WOMEN'S EUROPEAN CUP: MISANO 15/16 MAY ELF GRAND PRIX ROUND 3
Misano World Circuit is ready to welcome the girls of the Women’s European Cup for the third round of the 2021 season ELF GRAND PRIX : after the two rounds held at the Mugello Circuit, the Women’s Championship will land on the Romagna track with the first free practice session scheduled at 10:15am on Friday 14 May, followed by the second session at 03:25pm. Saturday 15 will be entirely dedicated to qualifying, with the first round that will start at 12:20am and the second stint that will decide the pole woman scheduled for 06:20pm. Sunday 16 May the 10 lap race with the start scheduled at 10:35am.
Rookie Sara Sánchez of the CM Racing Kawasaki team is intent on confirming the surprising results obtained at the debut, where the 46 points resulting from the second place in the opening race and the victory in the second heat (with the best lap too) placed her in top of the championship.
To complicate the plans, we expect a fierce Roberta Ponziani(Pro Dina E&E Team kawasaki) first and third with the Kawasaki of the Prodina team in the double Tuscan challenge and just 5 points behind the leader. Desire for redemption for the reigning champion of the Yamaha Trasimeno team Beatriz Neila Santos (Team Trasimeno Yamaha): despite a weekend that saw her constantly fighting for the top, the Spaniard was unable to get on the top step of the podium and currently occupies the third position in the ranking at 9 from his compatriot.
Unfortunately, another protagonist of the opening match will be absent: Alexandra Pelikánová (Yamaha Motoxracing Team) is in fact still in convalescence after the accident that saw her involved in Race 2 together with Sabrina Dalla Manna (Yamaha Team Gradara Corse) forced to redeem herself after the difficult weekend of Mugello.
Isis Carreno(GP3 Kawasaki), after an excellent debut with the Kawasaki of the GP3 team, is called to repair the small gap that separates her from the leading quintet; same goal for Sara Cabrini (Team Kawasaki ALS), Masha Medvedeva (Team Yamaha Red & Black) and Aurelia Cruciani, rider of the Yamaha BRT team still struggling with some discomfort to the injured ankle in winter. Giulia Vercilli (Team extreme Kawasaki)waits the result of the resonance to confirm her presence on the grid; expected instead the return of Laura Sbaccheri (Runner Bike KTM).
