MotoGP: Mattia Pasini on board the GP9 for 3 day test at Mugello




PRESS RELEASE
Monday Sep 21 2009PRESS RELEASE - - Bologna (Italy)

MATTIA PASINI IS BACK ON BOARD THE DUCATI MOTOGP BIKE FOR THREE-DAY TEST AT MUGELLO


Prior to the next MotoGP round, to take place at the Portuguese track of Estoril on 4th October, Mattia Pasini will be back on board the Desmosedici GP9 during a three-day test session at Mugello from 22nd to 24th September. He will ride alongside official test rider Vittoriano Guareschi under the supervision of Filippo Preziosi. Pasini, currently fifth in the 250cc World Championship standings, already rode the Ducati in testing after the Czech MotoGP on 17th August and he was immediately at ease on the GP9, despite the test being affected by the rain.

The Ducati technicians, impressed by the Italian rider and his way of working, decided together with Mattia to do another test, and therefore include him in this week’s pre-planned testing at Mugello.

I disagree kev,I think its too big a jump for him at this stage in his career and probably the wrong bike. He's unable to run the same pace as simoncelli n bautista on a very similair machine so what hope does he have on a satellite motogp bike. He'd be better off in moto2 trying to be a world champ before stepping up to the premier class

Deej I agree it may be a bit early, which is why I said at some point, as I believe at some point Ducati need to get an Italian rider on their bike as they did with Caparossi. Is good to know he is being considered, not sure what is options in the GP2 class are
