The third race of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup was intense for the Tech3 E-Racing team and both Tommaso Marcon and Lukas Tulovic scored significant points at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Starting from P8 Marcon got off well and fought up to P6 in the early stages of the race. Although he dropped to ninth place, he took home his best result in the MotoE class. In the meantime, Tulovic started from the front row, but went off the track on the first lap and had to regroup in the rear. On the finish line he managed to win four points in twelfth position.
“After such a great weekend so far, I unfortunately couldn’t earn the points we could have. I’m really disappointed for that. I had an impressive start, my reaction time was great, so I was directly next to Casadei on the first corner, but I didn’t know where to brake, so I went second into turn one and then I had some issues with my brakes. So, I was really struggling to stop the bike during all the race and I don’t know why yet. We will analyze this later in the data. Then I went wide two or three times and lost too many positions. In the end, I just made the best out of it and finished the race with a few points, but not as many as we were expected. Next week we will have two more chances."
“The race for me was quite difficult. It was not easy to stop the bike this morning and I wasn’t expecting that. So, I was fighting hard and in the last lap, I lost a bit of power, so I couldn’t defeat myself. I’m sorry for the team, for all the people here and for myself as well, because this race was not what I planned to show here at my home track."
