Pedrosa is erased from Misano

Dani Pedrosa is erased from the Italian appointment.

Therefore, and despite the fact that the MSMA (association of MotoGP teams, gave the go-ahead for a third wild card in Misano, Only Michelle Pirro (Ducati) and Stefan Bradl (Honda) will be on the track on September 19. Of course, Pedrosa is expected to be present at the next IRTA tests, which will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday after the race at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

With the departure of Pedrosa from the list of pilots signed up for the Misano GP, The doubt that KTM left after the Spanish’s participation in Austria is put to an end. A change of plans that does not harm the brand in its work with the former Honda driver. In fact, the factory itself indicated last month that they would support the decision of their leader in the test team: “If Pedrosa decides that he no longer wants to race at Misano, there will be no problem for us. But if, instead, you enjoy the Spielberg experience and want to race again, we will be happy. You do not have to give more importance to whether you want to do it or not, Dani is very important to us, whether he runs races or not ”.
