Spark plug problem for Poggiali

Spark plug problem for Poggiali

Manuel Poggiali's miserable defence of the 250cc World Championship title continued at Motegi last Sunday when a faulty spark plug prevented him from finishing in the points. Poggiali crossed the line in seventeen place after the problem forced him to run off the track on lap eleven.

"I had a problem with the bike connected to the spark plug, "said Poggiali, who currently lies tenth in the championship with just 79 points.

"The engine was not working as normal and sometimes the revs would just come and sometimes they wouldn't. The problem made it virtually impossible for me to do any better. I am not happy."
