Misano GP – Stefano Nepa finishes in Top 15 and gets his first points in Misano
The Reale Avintia Arizona 77 Italian rider did his best race weekend ever in the Moto3 world championship as he finished 11th in his home race, best scenario he could ask for. Nepa crossed the finish line on 10th position but he got a penalty by exceeding track limits on last lap so race direction decided to drop him one position. However, the Italian managed to finished inside the Top15 for the very first time in his carreer and leaves Misano with 5 points.
It was not an easy race for Nepa who started from 20th and in the first lap he had to avoid a rider who crashed in turn 8 in front of him, so he was forced to run wide, losing many seconds there. However, he managed to recover positions as he took advantage of the crashes ahead of him due to the lack of grip on track and he made it to a small group where he would fight for 11th
The Reale Avintia Arizona 77 is already focused on the next race that will be held at Motorland Aragon in 7 days time
It has been a hard weekend since the beginning because I didn’t find good feelings with the bike to push to my 100%. In qualifying we did not do it badly but in the race I had a contact with two other riders and I was last after the first lap but I have tried my best to reach the second group and we have finally achieved our goal of scoring points. Shame about the penalty for exceeding the limits on the last lap that made me lose a position, but I am happy with the performance. I want to thank the team and my family, see you in Aragon.
