Gaggi and Gennai Put in Solid Displays in Race Two at Misano

Gaggi and Gennai Put in Solid Displays in Race Two at Misano

Team BrCorse riders Marco Gaggi and Mirko Gennai were both in podium contention until the final flag in an immensely close WorldSSP300 race two at Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli”, where they closed in 6th and 7th respectively.

The race was fiercely contested between a huge lead group, and breaking into the pack was to be a tough task for Gennai as he was forced to start from pitlane after a technical issue on the grid. Despite this, the determined young Italian found himself up with the leaders towards the end of the 15-lap race; a truly amazing feat. Despite leading the race in the closing laps he was swept up in the pack and finished in a nevertheless strong seventh place, maintaining his championship lead by one point. His team-mate, Gaggi was also getting stuck into the pack, keeping himself in podium contention and impressing onlookers as he attack his home circuit. Gaggi finished as the highest Yamaha in sixth.  

Ruben Bijman (Arco Motor University Team) got his best finish of the season in 10th, just fractions ahead of local star Devis Bergamini (A ProGP Racing). Indonesia’s Galang Hendra Pratama (Sublime Racing by MS Racing) closed the race in 12th. Enzo Valentim (Yamaha MS Racing/AD78 Latin America Team) took the lasty points-scoring position in 15th.

Meanwhile, former R3 bLU cRU European Championship riders Matteo Vannucci (AG Motorsport Italia Yamaha) and Humberto Maier (Yamaha MS Racing/AD78 Latin America Team) were unlucky on Sunday, both crashing out of race two.



Team BrCorse - P6

Marco Gaggi

It was a really crazy battle today, and I’m very happy with my performance and the way I managed the race. I stayed out of trouble, I recovered a lot of positions, and then I was running in fourth so I gave everything to reach the podium. At the point I almost crashed so I decided sixth was OK. I’m glad I tried to do it, even if it didn’t work out. I’ll go full gas at the next race in Imola, a circuit I love, to try and get my first podium!
