A GOOD SIXTH PLACE FOR LUCA SALVADORI ASTRIDE THE TEAM GP PROJECT RSV4 RF

In the warmup session this morning the times were good on a dry track, with Roberto Tamburini third astride the Aprilia RSV4 RF and Kevin Calia reacting to yesterday’s qualifiers with a fifth place.

In the race it was a somewhat adventurous start for the Nuova M2 Racing standard bearers, who had a difficult race to tackle in terms of the weather at the third start after no less than two red flags. Tyre choice was complicated with the alternating rain, sun and hail that compromised the end result. Kevin Calia, thirteenth across the wire, brought home three championship points, whereas Roberto Tamburini (nineteenth) was unable to express his talent due to a lack of confidence with the front end.

Luca Salvadori rode to a good sixth place finish astride the Team GP Project Aprilia RSV4 RF. A specialist in the wet, he demonstrated great speed even with the best on the track, proving his excellent and increasing feeling with the V4 from Veneto.

Kevin Calia
“A crazy race. We made the wrong tyre choice. The decision race direction took penalised us because at the first start I was definitely fast. In the first lap I was already in the leading group but the various red flags didn’t help us. We took home very few points from a weekend better off forgotten. Let’s hope that the next race will at least be in stable conditions. At Imola we’ll be racing to win. I want to thank the team, Aprilia Racing and all of those people who stay by my side even at times like this.”

Roberto Tamburini
“A particular race, conditioned by the weather and the red flags. We made a tyre choice that unfortunately did not pay off. I did not feel at all confident with the front end and I wasn’t able to push the way I should have. This is the second race that has gone like this. Now we need to roll up our sleeves and put in a good race at Imola in order to stay out front and bring home a good result.”
