The Avintia Esponsorama Moto3 and Avintia VR46 Academy will compete this weekend at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the 16th round of the Moto3 World Championship calendar, the Gran Premio Nolan del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia-Romagna.

Niccolò Antonelli is currently 7th in the world standings with 119 points and arrives in Misano after finishing 15th in the race at the Grand Prix of the Americas. The Italian rider will once again face his home Grand Prix and will be looking for a good result in front of the Italian crowd.

Carlos Tatay is 22nd with 28 points. In Austin, the Spanish rider was unable to cross the finish line in the points and, in Misano, he will be looking to reverse the situation and get a good result.

Tomorrow at 9:00 am, Antonelli and Tatay will contest the first free practice of the Gran Premio Nolan del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia-Romagna.

“I am very happy to be back in Misano. The first weekend was very good for us, but now everything will be different, so we will have to start almost from zero. We will be looking to do a good job from the first day, focusing on the race. Qualifying will be very important to get a good position to start at the front and to try to get a good result on Sunday.”

“We are really looking forward to this weekend after the atypical race we had in Austin. We have recharged our batteries during these two weeks and we are training very hard. We’ll try to enjoy the weekend at a circuit that I’ve been good at and that we finished with a good taste a month ago”.
