Everything that has a beginning must have an end. Of course, speaking of the association between MV Agusta and Yakhnich it was expected that it would go a little ‘more than six months and not more than cohabitation. Mainly, the adventure of the Russian tycoon Alexander Yakhnich was born to satisfy the “desire of motorsport” of his beautiful wife, Nadia, and for the economic good of his country.Task that gave some profit, if we think of the Supersport world-championship in 2013 won by Sam Lowes and the arrival of SBK in Russia, with the Moscow’s round (but for 2014 is blown formally for security reasons …). Then in 2014 the association with MV Agusta, even this seemingly blessed by luck, one of the pilots MV Agusta Racing Team – Yakhnich Motorsport, Cluzel, won at Phillip Island and climbed on the podium many times, stationed in 2nd place in the championship. But apparently there was no basis (economical?) for a long-time relationship, and in fact …
MV Agusta is not frightened by the Russians after the sudden divorce of Yaknich Motorsport, the team that flanked the house of Schiranna in the management of the team that is participating in the World Superbike and Supersport, and indeed strengthens its commitment to championships racing cars derived from the production series.
Here’s the official press release MV Agusta
Giovanni Castiglioni, Chairman and President of MV Agusta, and Alexander Yakhnich, Chairman of Yakhnich Motorsport, have signed an agreement which stipulates that MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. will take over all operations of the team currently competing in the World Supersport and Superbike Championships.
“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 with preparing for the new 2015 rules” commented Giovanni Castiglioni “We plan to significantly increase our commitment and investment in racing in order to achieve our very ambitious goals next season.”
Starting from the next round of the Championship, which will be held in Misano this coming weekend (June 20th – 22nd), MV Agusta will manage all sporting activities directly through its Reparto Corse.
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 Jules 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.
French rider Cluzel will be joined in Misano by the Wild Card rider, Massimo Roccoli, winner of the two most recent races in the Italian Motorcycle Championship riding an MV Agusta F3.
