The #CustomExperience at the Circuito del Mugello, reaching a new record: 164,000 sold tickets for the show of the Italian GP, about +12,000 comparing with 2016 data.
The atmosphere at the Gran Premio del Mugello is always amazing and full of energy; there are also some people who define it as the best championship of this season and, for sure, it’s the most representative and crode for Lucio Cecchinello’s Italian team.
This year the atmosphere was different: the whole Paddock remembered and honoured the recent passing of the champion Nicky Hayden. As a sign of respect and in memory of Nicky, the motorcycles on the track had the sticker #69 and, before the race, the whole circuit dedicated 69 seconds of silence to the big champion, a friend and a point of reference for many riders and sportsmen.
An exciting moment that Custom lived firsthand.
In fact, the Custom staff, was at the Circuito del Mugello for the first Italian race of the 2017 MotoGP™ championship with LCR Honda Team and Cal Crutchlow. Among the guests ready to live the Paddock and the energy of the race, there were many partners, dealers and journalists.
Furthermore, starting from this weekend, Custom & Clinica Mobile started to talk about #RidersFairPlay...stay tuned for further details!
Results of the Oakley Gran Premio d’Italia
If the race at the French circuit of Le Mans shooked the classification of the championship, with Maverick Vinales at the first place with 85 points, this great weekend at the Mugello did the same: the victory of Andrea Dovizioso makes him reach the second place, making Rossi and Marquez fall to the third and the fourth place, and Dani Pedrosa to the fifth.
Our British rider Cal Crutchlow with the LCR Honda Team RC213V started well this year, collecting good places (third place at the GP of Argentina; fourth page at the GP of the Americas and fifth place at the French GP), but this last unlucky fall, only a few curves before the end of the race, drags him at the tenth place of the classification.

Race – June 4th, 2017
#35 Cal Crutchlow - (DNF) Unlucky end of race for Cal Crutchlow: Crutchlow looked set to come home in 11th place before a wild passing move from Pedrosa saw the Spaniard take out both riders with the chequered flag in sight.
"These things happen in racing. Dani and I we were both suffering this weekend on the Hondas, he was clearly frustrated with the position he was in. But at the end the result was that we crashed and that’s it. He came from a long way back, I didn’t hear him but suddenly I saw him and then was on top of him! It was a shame as I was happy enough in the race today, I felt quite good and never pushed over the limit. I was making sure I was going to finish the race and managing the situation with the front tyre. For us Barcelona won’t be an easy circuit, after the tests we made there last week, but we’ll do our best, as usual”.
