No long vacation to Marco Faccani (Evan Bros Italian Junior Team Honda Racing), every occasion is good to wear suit and helmet and get on track.
This time he has experimented with a new experience, and he accepted the invitation of Gianluca Montiron and JiR to try the Moto2 with former 125cc world champion Mike di Meglio currently involved in the World Championship. A sort of reward for the efforts and results achieved by Marco in this brilliant season, as he points out Gianluca Montiron.
The two pilots, in the two days of testing just concluded on the Mugello circuit, took turns behind the wheel of a motorcycle (MotoBi / TSR) trying different cycling solutions and exchanging motion several times. A positive experience and very educational for Marco, who had never ridden a bike like that. The Moto2 are more difficult to develop, especially in the chassis, but once you find the right set-up are very fast, have more lean angle and give the possibility to open before cornering. In short, a completely different style from Supersport. The high temperatures and the traffic on the track, they have allowed the riders to get within a particularly significant, but in the end the best time of Marco was slightly higher than the world champion.
“This is very fun to drive – he says satisfied – not forgive mistakes and is very reactive with respect to the supersport. Tires and stiffness of the frame can sometimes put a little ‘in crisis, there is much to lean the bike, now I understand why many drivers fail to nudge! – continued smiling Marco – Still it was a good experience, helped me to be sensitive to the settings on the geometry of the bike in this category with almost no electronic aids, it is crucial “.
The owner of Team JiR has been fully satisfied with these tests and has not ruled out the possibility of running our Marco as a wild-card in the coming world events.
“It is certainly very interesting possibility that is offered to us, – said Fabio Evangelist, Evan Bros Racing Team Manager – but for the moment our part we want to stay focused on all the last two appointments with the CIV in a month at Mugello, trying to finish it in the best way because Mark is playing the title with Stefano Cruciani. We still have a test with our CBR 600 Supersport before the final race of the championship. ”
A Italian Championship finished Evan Bros Racing Team with Marco Faccani could, budget permitting, consider the opportunity to participate as a wild card to the latest European test delMondiale SBK / SS held in Jerez de la Fronterain Spain in October.
Another Italian hope in the future of the world of motorcycling.
