The curtain falls on the last test before the start of the 2016 season for Lorenzo Baldassarri and Luca Marini of the Forward Racing team. Good feeling for both riders who continued yesterday’s work at the Losail circuit.
Baldassarri, again the first of the Italians, closed with an excellent fifth place in the combined standings, stopping the clock at 1: 59.770 just three-tenths behind the leader Sam Lowes.
Marini focused on trying different solutions on the back and on the front; he made a race simulation and had an overall good feeling ahead of the first GP of the season. He ended the three-days in 24th position with a personal best of 2:01.293.

“It was a positive three-day testing, we finally made the step we needed and we improved a lot in the last session. I did some short runs to try different solution on the rear and at the end we made a choice that helped me improve a lot once we changed the tires”.

“I’m pretty happy with this three-day test, everything went as planned. Today we tried to work some more on the bike and on the setting. In the second practice round I did a race simulation and it went well, but I got tired and in the third round I did not improve my time much. We already have a good basis for the next week and I feel confident”.

Riccardo Tafà
Riccardo was born in Giulianova, graduated in law at the University of Bologna and decided to do something else. After a stint at ISFORP (public relations training institute) in Milan, he moved to England. He began his career in London in PR, first at MSP Communication and then at Counsel Limited. Then, following his unhealthy passion for sport, he moved to Jean Paul Libert's SDC and started working in two and four-wheelers, this was in 1991/1992. A brief move to Monaco followed, where he worked alongside the owner of Pro COM, a sports marketing agency founded by Nelson Piquet. He returned to Italy and started working in the first person as RTR, first a consulting firm and then a sports marketing company. 
Back in 2001 RTR won the ESCA award for the best sports MKTG project in Italy in the year 2000. Among other things, RTR obtained the highest score among all categories and represented Italy in the ESCA European Contest. From that moment on, RTR will no longer participate in other national or international awards. Over the years he takes some satisfaction and swallows a lot of toads. But he is still here, writing in a disenchanted and simple manner, with the aim of giving practical (unsolicited) advice and food for thought.
