A NICE DÉBUT FOR THE APRILIA RS-GP WHICH, WITH VERY FEW KILOMETRES UNDER ITS BELT AND IN THE VERY EARLY STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT, IS IN THE POINTS STRAIGHT AWAY WITH BAUTISTA

ROMANO ALBESIANO: “WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT BIKE WITH WHICH WE CAN GO FAR”

Losail (Qatar), 20 March 2016 – With very few kilometres under its belt, the Aprilia RS-GP 2016, in its maiden race, confirms the quality of the project and, ridden expertly by Alvaro Bautista, crosses the wire taking its first championship points in the Qatar GP. The first race for the Italian V4 brought with it plenty of questions on how such a young project would hold up. Bautista, welcomed in the garage by a long applause from the entire team, dispelled all doubts after a race where, after contact on the first corner which consequently made him run on, he followed, regained positions and finished in thirteenth place (for three championship points). Along with the pace demonstrated, this is an excellent start for this new season.

His teammate on the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, Stefan Bradl, was also moving up through the pack and, after catching up Alvaro, had already moved into the points zone when a sliding crash finished his race early. But what counts is that the 2016 RS-GP demonstrated that it is a project with great potential, on which Aprilia’s MotoGP adventure can be built.
