Pasini on the Desmosedici GP9 at Mugello

Prior to the next MotoGP round, to take place at the Portuguese track of Estoril on 4th October, Mattia Pasini will be back on board the Desmosedici GP9 during a three-day test session at Mugello from 22nd to 24th September. He will ride alongside official test rider Vittoriano Guareschi under the supervision of Filippo Preziosi.

Pasini, currently fifth in the 250cc World Championship standings, already rode the Ducati in testing after the Czech MotoGP on 17th August and he was immediately at ease on the GP9, despite the test being affected by the rain. The Ducati technicians, impressed by the Italian rider and his way of working, decided together with Mattia to do another test, and therefore include him in this week’s pre-planned testing at Mugello.
