The winner of the 2022 National Trophy, with the BMW from Gianluca Galesi's Pistard team, Gabriele Giannini, will test the Forward team's Moto2 at Silverstone tomorrow. An idea born during a live broadcast by blogger Gianluigi Ragno. A sign of the times, given that young fans seem to follow more broadcasts on the Internet than TV itself.
"Our intention would be to have him do a wild card during the Misano GP," Cuzari said. "But we’re taking this test very calmly. Giannini knows neither the bike, nor the tires, nor the track. We’ve prepared a motorcycle from scratch for him. No pressure, Gabriele just has to think about riding and gaining confidence."
As you may recall, Giannini had recently turned down a proposal from the Kawasaki Puccetti team, in order to make his Superbike debut with the Kawasaki. Gabriele is a rider without a suitcase, but he has already shown he’s going strong and deserves a chance to get out of the confines of the National.
The Forward-Triumph has a mixed aluminium-tube frame built by the Swiss factory.
