The weekend started positively for Elia Bartolini and Matteo Boncinelli with good timings recorded in qualifying, where they respectively obtained the sixth and tenth position on the grid, improving the results of the previous season. However, the intense work on the setting of the bikes did not allow RMU to align with the leading group, which lowered the times of 2019 by almost 2.00 seconds. Fall for both riders while they were in the group of pursuers. On lap 10, an unavoidable contact for Boncinelli ended his race early. Slide for Bartolini on the eleventh lap. Riders started again, Bartolini finished in sixteenth position and Boncinelli in eighteenth.

“It was an intense weekend in which we have not been able to concretize the hard work done so far and to confirm the excellent results obtained in the last rounds. However, we are ready to recover in the last round in Vallelunga. In PreMoto 3 Margarito had a complicated weekend and was unable to express himself at his best.”
