With just one day of rest following the Gran Premio San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing duo of Iker Lecuona and Danilo Petrucci have been back on track today to try out several settings and some evolutions aboard their KTM RC16 ahead of the second race at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, which is set to take place in less than five weeks’ time.
Facing some difficulties at his home track from day one, Danilo Petrucci tried everything he could to do a decent race at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli today. After he had to start from 22nd on the grid, he kept his head down through all the race, did consistent lap times passed a few contenders and moved up until P16 after 27 tough laps.
The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli welcomed riders and teams with sunny and dry weather conditions on Saturday. Thereby, both Iker Lecuona and Danilo Petrucci lowered their lap times quite significantly compared to Friday, but will have to start the Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini from the seventh and the eighth row of the grid tomorrow at 14:00 local time.
