Sama Qatar Ángel Nieto Team Junior and Barry Baltus have achieved a double at the Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya in the fourth round of the Moto3 Junior World Championship. Baltus started in Barcelona from the front row of the grid after a great team effort in qualifying. The Belgian rider has finished twice second, behind Carlos Tatay in the first race and Jeremy Alcoba in the second race, and climbs to the second position of the championship standings. Baltus, who started the season with a victory in Estoril, is just six points behind the leader of the Moto3 Junior World Championship, with six races to go.
Barry Baltus (2nd in the first race / 2nd in the second race): "In the first race I had completed a good start, but after the red flag it was a bit more complicated to concentrate. Anyway, I started again well, and we had a good battle for the podium. In the second race, I have pushed together with two other rivals and we have managed to fight among ourselves for the podium again. Being second today in both races is perfect for the championship. I am very happy, we have done a good job. I want to thank all the people who are helping me to be here."
