Round 1: 17-18 April – Mugello
April 17-18 was the first race weekend for the CherryBox24 Racing Team that competed with the brand new BMW M1000 RR. The Team, after Sunday’s Race 2 has made a quantum leap on the chassis-electronics set-up and is now very confident. The rider Arton Badovini #86 did his best for the overall conditions. In fact, after the qualifying session and the problems encountered in Race 1, he found his way back to the top of the charts, finishing tenth on the first day and ninth on the second. The positions reached in the two races have allowed to gain 13 total points in the overall championship standings.
For the next round on May 15-16, which will be held at the Misano Adriatico circuit, the goal of the riders will be to focus on the development of the bike in order to be more competitive and conquer the top positions.
Round 2: 15-16 May – Misano
The second round of the CIV has also come to an end and this time there were two sixth places.
This stage was particularly difficult for the Guandalini team, as the new electronics adopted caused a number of problems.
But one can already see Imola in the distance, in fact Mirco Guandalini states:
«I see the future already from the next race in Misano with a lot of positivity; we have found the right way. Unfortunately in race 1 due to electronic problems we were penalized, in race 2 we finally found the right setting. Finally we found the right setting collecting lap times from the first positions. We will definitely be ready for the next round at Misano and be in the top positions. I take this opportunity to thank our sponsors who support us».
We look forward to seeing you at Imola!
Round 3: 3-4 July – Imola
We finished Round 3 of the CIV at Imola with a sixth place in Race 1 and a fourth place in Race 2.
After a great start in Race 1 our Ayrton Badovini #86 was closed by other riders and had to brake hard losing a lot of positions, the race was uphill and we end with a sixth place.
with a sixth place.
Different story for Race 2, again a great start allows us to stay close to the top positions throughout the race, we close with a fourth place just 6 seconds from the first position, this is the last data that makes us understand that we are working in the right direction and gives us hope for the future.
