Misano Circuit Italy

The Misano circuit was constructed in 1972 and has since undergone several modifications. A regular scene for Italian GP  throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, it returned to the MotoGP calendar in 2007, when the racing direction changed from counter-clockwise to clockwise.

Renamed in 2012 as the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, it’s 4.18 km in length and features five left turns and nine rights.

Marc Marquez has an incredible record in Misano, having taken a remarkable victory in mixed conditions last year and finished second in 2013 (MotoGP). He also won in 2012 and 2011 (Moto2) and in 2010 (125cc).

Dani Pedrosa has also enjoyed good MotoGP results at the track, with one victory (2010), a second place (2011) and three third places (2014, 2013, 2009).


Marc Marquez
“All in all we got an okay result in England, as even though we didn’t make the ideal choice with the front tyre, in the end we lost just three points. Now we head to Misano, which is quite a different track as it is twisty and slow. In San Marino I expect to fight again for the podium if we work well during the weekend. I’m happy to go racing in Italy, where I really hope the weather will be nice and give us the chance to make the most of every session.”


Dani Pedrosa
“We arrive in Misano from a race that helped us to gain a little bit more confidence and motivation. Lap by lap, I was better able to understand our strong points and weak points. We need to keep the same style in the next race weekend, focusing in the practices, not making too many changes on the bike and working to understand how to use the tyres better, choosing those that adapt better to the track. We must remain completely focused on the job.”

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.
