A weekend with a truly special flavor awaits the Mooney VR46 Racing Team in Doha where, as usual, the Qatar Grand Prix will take place this Sunday - the first race of the 2022 season and debut in MotoGP of the Tavullia team. In the heart of the desert, Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi will make their debut with the colors of Mooney and the VR46 at the Lusail International Circuit.

Marco is waiting at the starting blocks too, rookie in the premier class and first among the rookies in Indonesia, motivated to continue his apprenticeship in the new category and his growth path after an encouraging pre-season.
