Riders Elia Bartolini and Lorenzo Bartalesi are ready to return to the track for the usual double appointment, on 5 and 6 October.

Race 1 ended with a first place for Bartolini following Red flag, then subsequently disqualified for the application of a new regulation regarding the timing of return to the parc fermée following a fall. Bartalesi concluded in eighth place.

Sky Junior team VR46 #RMU missed the appointment with the official tests scheduled at Vallelunga at the beginning of September due to the correspondence with the San Marino GP, but both riders continued with their physical and technical training program.
