MOTOGP ARAGON: CONFIRMATIONS, PROMISES AND A SMALL DISAPPOINTMENT FOR OUR RIDERS

The desert of Aragon reveals to be a little too dry for Nolan Group pilots, whose commitment is not often rewarded by luck. But there are confirmations and promises that set a good base for the future.   The protagonist of the championship (in our eyes) has been Enea  Bastinani, who shone once again, by gaining another 3rd place podium! Also, a combative Syahrin finished in a respectable 14th place during Moto 2. Unfortunately, Petrucci didn’t experience the same good fortune as he usually receives, as he finished in an unusual 17th place. Stefan Bradl experienced a strong race as he achieved a top-ten result, with his Aprilia- an outcome that rewards his team’s hard efforts and strong expectations.   That's how we are in Nolan: we work hard and we never give up.   We've been doing this since 1972 ...and we’re far from quitting now!   We're waiting you in Japan this October, for the first of three races in three weeks! Let's support our guys together!

Moto3

Enea Bastianini 3rd

“In the early laps of the race I was in the lead along with Navarro and we pushed a lot in an attempt to pull a gap on the other riders. I noticed on the big screen that we were opening a little gap, so I followed Jorge without disturbing him, letting him do his pace. Binder and other riders, however, managed to come back in, so at that point I decided to relax and to preserve tyres, still trying to remain always in the top three positions to avoid risking too much. I knew that Binder was very fast on the long straight before the final corner, but on the last lap I saw that behind me there was Navarro, so I pushed hard to try to gain a few meters, thinking that perhaps Jorge would not be as fast as Binder. Binder managed to pass me and Jorge at the end of the straight though, taking an outside line. I gave my best taking the inside line, but I was already at the limit with the bike that was moving a lot and so it was not possible to win. Too bad, we are often fighting for victory but for some reason we have not yet managed to take one this season: we must continue to work hard to succeed!”.


Moto2

Hafizh Syahrin 14th

It was a weekend to forget. I struggled all weekend and most of the time to work hard to control my bike in every session. We tried a new setup during FP1, then we returned to the previous setup like FP2 and worked hard to repair the bike.Then the bike was better but it was not enough. We will continue to work hard for the next GP in Motegi Japan.


MotoGP

Stefan Bradl 10th

“I am happy with the top 10 and the weekend in general. We improved during practice and I hope to be able to continue this trend in the coming races. We took a step forward in terms of settings from the Misano race, especially improving in the braking phase and giving me a better feeling with the front tyre. We were able to further perfect things here, finding a good base straight away on Friday and then working to sort the details. Obviously, there is still room for improvement, for example in taking better advantage of the rear tyre to be faster with new tyres, but we are not far off. Now I have high expectations for myself for the season finale”.
