The 6th place of Lorenzo Zanetti in WorldSSP was the only remarkable result for Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse in this race day, with Camier and Cluzel out of the competition respectively in WorldSBK and WorldSSP race.

WorldSBK – Race2
After the outstanding yesterday’s comeback that allowed Leon Camier to gain 15 positions and close 8th his race, today the MV Agusta rider had to deal with a problem to a small electrical part of his machine, forcing him to retire after only 12 laps.

Leon Camier and Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse left Misano Adriatico with the 8th position in overall standing, despite the 0 points in Race2. The next WorldSBK round will be held in Laguna Seca, United States, on July 09-10.

WorldSSP – Race
Cluzel started really fast his race and managed to get the 5° position but a contact with Gamarino in lap1 forced him to loose six position. The French rider pushed hard and started passing several riders until he lost the front in lap7, ending early his race.

A great comeback was made by Cluzel’s teammate Lorenzo Zanetti, who started from the 15th position on grid, finding a good race pace and finishing in 6th position, after passing the other Italian Alex Baldolini in the last laps.

WorldSSP has a long summer break now and Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti will be back on track on September 18, for the Pirelli German Round.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – In the beginning of the race I tried to fight to hold my position and then as we got into the rhythm my pace become quite good. In the end we ended out and I am a bit disappointed, but we learnt some good direction for the chassis and I now look forward to the test.

Jules Cluzel #16 WorldSSP – I made a good start and I immediately started to pass several riders. Unfortunately, shortly after Gamarino touched my front wheel letting me almost falling off. I tried to get back with the right pace but I also had a small gearbox problem and I wasn’t able to comeback. After 7 laps I started to have problems at the front and I crashed. I am very sorry because I love this track and I know we have the potential to stay ahead.

Lorenzo Zanetti #87 WorldSSP – We have never give up, despite the problems we met at the beginning of the weekend. We started with the friday’s 26th place to the 6th today’s position in race and I am really happy with that result. In race I decided to stay calm and try to save the tyre. In the end I was able to keep the rhythm of the first riders until the 6th place. Thanks to all my team because they never gave up, even in difficult times, and I really look forward to be back on track for the next rounds.
