Avintia Esponsorama Racing lands this weekend at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, where the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini will host the final round of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.

For the first time this season, the Grand Prix will be compound of two races, one on Saturday and the other on Sunday.

Xavi Cardelús is currently 18th in the world standing with 7 points. The Andorran rider will look to close the season with a good result to recover from the bad luck he has had on Sundays throughout the year.

André Pires is 16th with a total of 11 points. The Portuguese rider will close his first season in the MotoE World Cup at Misano after a year of learning, where he has made great steps ahead since the first round of the calendar so far.

The first free practice for the MotoE class of the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini will start on Friday at 8:20am.

“We are facing the last weekend of the year. We will keep working as we have been doing so far and I know it can be a great weekend. The goal is to do well, as we have been doing so far and, despite the fact that we haven’t finished on Sundays, we have shown a great level and speed all season. I’m motivated to finish the year as I think we deserve to do.”

“I am motivated for this race. I’m looking forward to getting to know the circuit as it’s new to me, so I’ll have to learn everything as quickly as possible. The most important thing is to enjoy myself on the bike and to have a good weekend to finish the season well.”
