25 years ago Doriano Romboni was racing his last Italian GP in the panorama of the then World Championship, now called MotoGP. 25 years later on the same stage, but in a totally new category, there is another Spezzino on the starting grid at the Italian Grand Prix, Kevin Manfredi, who in his first experience on this circuit with the MotoE proves to be ready for fight with the protagonists of the MotoE World Championship.

A weekend of important growth for Kevin who needed redemption after Le Mans, in fact starting on Friday on the right foot, constantly remaining in the top 10 and gaining more and more confidence on the Energica Ego Corsa bike.

The 27-year-old Spezzino proves to be fast and concrete by finishing 2nd in Qualifying 1 and thus winning access to Qualifying 2 which sees the 10 fastest in the category on the track.

In QP2 a paw on the third lap allows him to get a great second row alongside the 2019 World Champion, conquering the 6th absolute time and being the only rookie in the top 10.

Kevin: “A spectacular weekend, racing in Italy with our public is something unique, even more so if you do it on a magnificent track like that of Mugello!

I had a lot of fun in the saddle, the Team put me in a position to ride 100% and we reached the goal set at the beginning of the season, that of getting to fight for the top positions.

In race 1 due to some speed problems we only finished in 10th place, in race 2 I managed to be in 4th place for a while but I finished in 9th.

The 9th place in race 2 is very tight for me, I was overtaken by three riders under the yellow flag and this made me lose ground and difficult time to recover with the few laps remaining.

However, I want to see the glass half full and be positive in view of Assen where it will certainly not be easy to replicate but where we will arrive with what it takes to do so. "

Kevin Manfredi thus closes his third race in MotoE with two excellent Top 10s and with the awareness of being able to fight with the best, there is still a lot of work to do, but the road is the right one.

This weekend Kevin will be busy with the Endurance World Championship in the long-awaited 24 hours of SPA Francorchamps, in the following weekends he will be present at the Italian Speed ​​Championship at Mugello and then we will see him again with the MotoE World Championship in Assen, a new month full of races and challenges!

Kevin thanks all the sponsors and technical partners of the 2022 season.
