Interesting Friday in San Marino
Jaume Masia has finished the 10h on the combined standings of Today’s practice sessions and teammate Dennis Foggia the 11th. A positive result to start the weekend.
The second triplet of the 2020 season has started in San Marino at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, one of the most iconic tracks of the calendar and always a special place to stop by. The track has welcomed the Championship with hot temperatures, a shining sun and finally, some public. 10.000 people will be able to sit on the grandstands to enjoy the spectacle this weekend. We’ve missed the crowd so much!
Regarding today’s performance on track, the first session this morning has been a little bit complicated as neither Masia nor Foggia have had the best feeling on the bike and have finished the 14th and the 19th respectively. However, it’s important to point out that practice sessions results aren’t necessarily a reflection of the true potential, and that was clear on the FP2. But again, things haven't been easy: the last session of the day has been shorter for Dennis and Jaume as both have been sanctioned (and seven other riders) due to slow riding during the FP1. They’ve had to miss the first 15 minutes of the second session of the day.
And finally, when it was crunch time, Masia and Foggia seemed to feel a little better on their bikes and crossed the line the 10th (1’43.155) and the 11th (1’43.163) respectively, not a bad result considering they've had less time to practice. Of course we aim to be in front, but we could fairly say that it’s a decent reference to start the weekend. Besides, Dennis’ bike has been the fastest of the day (208.0km/h) and Masia’s one the third (207.6km/h), the whole crew is determined on giving its best and the riders can't wait to fight in front of the crowd. Let’s perfectly mix all the previous things and let’s see how the show ends!

Dennis Foggia, 11th
“It’s been quite good, we’ve had some difficulties but we’ve worked hard, we’ll keep doing it tomorrow and I believe we can do a good job, I have a positive feeling”.
