A visit to the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello and the Italian GP is eagerly anticipated for the paddock as a whole but for the home riders and teams, just like SKY Racing Team VR46, it’s always an extra special weekend.
The Gran Premio d’Italia Oakley means many things for the all-Italian setup but there’s one thing that has become a tradition for them: their spectacular tricolour livery. On race day, we’ll see SKY Racing Team VR46’s Dennis Foggia, Celestino Vietti, Luca Marini and Nicolo Bulega donning green, white and red in the Moto3™ and Moto2™ races as they aim to get good results in front of the home faithful.
Pablo Nieto, Team Manager: “As a rider, I remember that the sequence Arrabbiata 1-2 was perhaps the most beautiful and at the same time technical turn of the whole Championship. To be done full gas. Today, as a Team Manager, we arrive at Mugello with many expectations: it is the home GP for the Team and it will be a crescendo of emotions till Sunday when we will show to everybody the special livery for the race. After Le Mans, we spent two days in Barcelona for testing. A track, the Catalan one, very similar to Mugello and where we worked hard to better face the next two races. In Moto2, Luca and Nicolo can still reduce the distance from the very first guys and hit important placements. In Moto3, Dennis and Celestino, after a great recovery, want to confirm themselves among the protagonists.”
