Race On Ice fun for NGM Forward Racing

Race On Ice fun for NGM Forward Racing

Two days of fun, snow and motorsports gave the NGM Forward Racing team a chance to reconvene and bond ahead of the 2015 campaign.

Quad racing and a rally on ice at Livigno with all the Forward riders - Stefan Bradl, Loris Baz, Simone Corsi and Lorenzo Baldassarri - provided the perfect opportunity to relax and have some fun over the last weekend before MotoGP™ testing recommences.

The team’s new German recruit for 2015, Bradl commented, “Driving on ice is a great experience, it is so slippery! I like the winter time a lot, I enjoy being in the snow and skiing. In those activities always there is a lot of fun and this is the main thing. To be here in Livigno with all my teammates was great, we have created a great atmosphere with my team and the sponsors.”

Looking ahead to this week’s Sepang test, Bradl added, “I will try to get back on the bike in good form and be fast. Our main target is work on the bike and adapt to riding the Yamaha, but also we want to try to go fast and find a good setting that we can use for the race. Our goal for the upcoming season is win to the Open class and fight as much as possible in the top ten.”

For Bradl’s new premier class colleague Baz there is also excitement and great expectation ahead of Sepang 1. The young Frenchman stated, “In Valencia at the end of the last season the test was just for getting used to the bike and we are still modifying the position on the bike. The first real test will be this one, the first one where we can start to push. I just want to learn step by step and not make any mistakes. At the first race we will see where we are and then from there we can improve for the next races and can be closer to the top Open bike.”
