Checa---Sunday.jpg
Carlos Checa: "What a great result today! In the first race, I didn’t make a great start, losing some ground through the first corners. Max was strong at the start and it wasn’t easy to pass him but once in front, I was able to find good rhythm and build a small advantage. I’m extremely satisfied also because the tire began to slide in the final laps and it was very hot today." Race 1 Misano 2011
