SF: Could Andrea Iannone Be at Your Next Track Day?

Graduating from the Moto2 Championship, which does not come across the pond for the US GP at Laguna Seca, Andrea Iannone is one of a few riders in MotoGP this year that have never seen the Corkscrew and the Californian circuit’s other ten turns.

Not wanting to be at a disadvantage come race day, the Ducati rider will take a page out of Stefan Bradl’s playbook, and participate in a track day at Mazda Raceway this week, ahead of the Americas GP in Austin, Texas.

With both Keigwins and the California Superbike School on the calendar for next week, it is not clear which day Iannone will be riding (we suspect it won’t take long for the word to get out though), but the Pramac racer will have a Ducati 1199 Panigale R at his disposal for the day.

Like Bradl, we expect that Iannone will embarrass a few amateur racers on their decked-out race bikes, while the Italian tinkers away on his stock machine and DOT tires.
