The race weekend in Assen was the scene of Stefano Nepa’s debut with the Reale Avintia Arizona 77 in the Moto3 World Championship. The Italian rider started the race from 27th position on the grid.

Once the race started, there was a large group of riders and, although at times it seemed that it was going to break, the changes of leadership in the head of the race, the strong wind and the low pace made the riders regroup once again.

Despite the fact that at the beginning it was a clean race, overtaking went on as the laps went by and cause several crashes and Stefano Nepa saw the oportunity to gain positions until crossing the finish line in the Top 20.

”The race went quite well, in the first few laps I was able to stay with the group but, unfortunately, afterwards I did not have a good rhythm and I lost contact with the group but this is only the beginning and we have to work hard to go forward. I have to thank the team and the mechanics who have done a great job these three days and also thanks to the sponsors and my family. We’ll try again in Sachsenring.”
