Pinoy MotoGP bet, McKinley Kyle Paz, scored points once again at the 6th round of the 2021 FIM CEV Repsol Euro Moto2 series. Held at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain, it was a crucial race to score points in before the season draws to a close in November. This round marks more than three months in Europe for Kyle, racing with the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team.
Paz qualified for Sunday’s races in 12th place, securing a vital position in the middle of the pack.
In Race 1, Paz found himself in 15th place for much of the race, managing to move up to 14th place just a few laps before the chequered flag. Unfortunately, he had to retire.
For Race 2, Paz was able to stay within the mid-pack, eventually crossing the line in 13th place and securing 3 championship points. This gives him a total of 18 points this season and 16th overall in the standings.
Paz admits Jerez proved to be difficult for him because of the heat.
“It was a very difficult race for me because of the very hot weather conditions but I still managed to get P13 in the second race. Thank you very much to my team Yamaha VR46 Master Camp for always doing a great job in preparing my bike and for always teaching me how to ride this beautiful Moto2 beast,” Paz said on his social media page.
The next FIM CEV Repsol Euro Moto2 race happens on November 21, 2021 at the Circuito Ricardo Tormo.
With the long gap between races, Paz will be coming home during the month long break, eager to reunite with loved ones and perhaps have a belated birthday break with family and friends. We’re positive he’s also keen to get on his new Sniper, gifted by Yamaha Philippines as appreciation for all he’s achieved this season.
Tune in to Kyle’s next race in November and continue to show support for our Filipino racer.
