LORENZO SAVADORI WILL MAKE HIS DEBUT IN THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ON JUNE 1st AT MUGELLO

On Sunday June 1st, Lorenzo Savadori will participate, as a wild card in the 125cc class, in the race of the MotoGP World Championship that will be held at Mugello. For him it will be the absolute debut in the Continental Circus and he will be the youngest participant in this important competition.

Lorenzo Savadori obtained this privilege thanks to a great start of the season in the 2008 Road Racing Italian Championship. The young boy from Cesena is currently leading the championship and he won the first race of the season right on the Mugello track, where he also conquered both the pole position and the fastest lap during the race.

In the meanwhile, the third round of the Road Racing Italian Championship will be held on May 25th at Vallelunga. A race that will allow Lorenzo to prepare himself at the best for the World Championship race ; an important race as he wants to take his revenge after he lost the victory at Monza for only some tenths, and had to "content" himself with a second position. Lorenzo, with the Aprilia of the RCGM Team, is very motivated and this weekend he will make his best to win the race and increase his advantage in the championship.

Lorenzo Savadori: "The goal I have for my debut in the World Championship is to get some points, possibly ending the race in the first thirteen riders. I know it won't be easy but I want it and know I can make it. I will surely be a bit nervous to race with the n.1 riders of the 125cc class but this doesn't mean I will forget my goal. I know the Mugello track and having the chance to ride there with the World Championship riders will certainly help me to improve some more. Anyway right now I want to think about the race at Vallelunga. I hope I will immediately make a good start, I'm really motivated and I will make the maximum to pass first under the chequered flag".
