The past weekend’s racing was one to remember for the Sidi colours, as Sidi Vortice boots became major players on the Donington circuit during the GP of Great Britain. It was another extraordinary double in the 250 class, with the Japanese rider for Honda Hiroshi Aoyama coming in first, and Spain’s Alvaro Bautista (Aspar Team Aprilia) in second place. The two aces from the Sidi Sport stables are confirming themselves as true matadors in the 250 class for the 2009 season. The two Sidi pilots are now locked in a duel for first place, with the Japanese in the lead at 159 points, ahead of the Spaniard who follows with 144 points.
Sidi is also having a great run in the Moto GP, with the outstanding American riding Yamaha Colin Edwards making it to the podium in second place on the heels of winner Dovizioso, and in the 125 class with the very young English pilot Scott Redding (Team BQR Aprilia), who made it to third place on the podium on his home town circuit.
From Great Britain to the Czech Republic, the song remains the same with a fantastic Sidi double podium on the circuit in Brno for the Supersport race. Yamaha’s French rider Fabien Foret clenched victory while second place went to the Australian Anthony West (Team Stiggy Honda).
