2013-VM-Supersport-Rolfo-1

 

Det er 37 år siden at Giacomo Agostini oppnådde sin siste store suksess ved Nurburgring, der MV Agusta steg opp på pallen i verdenssammenheng.

 

I hendene på ParkinGo teamet, kjørtes MV Agusta F3 675 inn til en tredjeplass ved den vanskelige Donington banen i England, som er det 5 løpet i verdensmesterskapet i Supersport.

 

Føreren Roberto Rolfo var den som klarte bragden og startet som 16. mann ved startstreken. Han avanserte helt opp til tredje plass som han holdt relativt greit, helt til løpet var ferdig. Tid tider var han den raskeste på banen der han fikk vist sitt talent til fulle og ikke minst hva motorsykkelen er god for. Den andre føreren i teamet, Christian Iddon, har også kunne ha vist til lignende resultater men fordi han hadde en episode med en annen fører tidligere i løpet ble det ikke noe palleplass på han.

 

Henrykt og begeistret

Giovanni Castiglioni, adminstrerende direktør i MV Agusta, hadde følgende kommentar etter løpet:  “I am delighted and thrilled with this first podium result for the F3 675! It has been a great challenge to bring this important brand back on the race track. The amazing thing is that this podium was conquered on the same day as the Claudio Castiglioni Memorial organised by the Lombardia Moto Club Cagiva yesterday at our plant in Schiranna. I would like to dedicate this success to my father, the man from whom we inherited our great passion for racing. My gratitude goes to the Rovelli brothers and the members of the ParkinGo team for the amazing effort they are putting in to this project. There is still much work to be done and they have all our support!”

 

En meget fornøyd Roberto Rolfo

Roberto Rolfo erklærte: “I am truly pleased with this bike, it’s perfect, and the work done by the team, which was impeccable.  I’m really sorry I made mistakes during the qualifying on Saturday. If I had been able to start further towards the front perhaps I wouldn’t have had the chance to get to first place anyway, but I sure would have had an easier time of it during the race, perhaps even made it one step higher on the podium. I promised everyone a comeback yesterday, but even I didn’t expect this fantastic result! No doubt, its thanks in great part to perfect team work. Without them we wouldn’t have been able to get to this level in such a short amount of time.”
