TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 – Round six of the Junior FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 world championship at Jerez

The Jerez de la Frontera circuit in Spain has hosted the sixth round of the Junior FIM CEV Repsol world championship this weekend. The TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 was out on track with its three riders, Spaniard David Salvador and Italians Nicola Carraro and Raffaele Fusco.

In qualifying, the trio were unable to express their full potential and exploit the characteristics of their TM bikes. David Salvador (1’47”061) finished in fourteenth place, Carraro (1’47”299) twenty-first and Fusco (1’47”467) just twenty-seventh after crashing during his best lap.

With these results, Salvador lined up on the fifth row, Carraro from the seventh and Fusco from the tenth in the day’s two races. In race 1, Salvador was catching the leading group when he was hit by another rider who caused him to crash. Carraro also crashed while trying to make up ground, while Fusco crossed the line sixteenth, just outside the points zone.

In race 2, David Salvador put in a great performance, crossing the line fourth after demonstrating very fast pace throughout the race. Carraro finished seventeenth, while Fusco was forced to retire due to a technical problem.

The TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 will be back on track for the next round of the Junior FIM CEV Repsol world championship taking place on 17-18 September at the Misano World Circuit, alongside the MotoGP world championship.

Autodromo di Jerez – Spain

Race 1: 1) Ogden (GasGas) – 2) Munoz (KTM) – 3) Ortola (KTM) – 4) Munoz (KTM) – 5) Holgado (GasGas) – 6) Moreira (Honda) ……… 16) Fusco (TM) …… nc) Salvador (TM) – nc) Carraro (TM)

Gara2: 1) Munoz (KTM) – 2) Ortola (KTM) – 3) Holgado (GasGas) – 4) Salvador (TM) – 5) Munoz (KTM) – 6) Alonso (GasGas) ……… 17) Carraro (TM) ………. DNF) Fusco (TM)

Nicola Carraro: “We did better than we have in previous races, but unfortunately we were unlucky. Our bike is now really quick and we can fight with the fastest riders. Unfortunately, my grid position conditioned the two races. In race 1, I was pushing to the max to climb back up the field and I crashed, while in race 2 my progress was slowed in the final stages by tyre wear, which meant I finished seventeenth. Beyond the results, I’m pleased with the potential we’ve shown and that I’ll try to harness in the next races.”

David Salvador: “It was a very positive weekend for our team. We were immediately fast and I felt good with the bike. I think we’ve taken a good step forward compared to previous races. In race 1 I was making up positions and close to the leaders when a rider caused me to crash. I couldn’t do anything to prevent it, and it was a real pity because I set the fastest lap of the race and could have battled for the podium. In race 2, I was able to climb back up and came close to the top three. I’m pleased, not only with fourth place but especially for the race that we are constantly improving and can now battle for victory.”

Raffaele Fusco: “The weekend started well, and we immediately got into a good rhythm. Unfortunately I crashed in the first qualifying, the session in which we set times and so I had to start from twenty-seventh place. This conditioned my races. In the first, I made up many positions and was close to the leaders but a contact with another rider slowed me down and I finished sixteenth. In race 2, I unfortunately had to retire due to a small technical problem which prevented me from completing my recovery. We’ll make up for it at the next Misano round.”

Mattia Serafini: “Another extremely positive weekend. We’ve worked hard and effectively and have maintained good pace. We need to improve in qualifying because it was our starting positions that conditioned us in the races. I’m pleased with Salvator’s fourth place in race 2 and am sure that if he hadn’t been knocked down, he’d have done well in the first race too. Fusco and Carraro completed two good races, and just need to start further forward. We’re organising tests in order to become even more competitive and continue to improve.”

Motard, 3 round European and World Championship in Forcarei: L30Racing keep games open in all class!


The L30 Racing Team riding TM Racing m.y. 2021 makes a stop in Spain, in Forcarei for the third round of the European and World Championships, fielding the usual impressive squad and obtaining great results with the two senior riders of respective classes: Thomas Chareyre and Kevin Vandi, the Frenchman in fact wins the Fast Race and was second of the day on the high level Forcarei’s track.
Vandi climbs on the podium and keeps the championship open, thanks to an amazing second heat.


