With the month of August the 5th Round of the Italian Speed ​​Championship also ends at the Mugello Circuit, a Championship that once again ensured entertainment and fun, especially in the SuperSport 600 class, where 12 riders were fighting for the victory up to the 'last lap.

In this very tight battle the rider Kevin Manfredi was once again in the game, demonstrating tenacity and stubbornness driving the Yamaha R6 of the AltoGo Racing Team.

The Spezzino since Thursday has been fast in all conditions: both on a dry track as in free practice and in qualifying 1 where he finished 8th and 11th respectively just 0.8 tenths from pole position; both on a wet track where he covered fewer laps than his rivals, but immediately found the right feeling, so much so that he finished 4th place in qualifying 2.

In both races Kevin managed to make two excellent comebacks:

The first was on Saturday afternoon in Race 1, which ended with the 9th position at the finish line just 1.3 seconds from the victory, a result practically decreed at the photofinish after the checkered flag saw 10 drivers pass all together across the finish line.

The second on Sunday afternoon in Race 2, in which Kevin after a perfect start set a winning pace, fought for the podium for more than half the race, seeing him then vanish at the finish line for the game of trails.

Kevin therefore had to settle for 5th position just 0.2 tenths from second place, earning important points for the championship standings and acquiring new data in view of the next matches.

Kevin: "A weekend always among the protagonists, together with my team we improved the set up of the bike and we managed to fight for the podium in both races, making a further improvement from Saturday to Sunday.

Compared to the beginning of the season on this track where we struggled to chase the top 10 and we were far from the podium, these two races have been very positive. Obviously I wanted to achieve more, I believed in it until the end but I couldn't do more than that. We have collected important data this weekend that I hope will be useful for the season finale in the European and World Championships, as well as for the CIV itself. "

Kevin Manfredi will now start another very busy month, with 3 rounds in a row in WorldSBK between Magny Cours, Barcelona and Jerez, in which it will be of fundamental importance to finish every race to the maximum to be able to get as many points as possible without making mistakes.

Kevin thanks all the sponsors and technical partners of the 2021 season.
