The 19-year-old Odessan achieved fourth place at the  Misano Circuit.

On July 29th, the Ukrainian motorcycle racer Nick Kalinin finished fourth in the race of the Italian Championship on the Misano circuit. Less than few tenths separated the champion of Ukraine from the coveted third place. Almost 50 pilots from all over the world were declared to take part at this stage: Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, France, Russia, Spain and Ukraine. Amongst the rivals of the 19-year-old was the winner of the World Championship round in Brno - Gallang Hendra from Indonesia, and the rider who was triumphant at his home stage on the same Misano circuit - Manuel Bastianelli. The Odessan struggled into the last corner to win second position and so became the only non-Italian motorcycle racer in the top-12 of the final race result.

Nick Kalinin: "This is my first experience participating in the Italian championship and I am pleased with the result, although I'm sorry that I did not reach the podium. Yesterday I made an unfortunate fall and the team worked so that today my motorcycle was ready to the maximum. It turned out well, but I rode a little slower than in general on this weekend, on the one hand - and the already hot weather intensified, on the other - it was necessary to be careful not to make a mistake in a very tough fight. After the start, there was a red flag of the race because of the massive crash, so when we restarted, my goal was to go to the leading group to the last lap and try to take the podium at the end. It's less than half of a second away from the podium, but I showed a good fight and added confidence in working with the motorcycle to return to the World Championship in Portugal in September.

Thanks to all motorsport fans that have been following me this weekend and thanks to ALL of my team both on the track and at home in Ukraine for the excellent work! "

The next race with the participation of Nick Kalinin will be held on August 22th in Kiev on the track "Chaika".

Nick Kalinin : "I am very happy with the first day. I immediately felt very confident on the bike and already during training I was 4th. In the first qualification I achieved the third result. Tomorrow I'm waiting for the second qualification and already on the combined results will be determined from what position I start in the race. My goal - to work with the motorcycle, with the team and bring a good result. Of course, I want a podium to say thank you everyone who supports me and to my team. So I'll work on it! "

Kalinin will take the first experience in the competition of the Italian championship.
The only representative of Ukraine in the world road racing motorcycle championship, Nick Kalinin, gains a wild card participation in the race of the Italian Championship in Misano on July 28-29th. For him, it will be the first experience in the competition of the Italian championship.

It is worth noting that the Italian championship is considered one of the most prestigious in the world. Together with the 19-year-old Odessan, other leaders of the World Supersport 300 - for example, Gallang Hendra, who won in Brno - will fight on the track on this weekend.

Nick Kalinin: "I am very happy that I have a chance to perform in the Italian championship. The level of competition here is very close to the world stage, which is good training during the summer break. My last World Supersport 300 race was also in Misano, so for now the memories of riding on this track are fresh - this is a good chance to fight for the podium.

I want to say a big thank you to my team "GP Project" and Devin Battley, who did everything possible get to these competitions. At the beginning of the season, I could not imagine that I would have such chance. Follow me with online translation on the Internet. We will fight to the end!"

Link for the online broadcasting of the two races of the italian championship on Saturday and Sunday will be posted on the official page of Nick Kalinin on Facebook.
