Team JiR Moto2, just a few days before the race in Barcelona, can now look at their progress so far in 2010 and refine their plans for the second part of the World Championship.

Rider Simone Corsi has so far shown considerable speed and a willingness to learn, gaining a fifth place in Jerez and two podiums at Le Mans and Mugello, confirming his skills and the quality of the JiR Moto2 project. The objective at this point is to try to further improve performances to have an even more competitive team.

Starting from Catalunya GP, the collaboration between JiR and Mattia Pasini will come to an end. JiR will still continue with two bikes and at this time we are investigating the availability of a highly-motivated rider ready to take part at this weekend's Catalunya GP.

In the meanwhile Simone Corsi is getting ready for the Spanish race with the hope to redeem his Assen performance.

"I'm regretting now how Assen went. It's true that I got into the points but we could have done better, because we found a pretty good machine set-up during practice. I continue learning new things on my MotoBI, but it's now time to be competitive also in qualifying so we can aim to those results that I still believe are achievable for us. I like the Barcelona track, it is very similar to Mugello where I took a podium just a few weeks ago."
