The Italian rider from the Reale Avintia Arizona 77 finished the Japanese GP out of the points by very little. Despite he recovered positions from the 21st of the gird, it was not enough to leave Motegi with more points.

Next week Stefano Nepa and the Reale Avintia Arizona 77 will get another chance to get a good result in the Australian GP from the October 25th to the 27th .

“It has been a good weekend. On Friday we did a step forward but I did not get in Q2 by little. On Saturday I felt good on the wet and today in the race I did a great comeback and I have even been in Top10. However, I did a mistake with 2 laps remaining and I lost 6 positions, a shame but we are happy with the performance. Next week we will race in Australia where we can do well and maybe we can be in the top for all race long. Thanks to the team, my family and the sponsors.”
