Baldassarri comes back to win his first career GP at home
after a fantastic weekend

An unbelievable Lorenzo Baldassarri, rider of the Forward Racing Team,
took home the first victory of his career at the San Marino Grand Prix in
front of his home crowd with a thrilling final that saw him grab the lead
on the last lap.

"Balda", after a great start, immediately began to battle for the leadership
of the race losing some ground to Rins who fled while behind him the fight
raging. The Italian did not lose his concentration and, after getting away
from the pursuers, began a furious comeback by filing lap after lap the two s
econds of delay he had accumulated. After studying the maneuver for two
laps, Lorenzo made it on the last one, winning the GP.

Good race also for Luca Marini who was starting form the back of the grid, he came back to achieve the thirteenth
position, ending up in the point zone. The rider from Pesaro had a very good start catching up the middle of the pack
and then he took advantage of the mistakes of the riders ahead of him to bring home three points.

"It was really an amazing thing to have won here the first time,
in the circuit dedicated to Marco Simoncelli. It's really a special
day with my fan club coming here on a special date that we
commemorated with our livery. It was a fantastic race, I still
cannot believe it, I realized that Rins had gone off when I
crossed the line. Thanks to everyone: my team, to Giovanni,
the VR46 Riders Academy, to my family and to those who
came to cheer for us this weekend."

  "It is difficult to comment on a race like this because the emotions
  wins over words.  Winning here at Misano has a special flavor
  because we are at home and it is indescribable. We worked hard
  all the weekend, Balda gave his 120% to recover the lead, he is a
  champion and this is his way of showing it. Today it is a memorable
  day that we dedicate to all those who have supported us and with
  whom we want to commemorate the September 11 and the memory
  of Marco Simoncelli. I am happy and grateful to all our sponsors and
  friends who are part of the great Forward family.

  To share this joy with them is for me a great pleasure and honor.
