Cal lines up on the front row of the #AragonGP grid
LCR Honda CASTROL rider Cal Crutchlow demonstrated his undoubted class by claiming a spot on the front row for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Aragon. After a difficult 2020 campaign to date, the Briton enjoyed his best day of the season as he competed at the front of field throughout, culminating in him securing third position in qualifying.
In dry, sunny conditions in north-east Spain, Cal laid down a marker in FP3 as he finished in second position to cruise through to Q2 in style. After posting eighth in FP4, the 34-year-old again showed his speed over a single lap in the qualifying shoot-out and joined Yamaha duo Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales in the top three – his first front row start since Austin in 2019.
Cal Crutchlow – 3rd
“It’s obviously great to be on the front row here in Aragon for the first of the two Grand Prix. I was close last week to getting on the front row so to back it up here in Aragon is good. The team did a good job, we worked hard over the weekend and now we need to prepare well for the race, because it’s going to be a long race with a lot of rear tyre wear that we’re going to have to manage. We’ll try our best to do that tomorrow.”
