Baldolini forced to retire at Donington Park

For the second consecutive race Alex Baldolini failed to finish, forced to retire his privately entered MV Agusta in the recent World Supersport race at Donington Park.

Racing with a completely stock engine, following the technical problems in Imola, Alex was racing well and could well have finished inside the top ten had he not been forced to pull in.

A former podium finisher in WSS, Alex and the entire Race Department ATK#25 squad know that they have the potential to fight for the podium again in 2015 and are working hard to be back in the points at the next round of the championship in Portugal in ten days time.

Alex Baldolini: “It's been another difficult weekend here at Donington. We had many problems and we had to compete with a Superstock engine instead of a Supersport one which put us on the back foot from the start. We worked really hard to find a good setup for my MV and I got to find a perfect feeling, especially in the last section of the track. During the race I was overtaking other riders and I'm sure I could have fought, at least, for the 10th position, but after few laps my bike stopped and I was forced to retire. It's a pity because we are losing more points after the zero score in Imola, but this is racing. Now we are working hard to fix the problems to be ready for Portimao where I am confident that we can return to the battle.”

Despite the non-score, Alex remains in 9th position in overall in the World Championship standings with the next race taking place at the undulating Portimao circuit in Portugal on June 7th.
