Paco Castagna Racing Press Release
April 28th, 2021
Here we are for the first Press Release regarding the 2021 season that finally started a couple weeks ago!
Finally Paco was able to hit the track for some National Team Training in Terenzano in the month of March and the start of April where he could test his equipment before the first meetings of the year. 3 practice sessions that were just great to get the confidence back after a 6 months stop.
The season then really started in Grindsted where the Italian rider raced in the Danish Metal Speedway League for the recently promoted Nordysk Elite Speedway of Brovst. He scored 7 points in the loss away in Grinsted. First experience for Castagna in the top Danish League where he scored good points and got the nerves of the first meeting of the year out of the way.
Then he moved to Italy for the weekend where he raced in the first two meetings of the Italian Championship in Terenzano where he won Round 1 and got a second place in Round 2, ending the weekend on top of the leaderboard level with Covatti at 47pts.
He said: " I'm very pleased with how the season started off! I've got to be honest, there was a lot of tension before the first race as I started off with a very hard meeting, but as soon as we were at the tapes it was all normal. I think I did well in my first ever meeting in the League. Then in Terenzano was great, a good win and a second place, all throughout hard racing on both days where I had to show character all the way to the end to get on the podium. I can't wait for the next round on May the 9th. It will be interesting to see if I will be able to race for Brovst next week, meanwhile preparation is always going strong"
Wish you a great week and weekend!
