Excellent second position for Jordi Torres in Assen

Jordi Torres second in Assen

The rider of the Pons Racing 40 team conquers another podium thanks to the second position in Assen and passes to the second place in the standings; Iwema finishes the home race sixteenth.

Exciting race this Sunday in Assen in MotoE for Jordi Torres and Jasper Iwema. Torres, who showed a good feeling with his Energica over the weekend, on Sunday he faced the race very determined, declaring that he would start taking risks in the race and fighting for the victory. Starting from fourth on the grid, Torres overtook his rivals in the overall standings to finish second. His fight with Alessandro Zaccone was great until the last corner, when the Spaniard resisted the attack of the Italian and finished second under the checkered flag, behind Eric Granado. Torres is now second in the standings of the MotoE World Cup, just 7 points from the top.
Different but still positive race for Jasper Iwema, who finished in sixteenth place. The Dutchman continues his process of adapting to the MotoE, familiarizing yourself with the riding style of the Ego Corsa.

Jordi Torres
“Today has been a great race. From the beginning we have been aggressive, defending our position. I tried to get closer to the leader, and with two laps to go I got closer but in a corner the bike slipped me from behind and I already lost all options. I knew they were also going to try to attack me, so I defended this second position until the end, this second place is very good for the championship, getting closer to the leader, but with a bit of a bitter taste as we were not able to fight for the victory. Now after the break we will see what the return brings us, we will prepare strong to arrive in Austria as well prepared as possible”.

Jasper Iwema
“Better but not at all good. It was a weekend, where the objective was to improve my line with this bike and a circuit like Assen does not help that. Yes we have improved but I expected a little more, especially from myself in the home race. I had experience on this track with small bikes but with the MotoE it is very different. We will stay with the positive: the bike has improved, we are on the line and now there is a break to arrive in Austria fresh and to continue looking for the correct line required for this bike”.
