It’s with great honor that I announce that I’ll be racing with HotRace Tyres for this 2016 season. I have been trying/testing this tyres since the IBR Indoor Worlds 2015. As they have a unique type of rubber, their traction and feeling on the track is simply amazing, I’m very happy to make this change and I must thank Nicola Marrone for the trust and help he as been giving to me and for this awesome opportunity. Thank you.
