Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team Looking to Unlock Some Misano Magic

Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team Looking to Unlock Some Misano Magic

The Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team is aiming to bounce back at this weekend‘s Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini following a difficult race in Spielberg, Austria, a fortnight ago.

The Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team is gearing up for this weekend‘s Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. Riders Manuel Gonzalez and Keminth Kubo are excited to get Round 14 of the Moto2 World Championship started and hunt for some championship points.

Gonzalez is no stranger to the San Marino venue. He secured a third and a second place in the WorldSSP300 championship in 2018 and 2019 respectively and came close to a podium in both Emilia-Romagna WorldSSP races in 2021. He would like to add further success stories this weekend. He currently holds 16th place in the standings and is aiming to make strides.

Kubo is relatively new to the San Marino track. He visited the Misano World Circuit during his Yamaha VR46 Master Camp training when he took part in the fifth edition in 2018. He remembers riding there on the YZF-R3s but is aware that he will need to adapt his riding style and the lines to his Master Camp Moto2 bike.

The Misano circuit, constructed in 1972, was a regular scene for Italian Grands Prix throughout the 80s and early 90s. The 4.2 km track is ridden clockwise since a radical renovation was done to meet MotoGP's safety regulations in 2007 that put the circuit back on the MotoGP calendar. The upgrade also included a new chicane, resulting in the current lay-out of six left and ten right corners, and giving the track increased race excitement.

Sports Director

"After a race to forget, we‘ve come to Misano with a lot of desire to do a great race. Manu has managed several podiums at this circuit, that means that he likes it and feels comfortable. From what we have seen during this season so far, it‘s clear that it‘s very important to have a good set-up of the bike from the first practice session on. So, we will study all the details very well to achieve this objective. Kubo has to try to get to know the track as soon as possible so that he can focus on improving little by little and gain the confidence to try to follow more experienced riders and thus be able to lower his times."

"I‘m happy to be at the Misano World Circuit! I like this track a lot and I have nice memories from past races here. We had a difficult weekend in Austria, so I‘m ready to return to work with my team and recover the feeling we had in Silverstone. We will give our best!"

"We had a difficult weekend in Austria, then I've been in Thailand for a week. I trained a lot, and I'm fully motivated for the San Marino GP! I had the chance to ride in Misano once in 2018 when I was at the Master Camp event. I don't know the track very well, but I'll be working hard with the team starting from Thursday. It will be an interesting weekend!"
