Melandri to make second Speedcar Series appearance

Melandri to make second Speedcar Series appearance

Italian to race in Dubai event this weekend as MotoGP participation remains in doubt.

Former MotoGP World Championship runner-up Marco Melandri has been keeping himself busy whilst awaiting the resolution of his premier class future, and the Italian will be back behind the wheel of a Speedcar this weekend as his four-wheel experience continues to increase.

The Italian will take part in round four of the Speedcar Series at the Dubai Autodrome on February 27th-28th, having already competed in the championship’s third event of the season. Melandri came close to winning race two at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar before a gearbox problem caused him to drop down the field.

The winner of that race, Vitantonio Liuzzi, will once again be racing against Melandri, as will the likes of Gianni Morbidelli, Johnny Herbert and Jean Alesi.

Unlike the Qatar races, the Dubai event takes place by day, and with no prior experience of the track for Melandri.

MotoGP, 2009, Marco Melandri
