WSBK 2012 in Russia
Gathered last weekend at the Russian National TV Center in Moscow, Paolo Flammini (Managing Director of Infront Motorsports) and Alexander Yakhnich (Managing Director of Yaknich Motorsport) announced that a partnership agreement had been concluded between the two companies.

The intention is clear: to host the World Superbike in Russia in 2012! "To this end, many negotiations are underway with a number of circuits for the FIM homologation application process.".
"Honored to have achieved this prestigious goal"Alexander Yakhnich does not forget to thank the Russian government for its support,"in particular to Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov. Motorcycle racing in Russia is preparing to host the World Superbike Championship and this will contribute to the growth of the sport in our country in the best possible way.".
"Russia is one of the most important countries in the world, with a rapidly growing economy. We believe that the World Superbike Championship is the most suitable way to help the motorcycle market in Russia, with a plan that foresees the growth of young Russian riders internationally in our four categories.", for his part declared Paolo Flammini.
