On a Sunday threatened by looming black clouds, we see the sun shining on rookie Giulio Presutti astride his Aprilia RSV 1000, model year 2001.
He stood out from the qualifiers, first taking a provisional second place and then earning the third spot on the starting grid.
After a difficult start which relegated him to sixth position on the first turn, the number 47 rider recovered and overtook rider after rider to move into the lead in the “IperOltre” class, also setting the Fast Lap and even earning recognition as the top ranking rookie.
After the race, Giulio Presutti commented: “I never would have expected a result like this in my first race. I am happy with the way I was able to manage all the race sessions and I hope that this experience will help me to improve for those to come... I wish to thank my friends for their support, as well as Aprilia V60 Assistance for their technical support and the Gabro Racing Team”.
