Misano on the Adriatic Coast is the destination for the World Championship this weekend, following two weeks of inactivity. It’s a popular holiday destination, but the Moto3 riders are not going to the region for anything approaching a holiday. The lower cylinder class riders are preparing for round twelve of their season. A short track 4.226km in length, flat and with slow, closed corners awaits them for Friday practice. Sandro Cortese heads the standings, with direct rivals Viñales and Salom trying to take points off his lead at every race. There will also be a significant competitive Italian presence on the grid this weekend.

Héctor Faubel has a top three goal in mind, now back to full fitness after an intense period of physiotherapy to relieve the pain caused by his crash at Indianapolis. The Spaniard is now fighting fit for the challenge of Misano.

Héctor Faubel: “Misano is a circuit at which I have always been fast. However, alongside Indianapolis it is a circuit at which I have never been on the podium. That’s a good motive for me to put an end to such a statistic this weekend. My bike is undergoing an evolution that is very favourable. We had a good weekend at Brno despite some problems and it was just a shame that we had more issues in the race. If we work as we did there, then we will qualify well and will be ready to race. I am now fully recovered from the knocks I took at Indianapolis, so I hope to be able to perform at my best this weekend. I just ask that everything unfolds normally in order to work without problems. I am convinced that the results will come soon. I want to get a good result for the team.”
