The Japanese rider Tatsuki Suzuki from the team Simoncelli SIC58 took victory in the Moto3 category, precisely in the international circuit Marco Simoncelli in San Marino. It meant an emotional homage to the former Italian pilot who passed away in 2011. Suzuki practically led the race from start to finish, and he earned his maiden World Cup victory. Right after him there was another GALFER representative, the Scottish rider John McPhee (Petronas-Sprinta). Sixth position was for Gabriel Rodrigo (Gresini Racing), seventh for Marcos Ramírez and eighth for Lorenzo Dalla Porta (both from Leopard Racing), who was punished with a penalty for exceeding track limits, which caused him to lose three positions. The GALFER rider Lorenzo Dalla Porta keeps leading the Moto3 World Championship, 22 above his immediate pursuer.
In the Moto2 category, the British rider from the Gresini Racing team, Sam Lowes, obtained the 5th position in a very solid race. Bad luck for the two Stop and Go riders, Remy Gardner and Tetsuta Nagashima, as both of them suffered a fall that wouldn’t let them finish the race.
In the MotoGP category, Tito Rabat (Reale-Avintia) earned 3 points after finishing in 13th position. His teammate Karel Abraham didn’t score any points, as he finished the 17th.
Finally, in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, the Young Spanish rider Carlos Tatay has been proclaimed champion in Misano a race away from the end of the championship. Tatay has dominated the competition, achieving 4 victories and 4 podium positions with his four-stroke KTM RC 250 R. GALFER is the official supplier of brake discs and pads since the 2017 season.
The next date of the MotoGP World Championship will be held at Motorland (Aragón, Spain) from September 20th to 22nd.
