Salac and Yamanaka are looking forward to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli

From Spain to Italy: the CarXpert PrüstelGP team travels to Italy just a few days after the race in Aragon to compete in the 14th race of the 2021 season.

Just 15 kilometers south of the Italian vacation destination of Rimini the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli can be found. The region around the circuit not only invites one to relax in a southern atmosphere – it has also hosted at least one Grand Prix of the Motorcycle World Championship every single year since 2007. Thus also the CarXpert PrüstelGP team traveled after the Aragon Grand Prix directly to Italy, in order to prepare from today on for the 14th race of the season: the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

The last race weekend in Spain was marked by ups and downs for the entire team, from which both riders, Ryusei Yamanaka as well as Filip Salac, have learned numerous learnings together with their teams. The goal on both sides of the box: the focus of the entire strategic approach of both training days should be on qualifying in order to be able to start Sunday’s race with a good starting position. With this basis, both Salac, who was unable to finish Sunday’s race due to a crash, and Yamanaka, who finished eleventh at the Aragon GP, want to make the most of their always strong performances in the race.

Ryusei Yamanaka #6:
“The weekend in Aragon was not easy, but with the race we found a good conclusion to this weekend, so we can start in Italy with a good feeling. I like the track at Misano, I was even able to set a fastest lap in the race last year. So I have great hope that we can also improve in practice and qualifying, which will be crucial for me this weekend.”

Filip Salac #12:
“At Misano I did my first top 10 at that time, so the track layout suits me pretty well. After the weekend in Aragon, where we made a lot of progress in practice and qualifying thanks to great teamwork, I’m more than ready for this next race weekend. We have shown that we can keep up at the front with our speed. This is the performance we want to build on at the race in Misano.”
