Luke takes positives away from challenging Misano round

 In News

Expectations were high for the home race for Motozoo Me Air Racing, and in fact the appointment in Misano Adriatico brought the satisfaction of another victory in the World Supersport Challenge, the special ranking of the World Supersport Championship dedicated to the teams competing in the European races of the World Championship.

However, the Misano Adriatico weekend was hardly a walk in the park for the team captained by Fabio Uccelli. Some electronic problems plagued both Luke Power’s and Tom Booth-Amos’s ZX6R, forcing the two bikes to the pits for a longtime. In qualifying Luke was twenty-sixth.

Race one was characterized by the withdrawal of Luke Power, blocked by electronic problems even before the green light.

Race two instead saw both Motozoo Me Air Racing bikes reach the finish line. Lukean excellent start was thwarted by a multiple fall at the first corner that almost involved him too. Luke still managed to gain some positions, but the time lost avoiding the fall at the first corner made him lose contact with the group further ahead of him.

Luke Power #68:

“It was a difficult weekend, because I didn’t get to ride much. I feel more and more comfortable with the bike, my times are constantly improving and the synergy with my Ninja is better and better. Bad luck stopped me for race one, where I didn’t even ride a lap due to electronic problems. In race two, on the other hand, I managed to ride pretty well, even though the problems persisted. I could have done much better because I started very well, but a multiple contact between some riders involved me too. I managed to stay on the track, but of course I lost time. I felt I improved constantly for the rest of the race, which gives me confidence for the next race in Donington!”.
