Pasini brings home best result yet at Assen

Monday, 2 July 2012

The seventh race of the MotoGP™ class for the 2012 season saw Speed Master’s Mattia Pasini record his best premier-class result yet on board his ART machine.

Pasini obtained his best result so far for 2012 season on board his ART machine in the GP at the Dutch TT Assen circuit. Starting from fifteenth spot on the grid, Pasini moved up a few placements in the initial phases of the race, staying with the CRT group that was ahead of him. The Italian defended his position with strength, setting a good pace and trying to keep in touch with the other riders once the tyres began to wear out.

The Italian crossed the finishing line in tenth position, third among the CRT machines, obtaining 6 points in the championship classification, where he’s currently in fifteenth position.

"After all, I am happy. We finished in tenth position and, on the whole, this was a positive weekend. We made a step forward; I stayed with the CRT group where Espargaró, De Puniet and Pirro were, even if by half of the race I had some issues. I’m satisfied with the improvements we carried out, as the data we put together is important for the next races. Now we’ll look forwards to Sachsenring, hopefully we’ll make some extra progress and we’ll keep working this way."
