The Avintia Esponsorama Moto3 and Avintia VR46 Academy will compete this weekend at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the 14th round of the championship, the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

Niccolò Antonelli is currently 7th in the world standing with 98 points and arrives in Misano after a positive weekend at MotorLand Aragón after finishing 5th. The Italian rider will face his home Grand Prix in Misano and will be looking for a good result in front of the Italian crowd.

Carlos Tatay is 23rd with 20 points. The Spanish rider was unable to achieve a good result at Aragón after crashing and will be looking to reverse the situation at Misano and cross the finish line in a good position.

This Friday at 9:00am, Antonelli and Tatay will contest the first free practice of the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

“We are in Misano, my home Grand Prix. I am very happy, but we will approach the weekend like any other. We will do the best we can and try to do as we have been doing so far. We will give our best from Friday and the goal for the weekend is going to be in the top 5.”

“This weekend I want to get back the good feeling we had at Silverstone. I’m motivated and it’s a circuit I like a lot. We will work from the beginning and we will try to have a good weekend.”
