Norrodin targeting learning opportunity in Thailand GP
PETRONAS Sprinta Racing Moto2 rider qualifies P32 for tomorrow’s race at Buriram as he continues to deputise for Khairul Idham Pawi
Adam Norrodin is targeting a valuable learning opportunity in tomorrow’s Thailand Grand Prix at the Buriram International Circuit, after qualifying for PETRONAS Sprinta Racing in 32nd for tomorrow’s Moto2 race.
Improving his lap times and the gap to the leaders throughout the weekend at Buriram, Norrodin was just caught out in the final minutes of the Q1 session by a rain shower, leaving him unable to improve on his 1min 37.775secs lap. With 24 laps in tomorrow’s race and a very strong chance of rain, Norrodin goes into it feeling optimistic that he can continue to improve.
Tomorrow’s Thailand Grand Prix race gets underway at the Buriram International Circuit at 1220 local time (1320 Malaysian time).
“The lap time has improved every session, although I struggled a little bit after FP3 and we couldn’t set up the bike quite the way I wanted to for qualifying. I pushed hard from the start of Q1 and I was consistent from my first lap, with my time going down every lap until it started to rain and I got held up at the end. I’m not happy with the position but my target is to finish the race because I haven’t done that yet in Moto2, but the good thing is that my times are consistently improving. The target for tomorrow is to complete the whole race and to learn lots, because there are still plenty of things I need to understand about the bike.”
