TAKA CLAIMS ANOTHER TOP-10 AT MISANO
Takaaki Nakagami produced a consistent ride to claim a top-10 finish at the San Marino Grand Prix on Sunday. The LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider battled hard throughout as the weather held to ensure a dry race at Misano and he eventually took 10th position at the chequered flag in front of 25,000 fans at the Rimini venue.
Departing from 13th on the grid, Taka made a solid start to make up a place over the opening lap. He then got the better of Ducati duo Johann Zarco and Michele Pirro and moved into the top 10 on lap 18, maintaining his form over the closing laps to take a seventh top-10 of the season.
