 In Fabio Di Giannantonio, Jorge Navarro, Moto2, News

About 4 months ago the Grand Prix of Qatar ended amid uncertainties and fears about what we would have to face in the following months. The ferocity of a global pandemic has forced the world to stop leaving many locked down at home. But finally here we are! The long wait is over: it’s time to lower the visor and give full gas! Tomorrow the Speed ​​Up team will be back on track with its two standard bearers, Jorge Navarro and Fabio Di Giannantonio, eager to get back on their Speed ​​Up bikes.

It will not be the normality of all time to accompany teams and riders in these first two races, but a new normality that includes social distance and the heavy absence of the public.

Diggia and Jorge, like the whole team, are ready to give their best on the Jerez-Ángel Nieto circuit starting tomorrow in the test day. Riders and technicians will be engaged in two sessions of 40 minutes each (11.40-12.20; 15.40-16.20) which will precede the normal race weekend time schedule (FRI: Fp1 10.55-11.35, Fp2 15.10-15.50; SAT: Fp3 10.55-11.35, Q1 15.10-15.25, Q2 15.35-15.50; SUN: Warm Up 8.50-9.10, Race 12.20).

“Today I am very happy! After a long time, I go back to live the paddock, my team and to touch my bike. I can’t wait to start again after these long months at home, holding back the desire to drive my Speed ​​Up. I am ready to give my best, even if it will not be the same without the public to support us. It will also be particular to play two races in a row here in Jerez: this means that for the second race we will have much more data to rely on. Finally, here we are!”

“We have arrived on track and everything is different, the paddock is empty and it seems to be in a day of testing, not in a race. It’s a particular situation, we can only stay in the garage but the good thing is that we start competing again. I am with the team, all are very excited and willing to start over. This motivates me even more, I can’t wait to get on track with my bike, finally the time has come, tomorrow we go!”
