Redding collects valuable points in Dutch TT
Assen, The Netherlands – 27 June 2015: Scott Redding salvaged a hard fought 13th place at the end of a difficult weekend for the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider at the historic Assen circuit in the Netherlands today.
The Briton never found a confidence-inspiring set-up with his Honda RC213V ahead of the 26-lap race, which took part in cloudy but warm conditions in front of a bumper crowd of over 97,000 fans.
Redding still gave his maximum in the eighth round of the 2015 World Championship and his efforts were well rewarded with a sixth points scoring finish of the season that keeps him in the hunt for the top 10 in the overall standings.
The World Championship now heads to the tight and twisty Sachsenring track in Germany, with Redding remaining optimistic that he can reach a more competitive level going into the summer break.
Scott Redding: 13th
“I’m pretty frustrated. You think you take one step forward but then it feels like we take two back. Nothing seems to be going right at the moment and I feel like I am letting myself down. It is not good for the team too when they are putting in all their effort to try and find solutions to the problems. We’ve said we need to regroup before but nothing is improving and that is hard.”
Michael Bartholemy: Team Principal
“Today was a very disappointing race and the conclusion to a very difficult weekend. It is difficult to understand why the pace wasn’t as strong as practice. All we can do is continue to work incredibly hard to try and be more competitive at the next race in Germany. We came here with a lot of optimism after a decent performance in Catalunya, but the weekend was tough right from the start.”
