Bendsneyder gathers valuable information

The result was not satisfactory, but the information that Bo Bendsneyder and Jesko Raffin collected during the Moto2 race of the Thailand GP is very valuable. Both riders of NTS RW Racing GP ran into roughly the same issues and frame builder NTS and the team can use that data to improve. The 20th place of Bendsneyder and the 22nd place of Raffin were of course not what NTS RW Racing GP and the riders were hoping for. On the scorching hot Chang International Circuit in Buriram, the asphalt reached…

Bendsneyder misses that one perfect lap

A very local rain shower threw a spanner in the works in the final phase of the first qualifying session for the Grand Prix of Thailand.

Bendsneyder discovers Chang International Circuit

The opening day of the MotoGP of Thailand went under particularly warm but fortunately dry conditions. On the first day at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Bo Bendsneyder and Jesko Raffin were mainly looking for the right settings. The riders of NTS RW Racing GP rode the 24th (1.36.884) and 28th (1.37.534) time respectively. Bendsneyder and Raffin were not entirely satisfied with their positions, but they were not dissatisfied with the times either. Also in Thailand the differences in the Moto2 are very small, with 24 riders within a…

No points in difficult Aragon GP

Luck should have been a bit more with Bo Bendsneyder and Simone Corsi to grab points in the Grand Prix of Aragon.

Good start in Aragon just not good enough

For a long time, it looked like Bo Bendsneyder could qualify directly for QP2 at Motorland Aragon. However, in the final phase of the second free practice, the Dutchman was unable to improve his time. He finished the first day in Spain in 18th. Simone Corsi managed to improve his time in the afternoon session, but that didn’t help the Italian to improve his position from 22nd. The start was good. In FP1, Bendsneyder set the fourteenth fastest time with 1.53.700. In FP2 he also stayed around that position, which…

Bendsneyder just outside the points

Bo Bendsneyder and Simone Corsi had the points in sight in the Moto2 race of the Grand Prix of San Marino & Riviera di Rimini, but they just didn’t manage to grab them.

Both riders of NTS RW Racing GP fought a fierce battle in a group of about ten. Corsi in particular did good business in this…

Bendsneyder making progress in Misano

Both Bendsneyder and Corsi were about a second faster than on the first day. Corsi recorded 1.38.544 in the first qualifying round. Bendsneyder set 1.38.607 in that session. With these lap times the NTS riders finished in eighth and ninth…

Good start Bendsneyder not rewarded

Bo Bendsneyder and Steven Odendaal worked themselves into a sweat on the Silverstone circuit, but that was not rewarded with points. The riders of NTS RW Racing GP finished the Moto2 race of the British Grand Prix as 21st and 25th respectively. They were far from satisfied with that result. The circumstances in England were extreme and tough. It had not been hotter than this – an air temperature of 32 degrees Celsius – the entire weekend. In fact, in the entire season it hadn’t been this hot as during…
