It was an intense weekend under the Misano sun for Nolan Group riders,
each produced great performances and achieved significant results since
the qualifying practice.
Marco Faccani achieved an incredible pole in Superstock 1000 and an
amazing podium in the race. Federico Caricasulo reached pole position; as our
home rider managed to beat the champion Kenan Sofuoglu, and after an incredible
race, Caricasulo closed in second place behind the Turkish .
In the top class, there were good results for Chaz Davies; he came forth
in race 1 (after starting in the 22nd position).
Chaz Davies RACE1 4th
“We had a bit of a rough start, as we were pushed off the track. But, these things happen during races, especially after a complicated Superpole session. Unfortunately, the rear started to push a lot with the qualifying tyre on, altering the behavior of the bike. Anyway, I’m really happy with our pace during the race. Climbing back through the field was definitely fun, even though it’s a shame we just missed the podium. Tomorrow is another day and, with a clean start, we’ll have another go at it.”
Leon Camier GARA1 8th
I got caught up at the start, with Savadori going down and probably hitting him. I think I hit Savadori with my boot when we were on the gravel, cause my boot was really damaged and that caused me some problem during the race. After that I had to push hard, trying to overtake people and it was a good comeback since I had a really good pace. I think tomorrow we will have the pace to do something good.
Xavi Fores RACE2 4th
"I'm really happy with this result ! After all contingencies had in the last few races , we finally managed to get a result that the whole team was waiting for. This morning a problem did not allow me to take part in the warm-up . I was afraid of being at a disadvantage for this , because of the track conditions changed so much as today. During the first laps , with a full tank I did not feel at ease, then I began to acquire feeling with the bike, but it was far in front of Giugliano otherwise I could have fought for the podium with him . Now we hope to repeat even in the Laguna Seca round.
Lorenzo Savadori RACE2 5th
“It was a good race for us this one. The only shame is about the crash of yesterday. Today we had the pace of the leaders but the crash of Davies makes us lose the contact of Fores with our group. Unfortunately me, Hayden, Lowes and Torres were shooting with the same lap times and in the end we were not able to go and get the spaniard in fourth place. I’m still happy that I managed to bring home a fifth place which is good for me, for Iodaracing and for Aprilia guys too. This weekend went better end better. Friday we weren’t very much ready and then we rebuilt the situation rising from SP1 to SP2, up to the second row, a pity only for the fall in Race 1. It makes me pleasure to be in the top five, the goal is to stay there for as long as possible to keep improving. The next race will be on a track that I have never seen, in America at Laguna Seca, I will try to learn it quickly with the Team help”.
Federico Caricasulo 2nd
“It was a great race. I’m afraid only they have not exceed-
ed Sofuoglu in last lap, but it had a little headed and I don’t want put this great result. After the start, I tried to stretch, but I setting the peace saving tires. My bike are ok from the start to the end. After the podium of Phillip Island we are looking for a confirmation and have found it in a home track satisfy us. Thanks to my team, my sponsors and all my supporters”.
Marco Faccani 3rd
Finally the podium !! Last half of the race has been a little difficult because a lack of grip but succeeded at last ... now a little' break for everyone. Thanks to all the guys from the Triple M Racing , we really needed this result!!
