Darryn looks ahead to Jerez after weekend to forget at COTA


The Circuit of the Americas is merciless as LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP Moto2 team rider Darryn Binder can testify, having finished last after a strong fightback following a crash.

Darryn is, understandably, disappointed. Despite not feeling well and starting last on the grid, the South African managed to catapult himself up to 19th position within just one lap after a strong start. However, the 26-year-old then crashed in the seventeenth position in turn 15, which fortunately was a minor incident. He was able to continue the race, but ultimately crossed the finish line in last place.

During the two-week break until the Jerez Grand Prix from the 26th – 28th of April 2024, Darryn will do everything he can to get fully fit again so that he can then fight for points again on European soil.

“Austin was a weekend to forget this time, unfortunately. After a tough day yesterday, I went into the race with the intention of making up as many positions as possible. I did my best at the beginning, had a good start and firing my way through the grid. But then I made a mistake when I overtook a rider in turn 15, which caused me to lose the front and the race was over. It’s a tough time, I’m still struggling. But I’m not giving up, I’m already looking forward to the next race.”
