Fernandez pilots his motorcycle engulfed in flames without realizing it

The Mallorcan has had to almost throw himself from his machine to avoid burning himself during the Moto2 Warm Up of the 2020 Catalan GP.


The Warm Up of the 2020 Catalan GP in the Moto2 category will surely be remembered for a long time by all the members of the World Championship, and especially by Augusto Fernández.

The Mallorcan had to jump off his motorcycle at turn 10 at Montmeló with less than three minutes remaining to the end of this session after his Kalex of the Marc VDS Estrella Galicia team caught fire, without prior warning, 0.0.

Fortunately, and beyond the tremendous shock that this scene has caused, Fernández, who was located in sixth position and had been improving his best time, is in perfect condition, despite the fact that the flames have penetrated the fire-retardant suit that all pilots equip.

In the same way, their participation in the ninth round of the championship is in danger, since unlike MotoGP, in the intermediate class the riders only have a single saddle to complete the whole weekend.
