Unfortunate last lap crash ends promising Assen race for Scott Redding
It was a good Sunday at Assen for Scott Redding overall, even if a crash in the last lap didn’t allow him to take home a precious seventh place.
Scott started the race very well, leading the group behind the leaders with a significant race pace. This was highlighted by the fastest lap in the tenth lap, which gave the impression that could join the leading group.
Suddenly Scott started to experience lack of front-grip from lap 9. On lap 13 he is in P11 but managed to remain focussed. When the rain started to drop he decided to remain on track. And this was the right decision as he start the last lap in P7.
Unfortunately however Scott lost the front and was not able to bring back home a precious 7th place.
DNF – Scott Redding
“Following a very good start, in the first few laps the race pace was excellent. Then I started to lose feeling especially with the front tire that started suddenly to drop. When it started to rain I thought things could improve but I did not find the benefits I expected. I’m so sorry for the crash in the last lap, but I have to admit it was a good weekend, especially after the big problem we experienced on Friday”.
