O’Shea on form as he leads the Junior Talent Team charge

03 June 2023

The Brit impressed and set a time good enough for a row 2 start

Eddie O’Shea is back on fine form as the young Brit took his number 8 machine to a first Top 6 start for both installments of tomorrow’s Finetwork FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship races. The British Talent Team rider has been fast from the very first session and has strong pace to challenge for a podium place tomorrow and his first since he finished 3rd place at Jerez last year.

Danial Shahril, returning from injury, improved throughout the weekend and his speed in Free Practice earned him a spot directly into Q2, the Malaysian did not hold back and put in a strong 1:47.751 and placed the Asia Talent Team Honda on the start of Row 4 in 10th spot. The number 57 will be right in the mix in both JuniorGP™ races and ready to bag his first points of the season.

Tatchakorn Buasri’s weekend has been plagued with difficulty after a crash on Friday put the Thai on the backfoot. Struggling to find the form on Saturday morning, the Honda Racing Thailand rider found himself in Q1, however, a 1:48.015 was enough to put the number 5 in Q2. He was unable to improve any further and will start tomorrow from 18th on the grid but will expect to be in the hunt for points tomorrow.

One place behind his teammate is Fadillah Arbi Aditama, the Indonesian has not had the easiest of weekends but is within the Top 20 and the Astra Honda Racing Team rider will be eager to show his potential and place himself well within the points in both races.

Race 1 of the Finetwork FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship kicks off at 11:00 (GMT+2) with Race 2 at 14:00 at the iconic Circuito de Jerez – Ángel Nieto.
