After a long pause the Championship resumes
After a two-month break, the Italian CIV Championship returns to Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola. The third round will take place with the usual double date on 29 and 30 June. RMU Racing Team will present Moto 3 riders Matteo Boncinelli and Mattia Rato; and Andrea Natali for PreMoto 3 category.
RMU Racing riders come from a complicated second round at the Mugello Circuit, characterized by heavy rains. After a period of physical and technical preparation, they are prepared to race again and show their best. On June 9, the tests organized by CIV in Imola were held, and the feedback is good for both categories as explained by Alessandro Ruozi, Team Coordinator:
“The test was positive for everyone. I saw a lot of decision and conviction in Natali (Andrea) which is why I think we can do well, even if it should be taken into consideration that Imola is a difficult and technical circuit, where experience is important. Our rookies will have to try to learn the most they can”
The three free practice sessions normally held on Thursday will not take place in Imola. The weekend begins Friday 28 with free practice at 10.35/11.10am and Qualifying 1, scheduled at 4pm for PreMoto3 and at 4.30pm for Moto3.
