Montmeló, Spain – May 24, 2018 – Coming off of a pair of hard fought top-ten finishes in Round 1 of the RFME PreMoto3 Championship, Canadian rider Jonathan Finn is eager to better his results this weekend at Circuit de Catalunya.
Finn tested at Circuit de Catalunya last weekend in preparation for the second round of the 2018 RFME Campeonato de España de Velocidad Pre-Moto3 championship. Although he had to battle the threat of rain throughout the test, Finn and the XCtech team were able to work on the set up of his #26 Team XCtech Canadian Tire – Cobourg machine in preparation for this weekend’s race at the 4.65km – 16 corner circuit.
This weekend is another doubleheader round which will present the 14-year-old from Bushell Park, Saskatchewan Canada two opportunities to improve his race results and gain valuable points. Finn currently sits in 6th overall in points out of a highly competitive field of 21 riders.
“I am excited to be back in Montmeló and Circuit de Catalunya. It’s definitely one of my favourite circuits in the championship.” said Finn “The XCtech team and I are ready to get the weekend started and continue pushing forward both during the race and in the championship.”
Circuit de Catalunya has been re-surfaced since Finn raced here last year “The track has lots of grip. Formula 1 was here two weeks ago, and MotoGP tested here on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week so there is lots of rubber down. With the forecasted hot temperatures, the track is going to be perfect!” said Finn
Finn is thankful for the support from Canadian Tire – Cobourg, Arai Helmet Americas, Bickle Racing, Human 2.0, Impact Safe-T Armor, Marsquest, BigB Racing, VNM Sport, Infinet Motorsports and Vroom Media Ltd.
