Tech3 Gears Up for Home Glory at Le Mans: Acosta and Fernandez Ride the Wave of Support



"Highly anticipated highlight of the season for Tech3"

"I'm confident that the surge of encouragement will elevate both Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez"

Tech3, the sole French team in MotoGP, is gearing up for its local Le Mans event, with standout newcomer Pedro Acosta looking to bounce back from a challenging race in Jerez. Meanwhile, Augusto Fernandez revisits the venue of his most impressive performance in the premier class.

"The highlight of the season has arrived for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3, with the team set to make an appearance in front of their home fans at the Michelin Grand Prix de France, taking place at the legendary Bugatti circuit in Le Mans," stated team manager Nicolas Goyon.

"For the team rooted in France, this leg of the competition holds a unique significance, as it offers us the opportunity to connect with our supporters."

"Last year was remarkable, a large number of motorcycle enthusiasts attended, and the French Grand Prix surpassed previous attendance records."

"It's anticipated that a large number of supporters will return this year, and it's expected that the enthusiasm from the crowd will boost both Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez."

Following top-three finishes in Portimao and COTA, and securing a second place in the Sprint, Acosta's progress was abruptly stopped due to a severe accident during Sunday morning's warm-up session at Jerez.

A mechanical problem with the transmission on his refurbished motorcycle resulted in the young rider finishing in tenth position, the same spot he began in, following his initial experience of a rain-affected qualifying session that placed him on the fourth row at the start.

Le Mans is known for its unpredictable climate, but as of now, the weather prediction for this Saturday's qualifying appears to be steady, though there are expectations of storms on Sunday…

"From the beginning of the season, Pedro has displayed exceptional">kill, yet a minor error during the Jerez qualifiers placed him at a disadvantage for the remainder of the weekend. However, Goyon noted, this is a component of the learning curve."

"Undoubtedly, he's going to leverage his current expertise, along with the improvements made at the Jerez Test, to enhance the spectacle in France."

Acosta, still leading the KTM riders in the global championship rankings even after falling to fourth place, finished 75 laps during the Jerez post-race test. This was his initial opportunity for on-track experience outside of a grand prix weekend since the start of the season.

"Acosta mentioned, 'Coming into France, we've gained a lot of insight from our time in Jerez.'"

"After completing four rounds, it became clear to us the aspects we needed to enhance, and the test significantly contributed to our understanding in this regard. Hence, I believe we are approaching our journey to France from a much stronger standpoint."

"I enjoy racing at the Le Mans track, and since it's the Tech3 team's local circuit, we're committed to excelling. Our initial focus will be on enhancing our performance in Saturday's qualifying rounds to secure a favorable position on the grid."

"I'm truly excited to compete at that location, where the audience has a profound passion for motorcycling!"

Augusto Fernandez, competing as a rookie, delivered his top performance of the season by securing fourth place at the Le Mans circuit the previous year. This year, the highest position the Spaniard has achieved is seventh place, during the Jerez Sprint, amidst what has been described as a challenging beginning to 2024.

"I'm thrilled about my trip to France. I adore the circuit there, as it's been the setting for some of my finest performances, notably last season when I achieved my top result in MotoGP," Fernandez expressed.

The beginning of the season has posed challenges for us. Our arrival in Le Mans doesn't come at an ideal time, yet our motivation to perform strongly there remains high. We understand the importance of hitting the ground running from Friday morning, aiming for a strong qualifying performance and aiming for success in Sunday's race.

"The trial run in Jerez boosted my confidence in handling the motorcycle, and I’m optimistic that going to a track I really like will work in our favor."

"Goyon acknowledged that although Augusto's performance hasn't met expectations, Le Mans holds a special place for him. He truly enjoys the track and typically showcases strong performances there."

"He emerged victorious in Moto2, and in the previous season, he secured a 4th place finish, trailing the winner by six seconds, marking his top performance in MotoGP. I'm truly convinced that everything is in place for both competitors to excel in France, so let's get the entertainment started!"

Last year's French MotoGP saw an unprecedented attendance of 278,805 enthusiasts, with the race day alone drawing in 116,692 spectators.
