Darryn’s #AustrianGP ends in DNF as he takes positives and looks to Misano


With the rain just holding back on race day at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team duo both delivered a decent performance despite an eventual DNF for Darryn Binder.

Darryn had a strong start shooting up from P21 on the grid to P13 and was even in 12th at the initial stages of the race. He showed an incredible fighting spirit to stick within his group, although he had to let a few contenders pass. Just shortly before halftime of the race, he unfortunately went down and ended early on what could have been a fantastic race.


“So, Austria weekend is done and dusted but it was a bittersweet ending to what could have been a good weekend. Unfortunately, I crashed out just before halfway of the race. I had an amazing start and I really felt like I had quite a good pace. I was running amongst the points and feeling good. Unfortunately, in the place that i least expected it, I lost the front in corner 9 in lap 13. I’m really disappointed to end the weekend like this as it has been such a good weekend and I was getting stronger in each session, I felt really good in the race today and it’s a pity to end like this. Anyway, we take the positive and move on to Misano and try again.”
