The arrival of the new 1199 Panigale in the big leagues – it drove this year in Superstock with the Barni team in particular, but will not join the WSBK until next year – should have relaunched this successful duo Althea Ducati but , for lack of agreement, the two parties separated this fall (read).

"As everyone knows, the Althea Racing team is used to major challenges and can count on a structure that works in perfect harmony to achieve major objectives", underlines the transalpine manager..

"Our strength lies in our team and those who make it up: its members have worked together for many years in full confidence and remain the same. We believe that we have enough experience to face the challenge of the 2013 championship".

The are therefore warned, as well as Michel Fabrizio who will ride on a private RSV4 prepared by the Red Devils Roma team. Eleventh in the 2012 championship on the S1000RR of the BMW Italia team, Fabrizio is also eyeing the throne left vacant by Max Biaggi…
