CIV Mugello, Moto3 round 1: Locatelli wins

Three drivers monopolized the first race of Moto3. The Lombard Andrea Locatelli (Mahindra Racing), Stefano Valtulini on Honda Five Racing AX52, and Luca Marini from Pesaro, on FTR rider Twelve Racing, created a big gap between themselves and their opponents from the early laps.
Like the previous race of Superbike, Moto3 was an exciting race, characterized by a neverending series of passes for the top positions. Thanks to a perfect last lap, at full throttle, Locatelli won the race, and crossed the finish line seven tenths ahead of Valtulini and Marini, who completed the podium.
“I am very happy with this result – the winner said -. I thought I had to try to win just before the finish line but I anticipated it all at the latest corner and I won without problems. For the race of tomorrow we will work to set up the bike even better”.
Stefano Manzi, Wayne Ryan and Andrea Migno battled up to the end to enter the top five.
