Alessandro Ruozi, Team Coordinator
“The Championship is over and the analysis for Moto 3 is absolutely positive, I believe that Boncinelli and Rato were two excellent rookies, more and more consistent and convinced of their potential. The team has also grown a lot, they have shown their value by always questioning and bringing out the best. In PreMoto 3 Natali had a difficult season due, in my opinion, to the great and fast physical growth. I have already noticed this trend with other riders in the past and I believe that next year he will be redeemed. Being the only rider in PreMoto 3 category has not helped. Personally I am satisfied with the results and the constant growth of the whole team. “
