Bad luck meets good fortune for H43 Team Nobby in the Supersport class

Despite all the setbacks, H43 Team Nobby managed to overcome the adversity and was competitive throughout the weekend

Friday’s free practice was marked by rain and difficult weather conditions at the Ricardo Tormo circuit. The H43 Team Nobby riders, due to the weather, were unable to complete the two free practice sessions of the day. In FP1, the most outstanding rider was Simon Jespersen, the Dane was competitive and managed to be among the top ten riders in the Supersport class. In FP2, only Jespersen and Juan Rodríguez were able to get out on track.

In Saturday’s qualifying session, all H43 Team Nobby riders improved their times from free practice. Luck was not on the side of the Spanish team, Simon Jespersen had a technical problem at the beginning of the session which prevented him from fighting for pole position. Thanks to the good work of the team, the Dane was able to go out on track and finish fifteenth. In addition, Juan Rodríguez finished thirteenth, Joan Díaz fourteenth and Davide Fabbri twenty-first.

In Saturday’s race, H43 Team Nobby was again fighting for the top positions in the standings. Simon Jespersen had a good performance throughout the race, the Danish rider managed to overtake several rivals and, after a great comeback, finished fifth. For his part, Joan Díaz finished twelfth, the Catalan rider was very consistent throughout the race. In addition, Juan Rodríguez finished sixteenth and Davide Fabbri twentieth.

Bad luck struck the H43 Team Nobby again in the second race of the weekend. Sunday’s race had to be restarted twice due to a double red flag, Simon Jespersen was involved in one of the crashes, an accident in which the Dane’s bike went up in flames. Jespersen suffered some injuries following the crash and will not be able to ride in Jerez this week for the final races of the season.

In the third resumption of the race, Joan Díaz finished tenth. Juan Rodríguez finished thirteenth and Davide Fabbri fifteenth, so all three riders of the Spanish team scored points.

Juan Rodríguez“It has been a tough weekend for me, I came back from an important injury that prevented me from training these last weeks and that has affected me. Besides, this circuit is not one of my favourites and it is not the one that suits me best. Saturday’s race didn’t go the way we wanted it to, but on Sunday I managed to improve. For the next round in Jerez we hope to be with the front group and improve our feeling”.

The next round of the Spanish Superbike Championship will be at the Jerez circuit on the weekend of October 30th and 31st. This will be the last round of the ESBK season.
