The 2023 comes to its end with some points for Nakagami

Carrying out a remarkable comeback and managing the situation, Nakagami has scored valuable points on the last round of such a demanding year. After today’s result, he’s finished 18th in the standings, being the second-best Honda of the classification.

LCR Honda CASTROL rider Alex Rins has crashed in Valencia, on his last race with the team.

Pushing and fighting against rivals in front of the home crowd, Alex Rins hasn’t been able to finish the race due to a crash on turn 1 when fighting for the points. The rider is fine and hasn’t suffered further consequences, which is the most important.

The Grand Prix of Valencia ends a season marked by a stunning victory in Texas by Rins, and unforgettable memories together. Despite the injury and the struggles after it, the team and Alex formed a great duo from the beginning. Thank you, Alex!

It was a difficult race because I didn’t feel good with the front end. In any case, we got to the points, which is always a motivation. I want to thank the team for their job this year, and let’s keep working hard for a better 2024 season!

I would’ve liked to finish my last race differently, but this is part of racing. This season has been the most difficult of my career, and I can only thank the LCR team for their support, help, and hard work. I wish them all the best!
