CIV, four second places for the #Cabergriders at Mugello

CIV, four second places for the #Cabergriders at Mugello
As was the case in the first two races at Misano, Matteo Ferrari has obtained two second places in the two CIV Superbike races at Mugello. Only the Ducati test rider (and MotoGP rider) Michele Pirro managed to do better than Ferrari, who is now second in the Italian Superbike championship standings with 80 points.

In the two Mugello races Christian Gamarino has proved that he feels more and more comfortable in the Superbike category (after moving from the Supersport World Championship) and he finished both races in seventh place.

Simone Saltarelli didn’t get the desired results at the Italian track, managing to finish both races in thirteenth place with his privateer Kawasaki. He, therefore, reached the points zone.

Highs and lows for Massimo Roccoli during the CIV weekend. The five-time Italian Supersport champion unfortunately crashed in Saturday's race while he was fighting for the win, but the following day saw him close in second place for a solid podium result.

Alessio Velini continues his apprenticeship in the CIV Supersport class. He unfortunately suffered many technical problems during practice and this meant he couldn’t do better than fifteenth and seventeenth place in the respective races.

In the Moto3 class the young rider Raffaele Fusco is also using the Caberg Drift Evo helmet. In the two CIV races at Mugello Fusco obtained the second place in race 1, while the following day he crossed the line seventh after a sprint finish, part of the leading group.

There are three #Cabergriders in the Supersport 300 class, all very young: Luca Bernardi, Francesco Pastore and Australian Reid Battye, who is racing at the Italian circuits for the first time. At Mugello Bernardi was really unlucky. In the Saturday's race he was hit by another rider, running off track before returning in last position. Thanks to an incredible comeback he was still able to finish eighth. On Sunday, in race 2, Luca ran off track and crashed while trying to avoid two riders ahead of him. A weekend to forget.

Although he is still very young, Francesco Pastore has shown great maturity and consistency this weekend, finishing the two races in fifth and eighth place, always part of the leading group.

The Australian rider Reid Battye is gaining experience in the Italian championship and his performance is improving race after race. At Mugello he scored a sixteenth and an eleventh-place finish.

The next round of the CIV Italian Speed Championship will take place over the weekend of 23-24 June at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari circuit in Imola.
