MOTOGP - APRILIA READY FOR THE MISANO CHALLENGE
GREAT MOTIVATION FOR THE SECOND HOME RACE
MotoGP returns to Italy, specifically to the Marco Simoncelli Misano World Circuit, for the second Italian Grand Prix on the 2016 calendar. This is a round particularly close the heart for Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, charged with plenty of extra motivation.
The Aprilia Racing Department has prepared for the race as best as possible with two days of testing where, in addition to factory riders Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl, tester Mike di Meglio and Sam Lowes were also on the track. The data collected and the technical solutions selected will be the starting point for the work that will be done during the practice sessions leading up to the race.
Alvaro Bautista will arrive at Misano after taking a nice top 10 placement in the last round at Silverstone, following an attentive and solid race. Stefan Bradl is keen for redemption after his potentially good performance in England was compromised by contact in the initial phases of the race.
