NGM Mobile Forward Racing Team ready for the British Grand Prix
The NGM Mobile Forward Racing Team heads to the United Kingdom for the twelfth round of the championship that will take place at the Silverstone Circuit.
MotoGP rider Colin Edwards looks forward to continue working in the same direction that the team has in the last few races in order to be in the fight with the ARTs for best CRT. Teammate Claudio Corti will get back on his FTR – Kawasaki bike after the crash suffered at Brno last week after the collision with Hector Barbera.
Moto2 riders Simone Corsi and Mattia Pasini want to be work on starting in the front group at Silverstone and fight to improve the results achieved at Brno. Alex De Angelis is going back to basics in terms of the setup of his SpeedUp bike and hopes to be back in the Top10. Spanish teammate Ricky Cardús knows that this is only his second time at the British track and will focus the first sessions and getting familiarized.
“Obviously this is the last of the three back-to-backs and I would like to be in the fight for best CRT. We have gotten very close to Espargaro and his ART in the last we races so we just need to keep up the good work and stay in the fight.”
I am resting at home as the doctors advised me but I will be heading to Silverstone tomorrow, I will try to be at a 100% for the race, I am really looking forward to being at the track with the team and start working.”
“We are on our way to Silverstone next and we will try our best to be always in the front group. I have found a good feeling with the bike in the last few races and we start off with a good base. He hope to do well.”

“The Silverstone GP weekend is always a difficult one because of the ever changing weather conditions. It is almost guaranteed that one of the sessions will be in the rain. We will start off with a standard setup a hope that Silverstone will be a good track for us this weekend.”
“We get to Silverstone more motivated than ever to improve the results had at Brno. We have had a series of last few races in which we haven’t exactly been able to be among the fastest riders. We have some work ahead of us; we need to keep improving step by step. We are hoping to be in the fight with the fast guys this weekend.”
“Silverstone is the last of the three back-to-back races of the summer: I have to believe more in this bike, in my potential and I will probably do better. The track is not easy, I have been on that track for the first time only one time last year and I still need to get familiarized with it. I am very motivated to do this race and do well for me, the team and the sponsors.”
