MV AGUSTA TAKES OVER SUPERBIKE AND SUPERSPORT TEAM

MV Agusta has taken over all operations of the team currently competing in the World Supersport and Superbike championships.

Giovanni Castiglioni, chairman and president of MV Agusta, and Alexander Yakhnich, chairman of Yakhnich Motorsport, signed the agreement.

“We have reached some very important milestones with the F3 in the World Supersport Championship and we are continuing to invest in the development of the F4 Superbike in prepartion for the new 2015 rules,” commented Castiglioni “We plan significantly to increase our commitment and investment in racing to achieve our ambitious goals next season.”

The racing deal came into effect in time for the weekend’s Misano round of WSB and World Supersport Championship, in which MV triumphed once again in the Supersport: in fact, at Misano MV Agusta Reparto Corse team rider Jules Cluzel took his third pole and second win of the season.

MV Agusta’s increased commitment to racing is also underscored by the agreements they have reached with their riders. The Italian company has renewed the contracts with Claudio Corti and Cluzel who will be back on the bikes from Varese in the 2015 season, whereas they have released Russian rider Vladimir Leonov from his current contract.
