First challenge in Qatar ends in excellent results for JiR Moto2!

Tonight witnessed an amazing debut in Qatar for the new Moto2 Class, with the two JiR Moto2 Team riders both battling for top-ten positions! Eventually Mattia Pasini took 6th while Simone Corsi took 9th position overall.

The first victory of this new class went to the Japanese ace Shova Tomizawa, closely followed by Alex Debon and Jules Cluzel. The race began with 40 very excited riders plunging into the funnel of Losail’s first bend. Almost immediately two of the leading riders crashed: Alex de Angelis and Stefan Bradl who hit each other in the second corner. The two JiR Team riders began an aggressive move through the pack, maintaining a constant rhythm, aimed at fighting their way through their competitors until the final laps when Pasini made a pass on Thomas Luethi to take 6th at the flag. Massive congratulations go to the team’s technicians, who worked so very hard over the whole weekend to give the riders the best machines possible for the race.

Even today Mattia Pasini’s MotoBI machine was the fastest bike on track with a top-speed of 277.50 km/h or 172.33mph!

Now the action focuses on the Japanese Grand Prix in Motegi on April 25th.
