Misano GP, preview: adrenalin rises to its highest for JiR's home GP

Emotion will be running high in the JiR Team as we head towards the GP of San Marino in Misano Adriatico, felt by many as our second home GP. Technicians and riders have just come back from the USA and are already working hard to get machines and materials ready. Simone Corsi's good race in Indianapolis gives hope to the team, and they are now expecting another excellent performance, perhaps with the chance of a podium which seems more and more an adequate result considering the latest excellent performances made by the Roman rider. Preparations are already being made for the race, using the technical developments already tested in previous races and test sessions.

Simone Corsi
"I'm happy to come back to race in Misano, it is a circuit where I feel comfortable and I've always made good races here. I'm positive because in Brno and Indianapolis we had two good performances, with good times in practice and we were on the pace, we just missed that little bit of luck that helps you reach the podium or the top step. We are conscious of our potential and I really hope to get a good result to reward all the work we're doing."

More news for the San Marino GP is the rider that will race the second MotoBI in the team. It will be Alex De Angelis, who will come back to a Moto2 race after a brief return to MotoGP. This is good news that heightens enthusiasm among the team.

Alex De Angelis
"I'm happy we found an agreement with the JiR Team for this race in Misano, where I'm at home. Simone Corsi is doing well in the championship, and this makes me guess the machine is a good one. I'm happy also because I already know almost all the team, they are the same technicians with whom I ran in 2006/2007, when I made 20 podiums therefore I feel already at home. Obviously I'll need to know the machine and get some confidence, but I'll give all my best as we're not here to 'take part'."