In S1 class, Thomas Chareyre, Diego Monticelli and Patrick Pals are at the starting grid on the SMX 450 factory, ready to do battle.
In race 1 Thomas Chareyre starts well and after six laps he launches the pass that will allow him to move into the lead. Chareyre stretches significantly with each pass, but a mistake during the twelfth lap will prevent him from taking a victory already in his hands.
Diego Monticelli started from seventh place, will be able to do a good comeback, finishing fifth at the finish; Patrick Pals appeared to be growing, his seventh place in the race, the result of some strong overtaking.
Race 2 is run with the “Fast race” formula, Chareyre is second at the start, but within a few corners he takes the lead, not conceding anything to his opponents and winning in front of checkerd flag.
As in the previous round, Monticelli is the author of a regular race, maintaining the sixth position from the first to the last lap.
Pals instead obtained the ninth place, unable to replicate the performance of the opening heat.
In the super final Chareyre sprints in third place and will be able to conquer the second position after having fought a good duel, this result also gives him the second overall and the conquest of further points in his advance.
Monticelli manages to repeat the sixth place he won in the Fast Race and thus earns the fifth place of the day.
Still in attack mode the race of Pals who after a few overtakes will get the eighth place.


In S2 class Luca Bozza touches the podium with the final fourth place, while Steve Bonnal’s day is strangely characterized by too many mistakes and two less than optimal starts.
In race 1 Luca Bozza and Steve Bonnal are both authors of two starts to forget, Bozza makes a mistake in the initial stages and loses contact with the leading group, while Bonnal slips into the dirt section, effectively leaving the door open to his opponents. At the finish line Bozza is fifth, while Bonnal is sixth.
In race 2 an excellent start for Bozza, who sprints in the leading group setting very interesting lap times, a performance to remember, which translates into fourth place in the heats, but also in the overall standings.


In S4 class Vandi is the only one to get on the podium, obtaining third place and keeping the championship games open, while Sanchioni manages to hit the podium only in the first moto, due to a crash in the final one.
In race 1 Alessandro Sanchioni is very fast at the start and will be able to maintain the second position for about half of the race, giving up only at the end, but with an excellent third place.
Not far away is Kevin Vandi who, after a short recovery, will come fourth right away.
In race 2 Vandi guesses the start and above all improves his pace compared to the opening race, after having been in the lead for several laps, Vandi will only bend to the leader of the classification, finishing second and conquering a well-deserved podium.
An exceptional start for Sanchioni, behind his mate Vandi, but when he is in second place Alessandro makes a mistake, ending up at the bottom of the very fast group. For him only the ninth place.

IVAN LAZZARINI: “For this third round of the championship another solid race for Chareyre, who shortens the distance from the leader in the standings, all despite the crash of the first race when he was firmly in the lead. This second place of the day is very useful for our goal: to win.
Good race for Monticelli, who managed to overtake himself, reaching a deserved fifth place overall, Pals continues his growth, further improving and conquering eighth place.
As for the S2 European Championship, we are not very satisfied, because the results obtained could certainly be better: Luca Bozza and Steve Bonnal unfortunately made mistakes in the first race and even the starts in Steve’s case in race 2 were not good. However, Luca redeemed himself in the second heat, getting a great start and finishing fourth.
In S4 class Sanchioni and Vandi were fast, but there was a lack of regularity, in fact only Kevin managed to get on the podium, also thanks to the great result of race 2 who finished in second place. Alessandro, on the other hand, pay for the crash of the final stage.
Globally the championships are still open and therefore we will fight in Sestriere to return to victory”.

Wild Card in Misano CIV for TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 riders

The TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 concluded today at the Misano World Circuit the fourth round of the CIV Italian Championship, to which his three riders participated as wild cards. It was an important opportunity for the riders to keep in training, and for the Italian team technicians to continue the development of their TM Moto3, in anticipation of the round of the Junior World Championship that will be played in September right on this track.

Saturday, at the end of the two qualification sessions, the three TM riders have obtained the positions from sixth to eighth. Raffaele Fusco (1’44″129) finished sixth place, followed by Nicola Carraro (1’44” 350) and by David Salvador (1’44 “544).

With these results Fusco started from the second row, while Carraro and Salvador from the third in the two races of this weekend. The Spanish has started well at the red lights off and brought to sixth position, followed by Fusco, while Carraro was tenth. Later Salvador remained in the group of pursuers, alternating between the eighth and sixth place, and then cut the finish line in fifth position. Fusco and Carraro race was very similar to the one of the Spanish, but while Fusco concluded in sixth position, Carraro, who was close to his teammates throughout the race, has unfortunately been penalized by a second for passing the track limits and was declaimed in tenth position.

Today’s race started in the afternoon but was stopped during the second lap for some crashes, one of which also involved Fusco and Salvador, who fortunately did not report any physical consequence. They could take part in the second part of the race, reduced to 14 laps. After the second start, unfortunately, Fusco immediately accused a technical problem, which forced him to withdraw. Salvador started very fast from the third row and reached the fifth position, to then keep it up to the checkered flag. Carraro was sixth from the first to the last lap, but having still been penalized by a second for having passed the limits of the track, he finished the race in seventh place.

