Mattia Pasini will make his second Moto2 wild-card appearance of the season during this weekend's Misano round.

The former 125 and 250cc race winner will again ride a Gresini-run Kalex, with which he finished 18th in the earlier Italian round at Mugello.

Pasini recently took part in three testing sessions at Misano and is targeting the top ten on Sunday.

"I'm very happy to come back here in Misano: racing at home, on a track where in the past I have collected great satisfaction, it's always a great feeling," Pasini said.

"We tried to prepare for this event in the best possible way, carrying out some tests to regain confidence with the bike and to reduce the gap with the other riders, who can count on the experience of a whole racing season behind them.

"Realistically we can try to fight for the top ten, but regardless of the result I would like to complete a productive weekend, especially to put some basis for the future".
