APRILIA ON HOME TURF AT THE MARCO SIMONCELLI CIRCUIT OF MISANO
The ultra-Italian Aprilia Racing Team Gresini will be on home turf for the thirteenth race of the season at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. It will be a demanding weekend, prepared for by the team with a test session in August with encouraging feedback. The Italian circuit has a very technical layout where precision and a fluid riding style are the key to being fast. Last year all the races were held on a wet track, whereas the forecast this year (despite some chances for showers during the practice sessions) are promising for a dry Sunday.
In the Aprilia garage, in addition to the usual technical upgrades, Pietro Caprara will be alongside Aleix Espargaró as crew chief until the end of the season.
