Speed Up staff is excited for the new season which, as in 2016, will touch 18 circuits in 15 countries all over the world.
The Speed Up rider Simone Corsi, during the two sessions of free practice today, after some initial difficulties he managed to improve the feeling with the bike and reduce the gap in the second session.
As previously announced, Ricky Cardús will be Corsi’s mate for this first race. The first impact with the Speed Up SF7 was positive and the Spaniard feels determined to improve the feeling with the bike before Sunday’s race.
SIMONE CORSI #24
“In the first round of testing I found chattering problems and with the crash towards the end put me on last positions. In the second session, I was able to catch up reducing the gap from the first.
I feel ready and excited to start another season with the Speed Up team. “
RICKY CARDÚS # 88
“I’m really happy to be back on a Speed UP. We are working on the setting of the bike to suit my driving style and the work done so far has already brought some progress. We used the same tires for both practice sessions and I am sure that when we will change them we will improve again. I want to thank Luca and the team for giving me the opportunity to come back racing with them and on this track, I’ll give it my all. “
