American Mikey Lou Sanchez Podiums In PreMoto3 Debut, At Jerez

© 2023, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Sanchez Racing:

American Mikey Lou Sanchez finishes on the podium in his PreMoto3 debut.

The ESBK Championship started its first of seven rounds this past weekend April 1-2 at the Circuito de Jerez.

It was 12-year-old Mikey Lou’s first race weekend on the Yamaha 250-powered BeOn PreMoto3 racebike.

Mikey started off the weekend learning the new motorcycle, improving his lap times every session.

On Saturday, Mikey qualified P9 out of 30 riders.

Starting on the third row for Race One, Mikey immediately battled to gain positions and ultimately finished fifth.

In Race Two on Sunday, the fight began again and Mikey lost touch with the front group. He lost positions throughout the middle of the race, but he made an incredible push during the last three laps and regained three positions to finish on the podium in third.

“Mikey told me that he was going to be on the podium, but I told him to go easy and don’t get ahead of yourself, try the best you can, and we have a lot to learn,” said Michael Sanchez, Mikey’s father. “We came to Jerez with the goal of being in the top 10, and finished with a third place!”

Round Two will take place at Motorland Aragon in less than two weeks, April 15-16.

All Mikey’s races can be watched LIVE and on-demand on the RFME Channel on YouTube.
