It’s been a challenging first quarter for the Noale squad but they’ll hope the extravaganza at Misano will be the boost they’ve been needing
After looking like Ducati’s nearest rival coming into the new campaign, Aprilia has flattered to deceive so far in 2023. Despite being continuously competitive throughout Free Practice, all four riders have failed to convert their obvious pace into any real landmark results. Maverick Viñales’ opening weekend podium in Portimao is the only visit to either a Sprint or Grand Prix rostrum for an Aprilia rider so far this season.
But after over 15,000 fans descended on the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this past weekend for Aprilia’s All Star event, they’ll be hoping the energy and passion shown will be carried through to their home Grand Prix at Mugello.
