Rabat: “I love the speed of Mugello”

Rabat: “I love the speed of Mugello”

For the first time in his career, Tito Rabat will get to experience the run to San Donato on a full MotoGP™ machine.

Until the French GP, Tito Rabat’s rookie season in the MotoGP™ World Championship was off to an incredibly consistent start as the Spaniard had finished every race. Sadly this streak came to an end in France as he crashed out of the race but learning several valuable lessons along the way. The Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider is now ready to get back on track and continue his premier class apprenticeship at a track he loves. Having twice won Moto2™ World Championship races at the Italian track, Rabat is no stranger to Mugello but has never experienced with a 1000cc MotoGP™ prototype machine underneath him. Adjusting his braking markers and lines around Mugello will be another new challenge for him to overcome, but one that Rabat is ready for as he eagerly awaits the thrilling speeds of the main straight.  

Tito Rabat: “Despite the disappointment of the race in Le Mans, I learned a lot and it was the first time I was able to get into a very good battle with some other riders and pass them before I crashed. I go to Mugello feeling positive and excited to ride a MotoGP bike at one of the fastest and most beautiful tracks in the world. It is a track I really like and I’ve had some success on in the past, but it will be a completely different challenge on a MotoGP bike. I know Jack says he can’t wait to see my face the first time I go down the straight at an incredible speed and brake for the first corner, but I love the speed of Mugello. It is a special track with a great atmosphere and I hope to be competitive and back in the points.”
