Elf Marc VDS Racing Team ready to master Misano

Round 14 of this year’s Moto2 World Championship brings Tony Arbolino and Senna Agius to Italy’s Adriatic Coast for the Grand Prix of San Marino.

  • Arbolino and Agius are both excited to take on the challenge posed by the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, which features the breathtaking high-speed Curvone turn 11 in its 4.22km layout.
  • Free Practice gets underway at 1055am local time on Friday morning with Arbolino and Agius scheduled to race over 25 laps at 1220pm on Sunday afternoon.



  • The 22-year-old is determined to use a passionate home crowd as inspiration in his quest to make a return to the podium this weekend.
  • Arbolino made great progress with his feeling and confidence on his Kalex machine last time out in Austria and that makes him optimistic he can fight for another rostrum in San Marino after he took an excellent third there in 2019 when fighting for the Moto3 title.

“I’d love to be battling at the front again this weekend”

“I can’t wait to get to Misano this weekend because it is another great chance for me to fight for the podium in front of my home fans. We had a great fourth place earlier this season in Mugello and I’d love to be battling at the front again this weekend in another big home race. I felt we got back on track with my feeling on the bike in Austria and I am sure we can make more improvements this weekend. As always I’ll be giving 100% to make sure we can show our potential and end my home race with a positive result.”



  • The Australian teenager replaces injured Sam Lowes for the second time and his main focus again is gaining further World Championship experience after a hugely encouraging debut at the Red Bull Ring earlier this month.
  • Agius finished 17th in Austria and he’s eyeing another strong showing this weekend having raced previously at Misano in the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship.

“I want to show better speed and enjoy the experience again”

“I’m going into Misano with the same approach as Austria and that’s improving each time I go out on track and learning from the best in the world. I don’t have too many expectations but I think we can have a really good weekend based on where I know I can improve from Austria. The good thing is this weekend I don’t need to learn the track like at Red Bull Ring. I’ve raced here before and this track is unique and one I like a lot. I really like the fast corners and my goal for this weekend is to do better than in Austria. I’m keeping both feet on the ground but hopefully I can show some better speed this weekend and most importantly enjoy the experience again.”
