The Reale Avintia Arizona 77 lands on Phillip Island for the Australian Grand Prix, which will be the antepenultimate race of the World Championship, after a positive weekend in Japan. Stefano Nepa, who has been doing great performances in the last few races, arrives in Australia with the motivation to continue with the good feelings.
Located on a small island at 140km from Melbourne, the Phillip Island circuit is a legendary World Championship track that has hosted the Australian Grand Prix on a total of 24 occasions, and has done it consecutively since 1997. A total of 4.4 km and twelve corners (seven left and five right) make up one of the fastest tracks on the current calendar. Sunday’s race will be a total of 23 laps and one of the most important factors during the weekend will be the strong winds that tend to affect the Australian track because this completely conditions the driving of the riders.
Stefano Nepa, who finished 16th in Japan, faces the Australian Grand Prix with high expectations after the good results obtained in the last races and with the desire to confirm the positive feelings.
“We’re on Phillip Island, one of the most beautiful circuits in the World Championship. It’s a very fast track, with corners that are practically in full gas in fifth gear. It’s going to be very important to do very well throughout the weekend, but especially in the QP, as it’s going to be very tight. The objective will be to be in every session in the top ten to be able to go directly to Q2.”
