The Reale Avintia Arizona 77’s Italian rider crossed the finish line in a brilliant 8th position in ThaiGP, achieving then his best result in the moto3 world championship as he improved the 11th from Misano.
Nepa rode most of the race with the front group inside the Top15 performing in a high level all race long. From the second part of the race on, the front riders fastened the pace and the group broke. Nepa found himself in a small group where he fought for Top10 positions until last lap.
The Italian rider will travel to the Japanese GP (October 18-20th) with high motivation to kick off three race weekends in a row.
“It’s been a very positive weekend, specially the race as it was the most beautiful so far. It was a hard race because of the heat and the conditions. Riding in such a big group is very difficult to manage it all but I keep strong there. Shame about a contact I had at mid race that make me lose the front guys but I’m very happy with the performance, I did not expect be on first group. Thanks to the team that always help me and never surrender. Now its time to keep in this way and be focused for Japanese GP. Thanks to the sponsor, to my family and all who help me”.