The next event on the track for the TM Racing Factory Team Moto3 is now fixed for the weekend of 21 and 22 August in Jerez, Spain, where the sixth round of the Junior FIM CEV Repsol World Championship will be held.


CIV Campionato Italiano Velocità – Misano World Circuit

Race1: 1) Bertelle (KTM) – 2) Surra (KTM) – 3) Van den Goorberg (BeOn) – 4) Bartolini (KTM) – 5) Salvador (TM)  – 6) Fusco (TM) …… 10) Carraro (TM)

Raffaele Fusco: “There were two interesting races, useful for us to become familiar with our bikes on the track where we will race a round of the Junior World Championship. Yesterday I closed at sixth place, while today I could take advantage of the experience made in the race1, but unfortunately a technical problem forced me to retire. I’m sorry, but the important thing will be doing well in the next Jerez appointment in late August”.


Nicola Carraro: “Our goal was to find a good set up for our bikes on this track, depending on the world’s round that we will run in September, and I can say that we did it. In the race we tried above all to try some new solutions without looking at the result. It was very hot and it wasn’t easy, but I think it was useful to do it. And now we focus on the weekend in Jerez in August”.


David Salvador: “I had race on this track only a few years ago in the Rookies Cup, but with a different bike, while now I have a TM and the asphalt was completely redone. As a result we are quite satisfied especially for the data we have collected, and that there will be useful for the round of the Junior World Championship that we will pay here in Misano in September. We also got to try some things usually we don’t have time to try on the race weekends, and this is an important thing for the prosecution of our season. ”


Mattia Serafini – Team Manager: “As soon as we returned from Aragon and fixed the bikes, and it was time to came here in Misano. Our goal was to be ready for the September round of the Junior World Championship that will play on this track. We worked on the set-up of ours bikes, collecting data that we could not collect on September weekend, when we are immediately engaged in qualifications and race. I am happy with the constant growth of our riders, who are increasingly mature and competitive. They worked very well with the team, without taking risks. A weekend undoubtedly useful and positive”.

ENDUROGP 2021 RD4 – SWEDEN – Ruprecht wins Day1, Macoritto and Pavoni leader in their class

Skovde, a tourist village a few kilometres from Gothenburg, hosted an unusual world GP this 2021 season.

The fourth world round began on the evening of Thursday, July 22, with the Super Test, won by our Australian driver Will Ruprecht and ended on Saturday, July 24, when Day 2 took place.

The Swedish GP was characterized not only by a different race program than usual but also by a very particular course designed for the occasion by the FMCK Military Motoclub and which included a Cross Test located inside a quarry, an Extreme Test on a ski slope and an Enduro Test in a classic sandy forest.

Will Ruprecht literally dominated the opening day by winning both, the prestigious Enduro GP, and the E2 class. The Australian Rider ran an almost perfect race and where won four of the nine special stages and finishing second in other five.

On Saturday, however, things got complicated in the final when Will Ruprecht crashed in the third Enduro Test, at the start of the last lap, throwing the final podium and the fight for first place in the Enduro GP in the air.

The final score is a fifth place in the Enduro GP and a second place in the E2 class.

Another weekend of absolute dominators in the Junior class for our two riders Lorenzo Macoritto and Matteo Pavoni.

In Sweden, our two riders fought a great battle on the edge of the seconds. Lorenzo ran a great race, winning both days of competition in the Junior and thus reopening the championship and the fight with his teammate Matteo.

Difficult weekend for Matteo Cavallo who had to stop in Day1 due to a fuel pump problem, and in Day2, while he was fighting for the podium with four other riders, for crashed heavily, without serious consequences, but had to give up. This difficult moment will also pass for Matteo who will race the ISDE with the Italian national team in the E3 class with the TM 300 FI 2T.

Jarno: “Even this week end of the race was incandescent. The leaders of the EnduroGp are always at the limit of their possibilities and this tires not only physically but also mentally.

After a first day as dominator Will paid a little for this pressure,  giving space to his opponents at the end. In this sport you need great experience and Will is making a treasure race after race.

Surely his opponents on this front are more prepared! … but rest assured that we will get there ! In Junior Matteo and Lorenzo have gave a great show especially at the end of the two days with times from the top five of the EnduroGp. Lorenzo in this race had a twist more than Matteo by deservedly winning.

Now there will be the Six Days with the National team and then move on to the championship final !! Never give up!”

The end of the season will be incandescent but now the Enduro World Championship takes a long break and stops for about two months and then moves to Zschopau on 9 and 10 October for the German GP.
