SECOND ROUND OF THE "TRIPLE-HEADER": PHILLIP ISLAND
APRILIA IN AUSTRALIA TO CONSOLIDATE THE POSITIVE TREND
The lights have only just gone down on the GP of Japan and it is already time to get back on the track. This time it will be the rolling hills of Phillip Island in Australia that host the second round of the "triple-header".
In Motegi, Aleix Espargaró gave Aprilia one of the best weekends of the season, proving to be extremely fast in every session. Only the driving rain that fell on the race kept the Spanish rider for taking his RS-GP to an even more important position, but his seventh place finish confirms the excellent level of the Italian bike. Sam Lowes also cut a fine figure on the Japanese asphalt, finishing in the points after a tremendous comeback.
So expectations are high for the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini. In the three remaining races of the 2017 MotoGP Championship season, Aleix and Sam have the potential to be protagonists.
