekend in Navarra with good results in both categories. After the races on Saturday, the highlight of Sunday has been the young rider Carlos Cano.

After the first race on Saturday marked by bad luck, the H43 Team Nobby rider was able to recover in the second race and got a good second place in the Moto4 category. The rider from Murcia started from eleventh position and, after a good start, managed to get into the front group, where he maintained a great pace to finish on the podium leading at all times the group in which he was located.

This result was very special for the young rider after the crash he suffered the day before. After a great job from the whole team, Carlos Cano was able to get his first podium in Moto4, which allows him to place fifth in the overall standings with 42 points.

Carlos Cano“I felt very good with the bike, little by little we have been improving and in the end the feeling has been very positive. I’m very happy for my first podium in Moto4, now it’s time to keep fighting in the next race”.

On the verge of the podium in Supersport

After the great result achieved in the first race by the H43 Team Nobby, this Sunday the team could not repeat on the podium, but maintained a good level of racing. Simon Jespersen has been fighting for the podium during the whole race, but finally he could not get the third place and finished in the fourth position. With this result, the Danish rider is second in the overall standings with 58 points.

 

 

Joan Díaz finished the race in sixth position. After yesterday’s podium, the Catalan rider went out on track with the aim of continuing to progress and completed a very physical race at a high level. The H43 Team Nobby rider is still in the top ten in the overall standings of the Supersport class, in seventh place. 

The rest of the Spanish team riders were also able to finish the race, Juan Rodriguez was fifteenth and Davide Fabbri twenty-first. Both riders had some problems, but they are already thinking about the next race in Aragón with the aim of solving them.

 Simon Jespersen“The second race was very fast. Even though I didn’t finish on the podium I am very satisfied with my performance. For this second race we found some things that allowed us to be up there with the top guys. The first sector was the area where I lost the most time during the weekend, but today we found a solution that helped me to improve in that area. As it was such a fast race I suffered a bit in the final part with the rear, so I tried to manage the race as well as possible, and also to get some important points for the championship. Today I couldn’t get on the podium, but I’m sure that for the next races I’ll be ready again, we’ll keep working”.

Joan Díaz“It was a very hard race, much harder than Saturday. Today we had the advantage of starting in fourth position and that made us approach the race in a different way because we didn’t have to come back. From the first moment there was a very hard pace, I tried to get close to the front, but they had a great pace and little by little they got away from me. In the end, I held on to fifth position until I finally finished sixth, which is not a bad result. We are already thinking about the next race to take that step forward that will allow us to fight to win the race”.

 

 

Juan Rodríguez“The race didn’t go as we expected, we had some problems with the brakes, with the pressures… but we hope that in the next race things will go better and we can improve. I still believe that I can be at the front as I was in Jerez. We have to forget about this weekend and think about the next race”.

Davide Fabbri“This weekend has to be seen as a learning experience because I had to do a different kind of work beforehand. The crash in Jerez limited me a lot because I couldn’t do any training. I am not happy with the result, but I am grateful to the team for the work they have done. I’m sure I’ll improve and we’ll do better in the next race”.

Manuel Hernández“The weekend has been very positive, it’s true that finishing today with worse results than yesterday in Supersport seems to leave a bad taste in your mouth but, analysing the weekend, the sensations are very positive. It’s been a long time since we’ve had five bikes in the box and all of them have managed to finish the races, and we’ve also finished on the podium in both categories. We are in the fight and we are very competitive, which is very important for the future and above all for our own motivation. For me, as the most experienced person in the team, it has been a very positive weekend with a lot of hard work and the most important thing is that we are becoming more and more consistent. The incorporation of Carlos Cano this season has been very good, he is giving us a lot of joy and I am sure he will continue to give us a lot more for a long time. Finally, as always, I would like to thank all the sponsors, all the team’s workers, the families of the drivers, my family and in general everyone who sacrifices themselves to make all this possible”.

The next ESBK race will be held at Motorland, Aragon, on the weekend of 19th and 20th June.
