Moto2 and Moto3 testing hit by rain


Rain returned to Mugello on Monday, slowing the first official post-race test of the year for the Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes.

The majority of Moto2™ World Championship riders remained in Mugello for a one-day test alongside the Moto3™ World Championship. Unfortunately the day was hit by rain, which caused the likes of Sam Lowes (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) to head home early.

The QMMF Racing Team was set to try a new shock and revised carbon swing arm, but the rain interpreted their plans. QMMF and Speed Up Racing both decided to call in a day before 14:00 Local Time.

Dunlop were eager for riders to lap in the wet in order to assess their new front rain tyre which was harder than the 2015 wet front. Fortunately conditions eventually improved and riders were able to run on slicks. Again Dunlop had tyres to test, bringing the ‘0’ tyre they used in Le Mans and Jerez to further assess the durability.

Vinales Perseveres In Drama Filled Italian GP


Tech3 Racing Team rider Isaac Viñales delivered a tireless performance in today’s round six battle at Mugello to finish the challenging event in 24th. The young Spaniard bolted forwards when the lights went out and he quickly locked into his race pace as he intended to move up the field. By the third lap he was running in 22nd yet, at that point of the sprint, the red flag was shown due to the air fence being damaged by a crash. The GP was supposed to be resumed with a new and shortened procedure, however, after the initial sighting lap, it was pushed back once more due to several riders delaying the restart after missing the one minute slot to access the track. It finally began with 10 laps to run and Viñales kicked off the shootout from 22nd. He battled throughout the remaining laps and he pushed non – stop before crossing the finish line in 24th position having given his all. Next up for the class rookie is his home Grand Prix in Montmelo where he will be intending to score a strong result aboard the Mistral 610.

On Form Smith Powers To Top Independent Position At Tough Italian GP


Monster Yamaha Tech3 team rider Bradley Smith produced a strong showing to finish the round six battle at the meandering Mugello circuit in 7th place aboard the Yamaha YZR-M1. The British star undertook a superb start and shot from the head of the third row on the grid up to 3rd by the time he entered the first corner as he fought with the leading MotoGP bikes. He quickly stuck into his rhythm but got shuffled back yet remained composed and reignited his campaign to move back up the field by setting a series of consistent lap times. He reclaimed 8th at the midpoint of the race and continued to make advances forward with his target being the factory Suzuki of Aleix Espargaro who he slotted past on lap 15. The 25 year old powered onwards and comfortably opened a gap to the pursuing riders before speeding across the finish line only 13.340 seconds behind the leading bike. The result sees him successfully clinch a return to the top independent team position.

2016 MotoGP: Lorenzo wins last lap thriller as Rossi retires in Mugiallo


Valentino Rossi may have been unable to score, but the fans in Mugello were treated to a do or die duel between Lorenzo and Marquez.

For the first time since 2008, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) lined up for the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM in pole. The last time he started from pole in Mugello he won, having not returned to the top step of the podium since 2008. Over 100,000 people lined the hillside stands of Mugello to see if ‘The Doctor’ could win once more. But it wasn’t going to be easy with Maverick Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) right alongside him on the front row.

Riders filtered through clouds of yellow smoke on their warm up lap, getting a final pre-race taste of what the Mugello circuit was like. There was little time to think as the lights went out, Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) making an incredible start to lead into Turn 1 from fifth on the grid. It was a disastrous start for Viñales who dropped down to 11th.

Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS), Alvaro Bautista (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) and Loris Baz (Avintia Racing) all came together at the first corner and fell. The trio retired from the race, Baz heading to the medical center for checks. The French rider was diagnosed with a fracture of the third metatarsal and will undergo surgery in Switzerland.
