About the
Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli

Situated close to the Adriatic coast, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli has been a fixed value on the MotoGP calendar since 2007, although it has been the backdrop for Grand Prix racing since the 1980s.

In its current form, the 4,200-meter-long track is run clockwise and ticks all boxes; from sweeping turns to tight corners, connected by various straights that see the MotoGP bikes put close to 300 kph on the clock.

Although Silverstone didn’t come with the same reward as our first outing together in 2015, Danilo proved himself as Mr. Consistency this year, taking top Ducati honors after bringing it home in 7th place at the eventful British GP. With renewed energy from motocross training, and his eyes on another close-to-home racetrack - one where he finished runner up back in 2017 - we’re looking forward to fireworks at Misano.

About this page

“I knew that Silverstone was going to be a difficult GP for me and the incident at Turn 1 affected my race. I had decided to stay on the outside line but found the bikes of Andrea and Quartararo in front of me and I lost a few places. I then began my recovery and it wasn’t easy to pass the other riders, but in the last ten laps, I was quick and I set my fastest time on the last but one lap.

I’m confident that, without the crash, I could have finished higher up, but when you start so far behind, anything can happen. I feel bad about this missed opportunity, but these days happen. We’ve had two important days of testing at Misano before the GP, allowing us to understand the track and the conditions before the race weekend. Looking back at the test, I am pleased with my pace, and I am therefore confident about the GP.”

Highs and lows looking back at Silverstone and ahead to Misano in the intermediate class. A definite high came from Augusto Fernández, who put impressive lap times together - including the fastest lap of the race - toward the end, to claim his second victory at the finish line. A low came from the RW Racing GP camp, where the team and Steven Odendaal mutually decided to part ways after the British GP. Fellow RW Racing GP rider, Bo Bendsneyder, ended a string of bad starts with a solid run from the line, but unfortunately didn’t get rewarded for early-race pace in Silverstone.

“The start was good this time, the first lap too, but after that, I made a mistake. I wanted too much, was too eager and ran wide, and that allowed a few others to pass. Unfortunately. 

I am certainly not satisfied, but we are staying positive heading toward Misano. I’ve had some great races in the past there, and I’ve had a solid result in my last year in Moto3, so we’re looking to push to get closer to the front again.”

“Basically, we had a really rough weekend in Silverstone, not finding a good rhythm to be a contender in the race. The team has done their utmost, and I’d like to thank them for that. I’ve always had their support, but unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get the results this year, which led to the decision to part ways. 

Of course, it is a big disappointment to leave in the middle of the season. Everybody was trying their best, but in the end, we couldn’t make it work the way we all hoped for. I am thankful to NTS RW Racing GP and their partners for their efforts, for the opportunities, and above all, the trust they put in me. I am looking to find a new challenge, so I hope to have good news soon.”

Silverstone turned out to be a good old Moto3 scrap like we’ve become accustomed to, but one that carries a lot of heart-in-mouth moments as crashes are frequently just around the corner. Both our Moto3 boys kept their cool, Lorenzo taking a solid third, thus extending his championship lead while Jaume had to settle for a spot outside of the top 10.

“August has been a bit rollercoaster in terms of feelings; ups and downs but I have learned a lot. I am already thinking in Misano; very focused and concentrated.

I am very excited to have a good race, the whole team is working so hard as well.”

“I felt good during the race and I had some great battles with my rivals, which I enjoyed a lot. Unfortunately, on the last lap I made a costly mistake, which prevented me from taking the victory in the end.               

But in any case, third position is a very good result also when looking at the championship. I want to thank my team for the great job they did in Silverstone, and we’ll try to push for even better results again in Misano!”

With a break from MotoE racing in Silverstone, the zero-emissions class is back on track in Misano. With two rounds in, the riders are getting more dialed in with this new approach on two-wheeled racing, and our long term REV’IT! rider, Randy de Puniet, is no exception.

AUSTRIA RESULT: P12
CHAMPIONSHIP POSITION: P17

“In the qualifying, I exceeded track limits, which meant I had to start from the back. I was pushing the mechanics to examine the bike, because I got pushed wide and I could not turn the way I wanted to in the practice.               

We ended up changing the frame and the swingarm, and this made a big difference in the race. It was tricky because some parts of the track were wet and we don’t have any electronics to help stabilize, the bike has full torque when you open the throttle so you have to be careful. So, I am happy to finish, and we will try to improve here in Misano.”
