Lorenzo Savadori is ready for his home race at Mugello

After the good performance he made during the last round of the MotoGP World Championship at Le Mans in France, Lorenzo Savadori, rider of the Fontana Racing Team with an RSA Aprilia 125cc bike, is ready to face one of the most important race for any Italian rider: the Mugello round. This time, the young rider from Cesena is really decided to bring back home a good result, after he nearly made it last week at Le Mans. In fact, during the second free practice session on Saturday morning, he was 12th. Then, during the single qualifying practice session on Saturday afternoon, he managed to get a great 7th place on a humid track, before an innocuous crash at only 2 minutes from the end made him conclude at the 21st position. It was a wet race and Lorenzo made a good start from the grid, he got back many positions and was 13th when there were six laps to go. Unfortunately, as it happened to 23 riders out of 31 in these really bad conditions, he crashed as well, ending in this way the French episode. It's now time to breathe some home area and during the weekend of May 31st, the World Championship will be held in Tuscany, on the very fast Mugello circuit. Lorenzo Savadori really wants to make something good in front of his public and the whole team is confident.

Lorenzo Savadori: "I'm very disappointed about the crash in Le Mans, I could have obtained my first points in the World Championship and it has been a real pity for my mood but also for my team. At Mugello there will be some news for me, both technical and personal, and I can't wait to go back on track. I know the circuit very well, and in this occasion, there will be the Italian wild card riders, which are nearly all my ex-adversaries. I'm very motivated and my goal is to finish the race in the first 10 riders, it would be a great satisfaction for me, for my team, and for my manager Roby".
