Published

on

Chaz Mostert has come out fighting after questions surrounding his future to top Practice 1 at the Darwin Triple Crown on Friday.

Mostert has been heavily linked with a move to DJR Team Penske at the end of the season but took his Tickford Supercheap Auto Mustang around Hidden Valley in 1:06.7219 secs to edge out Dave Reynolds by 0.064 secs.

Shane van Gisbergen was a place further back in third but his teammate Jamie Whincup and the Shell V-Power duo of Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard were nowhere to be seen in the top 10.

Published

Back to Spain we go and this time we are heading to Catalunya for what promises to be a classic MotoGP race this weekend following the events in Italy two weeks ago.

Danilo Petrucci’s maiden victory at his 124th bite of the cherry was amazing to watch unfold at Mugello. He took no prisoners, not even his factory Ducati teammate Andrea Dovizioso, whose title tilt took a knock with his win.

Petrucci interestingly revealed that Ducati had not imposed any team orders on himself and Dovizioso, saying he had only been told to “just be there fighting for the podium”.
