Reason why I’m very happy and I hope we will be able to continue our adventure together.

The category teached me a lot and I liked it a lot, I found myself very well with the team and we could work well and thanks to all we could finish 3rd overall, a result that for me it’s like a win. After the first race, in which we didn’t have targets, we started to believe, both me and Claudio and the results arrived one by one, reason why I’m very satisfied. Thanks to this category I felt very well on the Premoto3 test, because the riding style is the same and helped me a lot, showing to be very formative. It has been an amazing experience and I want to thank all my family, all the team Bucci Moto and the sponsor and all my city Palazzo di Assisi, which supported me and love me!”
