The excitement and the trepidation for the Italian GP at Mugello Circuit has quickly been destroyed by the terrible news of Saturday 29th of the Accident in Moto 3 where Jason Dupasquier’s been involved. The shock transformed into sorrow yesterday Sunday 30th in the morning with the official news of the passing of the 19-year-old Swiss rider.
The whole Accossato team expresses our condolences to Jason’s beloved ones.
Zarco fought for the entire race on Sunday 30th to conquer the fist positions. During the last laps Mir ad Oliveira has conquered the podium over him. Johann got a P4 and gained enough points to rank second only after his French fellow Quartararo.
At Mugello, Pramac team, apart from Zarco, has admired a great race by Pirro.
Now it’s time to fly to Catalunia where we’re all getting ready for the return of the Star of Madrid. Jorge Martin should be back on track next weekend in Montmelò.
In Moto3, despite the tragedy of Dupasquier, the official race took place yesterday. Squadra Corse Sic58 – supported by Accossato – saw Tatsuki Suzuki ranking 10th and Fellon 19th. Growing talents, race after race.
Portuguese World Superbike
Last weekend has also been the turn of the Portuguese WSBK races in Estoril.
Accossato is proud to sponsor and to see our parts racing with the Teams: Go Eleven, Puccetti and Barni.
Let’s start with the Go Eleven Team
Chaz Davies climbs on the podium, second position, in Race 2 at Estoril! And the Go Eleven Team conquers the fourth podium in Superbike!
Chaz Davies (Rider):
"I am very very happy to finish the weekend like that! It was a complicated Saturday but we did a good job today to move forward on the grid in the Superpole Race and this gave us a chance to fight for the podium in the last Race! Really good job. Huge thank you to the Team and the guys not just for the great work today and the good job they have done this weekend, but also during the long winter to get here. All the guys from the Team deserve this more than I do. Hopefully we can learn a lot from this weekend and we can put this in the next races!"
Denis Sacchetti (Team manager):
"Chaz and the team were able to overturn the weekend, I'm proud of them, good job! Today some might think that we were also lucky, but in reality, we deserve it all, because we started from behind and lap after lap Chaz reduced the gap with Rea, and overall he was the fastest. If we had done FP2 and without the yellow flag in qualifying, we could have had two good races, but these are the races. Today we enjoy this second place and we look forward with motivation. I express my condolences to Jason's family, today we can't be too happy!"
A double Top 10 for the Barni Racing Team and Tito Rabat at the Estoril weekend
The Barni Racing Team gets a double Top10 in Race 1 and Race 2 at the Estoril Circuit – second round of the WSBK. After getting a P9 in Race 2 on Saturday May 29th, Tito Rabat conquered P10 in Race 2. In Superpole Race he finished in P12. Tito gains 13 points on the overall ranking where he gets P4 among the independent pilots.
Kawasaki Puccetti Racing
Manuel Puccetti: “This weekend we’ve moved some steps forward compared to what we did in Aragon. We were already competitive in Spain but here in Estoril, Oettl has been an absolute protagonist. He’s definitely running for the victory of the championship. He led 27 over 36 laps of the two races and got two podiums. I’m also happier for Oncu who’s improved a lot. He’s been slowed down on Saturday by a technical issue but Sunday he conquered an amazing result. This is definitely promising for him and his team. Mahias has time again shown a great potential. As he’s competing in the WSBK, it will take some months to enjoy the outcome of his and our job. Keeping it up we’ll become more and more competitive in Superbike”.
