Ready to race!
Suomy racing spirit was right about to miss the adrenaline of the races! After the long winter break, the 2018 MotoGp season reopens with the suggestive Qatar night race.
In the premier class, the Vice World ChampionAndrea Dovizioso, with his Ducati, will keep to make us dreaming and representing Suomy, as always, he’s determined to get good results right away.
Moto2 Family is getting bigger! Our SR Sport has been chosen by Romano Fenati who, with Marinelli Snipers Team, will debut in the intermediate class,Federico Fuligni, new adventure for him as well, the Malesian Zulfahmi Khairuddin and Stefano Manzi.
In Moto3, Suomy presence is confirmed once again by the Belgian Livio Loi, on his team Reale Avintia Academy bike.
There is no better way to start the new MotoGp season with Dovi and our SR Sport on the top of the podium.
We should be used to it but every time is a new emotion; after a not brilliant start from the 5th position , the Suomy knight is 7th in the first lap but a fantastic comeback brings him to the leading group, fighting for the head. During the 18th laps he grabs the leadership an gives us a stunning duel with Marc Marquez but, thanks to his powerful horses, on the last lap, at the last corner he gets the upper hand and finds the first 2018 victory .
Not a good debut in Moto2 for Suomy riders, Romani Fenati, after good qualifying sessions, that allow him to start from the second row on his first race in the intermediate class, he loses positions due to some technical problems and finishes 24th. Same situation for Manzi, Khairuddin and Fuligni who finish respectively 26th,28th,29th.
No luck for Livio Loi who has to abandon the race on 12th lap.
Next Race: Argentina, 8th of April
