20 September 2020 – Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli – Misano Adriatico – Italy.
Romano wins the Grand Prix of Emilia Romagna, after a race full of emotions. It has been simply perfect!
Romano improved his feeling with the FR 250GP and he could express himself at the level that reflects his talent. Unfortunately Alonso slipped while he was doing the long lap penalty, but with the satisfaction of having sealed the second faster lap in race. Let us analyze in details the performances of our two pilots.
Romano at the start took off rather good from the sixth position on the grid and at the end of the first lap he was in fourth position. In the twenty-three race laps he did not go further than the eight position. Throughout the race there have been a lot of leader changes, with Romano who did some spectacular outside over-takings. He sealed his best time throughout the second race lap, with the time of 1’42.229. In the last race laps he showed off a really fast pace that has allowed him to to win a wonderful race. We remind that for Romano, after the one of 2017, it is the second win on the Misano World Circuit. It needs to be underlined that for the Husqvarna Motorcycle, this of Misano represents the first win obtained in the in the track race.
For what concerns Alonso unfortunately he fall in corner, while he was serving the long lap penalty. Luckily he did not have any damages. The track was not particularly clean in that spot and for this reason he slipped. Until that moment, he was doing a good come back, because taking off from the twenty-second position in 8 laps he succeeded to be in fourteenth position. As we were saying, with the time 1’42.040, Alonso was the second faster pilot in race, at only 0.052 s from the fastest lap of race.
Here are the words of the winner of the Grand Prix of Emilia Romagna and of our Team Owner Max Biaggi.
Romano Fenati: “I am really happy about this race but I am aware of fact that we have to continue to express ourselves in this way. It is necessary to remain focus on the goal. It has improved a lot the feeling with the bike and also for this reason I am very satisfied.”
Alonso Lopez: “I am a little bit disappointed about the outcome of the race, because I think that we were at a good level today and even with the penalty we could have done a good race. Unfortunately with the long lap I incurred in a crash and this has represented the end of the my race. For what concerns the Grand Prix of Barcelona we have to do a further step forward, in order to do a very good weekend. Right now we are working really well and I think that this is crucial to reach the result expected.”
Max Biaggi – Team Owner: “We have a lot seek this win and it has arrived after a wonderful race of Romano. We have worked all together, without ever stop and without ever lose the confidence, strongly believing in Romano, who is a pilot that has a lot to show and that today has demonstrated his talent. Now we celebrate, with the awareness of the our great potentials. We need to work hard in order to remain in the first positions, that the team and the pilots deserve.”
