Tito Rabat, to miss the Malaysian GP
Because of the multiple contusions suffered by Tito Rabat on his right hand that haven’t allowed him to race in Japan and Australia, and the lack of healing of it, it is decided after deliberation by the Reale Avintia Racing Team, Tito Rabat himself and the Medical Team, to start the intense rehab in order to face the last Grand Prix of the season in Valencia and the following 2020 preseason test with competitive guarantees.
Eric Granado, Reale Avintia Racing Team rider in the MotoE World Cup and main rider to fight for the championship in 2020, was one of the possible replacement of Tito Rabat in Malaysian GP. The encouragement and the excitement of the Brazilian rider is that huge that he did a long journey of more than 40 hours in order to be ready in Malaysia in case he could ride.
By different circumstances it won’t be possible but the team hopes in the possibility to give Granado the chance to step in a MotoGP bike shortly.
The youth and the speed of the rider makes the Reale Avintia Racing Team see him as a future candidate inside the team itself and dreams to take him to the highest category in the following seasons.
All the members of the Reale Avintia Racing Team wish a quick recovery to Tito Rabat.
“I am very happy to continue with Avintia for another year. I quite liked the work we have done in MotoE and, although for some reasons we did not get the results, I am sure that next year we will have a great season. I also want to thank that they trusted me to come to Malaysia, I hope to have another opportunity shortly to work with the MotoGP team and grow as a pilot within the team for the next few years. ”
