Bendsneyder misses chance to fight for points

The Catalunya Grand Prix was a race of many ‘what if’s’ for NTS RW Racing GP. Seeing Bo Bendsneyder finishing the Moto2 race in Barcelona in 17th, what if he had had a better qualifying on Saturday? What if he had had a better start? Of course, there is no guarantee the result would have been different, but the nagging feeling of dearly missed chances remained. Not for Piotr Biesiekirski, who made it to the finish of a Grand Prix for the first time, in 21st. Bo Bendsneyder had a…

Questionmarks for Bendsneyder

As good and hopeful as Friday was at the Circuit de Catalunya, as disappointing was Saturday for Bo Bendsneyder and NTS RW Racing GP. Top 10 times were way out of reach, nor was there a chance to fight for Q2. On the contrary. Bendsneyder starts the GP of Catalunya from 28th place, only two places ahead of his teammate Piotr Biesiekirski. On Friday it almost seemed a certainty that Bendsneyder could compete for a place in the first four rows, with his eleventh place after two free practices. In…

After a three-race absence, Jesko Raffin returned to the bike at NTS RW Racing GP in the San Marino Grand Prix.
