Head-Liners capturing special moments in Motorsport week September 12-18th

Rachael Archer on taking the win at GNCC WXC Round 9 ‘The Mountaineer’:  ‘I think racing the Sprint Enduro last weekend primed me for GNCC this weekend. Track also suited me being technical and fast. 
I kept telling myself to stay cool as a cucumber, gotta win! 😂

Liam Lawson on winning Formula 3 Final Race at Mugello: ‘”That was a cool race, a nice way to end the season. Obviously, it’s hard not to look back on the year and think about what might have been if we had not lost so many points’

‘I think we could have capitalized a lot more this year, so that’s a shame. I guess we proved the point a little bit that we did have the speed this year. That was a fun race for me, I enjoyed it”‘. Courtesy Red Bull Junior.

Francesco Bagnaia on taking 2nd at MotoGP Misano – first race after leg fracture: ‘”When I saw on Friday I was fast, I was not thinking of a podium, but maybe a top ten. Then, this morning in Warm-Up, I was very competitive so I tried to push. I was very happy that everything was coming more easily than I was expecting”‘.

MotoGP Sporting Director on Radio Communication for Safety first trial test:  1) ‘The preliminary tests were to find out riders were able to hear messages on the earphones and 2) to see if they were distracted by messages that would arrive mid-corner or moments of more concentration’.

Valentino Rossi on VR46 riders taking 1-2 in MotoGP at Misano, along with 1-2 in Moto2: ‘”There was a moment during the race where I asked myself- who the hell’s idea was it to make the Academy? Seriously, it is great satisfaction because we work with them every day to make them grow. We did a great thing for Italian Motorcycling- it’s just a pity they grow so strong, so early”‘.

‘”But, when I stop, we can still cheer on our riders. So I am happy“‘.

Head-Liners will feature special moments in Motorsport each week.
