Curitiba (Brazil) - May 3rd 2015
First race in brazilian Moto1000GP and first victory for Matthieu Lussiana
. Yet the weekend of 1st round, GP Petrobras of Curitiba did not look very well as Matthieu was still suffering from his broken rib and he was afraid to perhaps not be able to ride over pain.
First laps in free practice with the BMW S 1000RR and Michelin tires has requested big adjustment and Matt came only in 9th place.
As to sessions, Matthieu has understood better and better his bike and changed his riding style to take advantage.
Mission done with success because he has qualified in first line in grid and after a race where only Miguel Praia followed him as his shadow, he was able to offer victory to Alex Barros team.
His teammate who is none other than Sebastian Porto, ex Grand Prix rider, Vice World Champion 250cc in 2004 finished on third step of podium.
