Mossey looking for podium finishes at Assen

This weekend sees the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team make their annual overseas visit to Assen, Holland with the Dutch circuit hosting the penultimate round of the 2016 MCE British Superbike Championship and Luke Mossey is intent on securing more podium finishes as he looks to get his Showdown campaign back on track.
The recently turned 24-year old rates the 2.82-mile Circuit van Drenthe, or ‘Cathedral of motorcycling’, as it is also known, as one of his favourite circuits and with the race results not going his way at Donington Park two weeks ago, he’s eager to firmly challenge for the rostrum places this time around.
Mossey finished third in the second race twelve months ago, whilst he also enjoyed success in the Supersport class, taking third in 2014 and fourth the year before. With his liking for the historic Dutch circuit clear to see, the Cambridge resident has a great chance of picking up more silverware and elevating himself further up the Championship table, where he currently sits in sixth overall.
In what started off in promising fashion, with one of his best qualifying performances of the season, Donington Park didn’t go to plan either for Mossey’s team-mate Filip Backlund with the Swedish rider crashing out of both races at the Leicestershire venue, fortunately without injury. With only two rounds remaining, the 25-year old is desperate to end his season on a high note and will be hoping for points scoring finishes in both Assen encounters.
There are also two races on the schedule for the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship with team members Ricky Stevens/Ryan Charlwood currently leading the standings by 49 points from nearest rivals Ben Holland/Lee Watson. However, with double points on offer at the final round at Brands Hatch next month, the LCR Kawasaki-mounted duo know there is still plenty of work to do if they’re to retain the number one plate and will be pushing hard for the race victories.

Eddi la Marra torna alle corse con il Barni Racing Team

È finalmente ufficiale: Eddi la Marra torna a correre e lo farà in sella alla Ducati del Barni Racing Team.
Un evento così straordinario non poteva che essere già trapelato ufficiosamente e propagatosi immediatamente sul web, ma oggi siamo lieti di confermare ufficialmente questa fantastica notizia.
Per Eddi si conclude un incubo iniziato il 27 agosto del 2013 a Misano a seguito di un brutto incidente avvenuto durante un test Superbike e che finalmente ha trovato un epilogo positivo dopo tre lunghissimi anni.
Come tutti i tifosi e gli addetti del settore Eddi non ha mai smesso di crederci, allenandosi costantemente e sottoponendosi a continue visite mediche che hanno stabilito, pochi giorni fa e in modo definitivo, che il talentuoso pilota laziale può finalmente tornare a fare quello che più amava: correre in moto.

Saranno due le competizioni che vedranno Eddi tornare alle corse. La prima il prossimo weekend (1 e 2 ottobre) al Mugello in occasione della Coppa Italia, mentre la settimana successiva (7 e 8 ottobre) lo vedremo impegnato come wild card nell’ultima tappa del Campionato Italiano Superbike che si disputerà sempre sullo straordinario circuito toscano.

#SometimesComeBack è l’hashtag ideato con Alessia Polita che identificherà sui social il suo ritorno alle competizioni e che rappresenta una storia fatta di voglia di vivere e di passione per lo sport. Un messaggio importante e profondo che Eddi vuole lasciare a tutti i giovani: non arrendersi mai e lottare sempre e comunque in quello in cui si crede!

Bravo Eddi… e bentornato a bordo!

Mossey’s Showdown hopes dashed at Donington

The 2016 MCE British Superbike Championship hopes of Luke Mossey and the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team took a major downturn at Donington Park at the weekend with the Cambridge rider only picking up eight points from the two races in what was the first part of the three-round Showdown.
Having been strong throughout free practice, Luke qualified in a strong fourth place for Sunday’s opening 20-lap race but a sluggish start saw him drop back to ninth at the completion of the first lap although he moved up to eighth a lap later. However, having opted to run the harder SC1 rear tyre, the 23-year old was losing ground to the front runners but it was with an issue with his front brakes that caused him to run off track at Goddards at the end of the third lap and subsequently retire.
It meant he had to start the second race later in the day from the much lower position of tenth and having slipped back to eleventh on the opening lap, he regrouped to haul his way inside the top ten by half race distance. By that time though, the front group of riders had broken away and although he salvaged eighth place at the chequered flag, he lost considerable ground to his Showdown rivals with just five races now remaining.
Meanwhile, team-mate Filip Backlund looked like he was going to have one of his strongest weekends of the year so far as he ran inside the top twenty throughout free practice and qualifying. The opening race saw the Swede more than hopeful of some points once more but just moments after Mossey’s race came to an early end, so too did Filip’s with a crash at the Old Hairpin. His weekend then went from bad to worse as he crashed out of the second race at Coppice on the opening lap.
It was left to the sidecar crew of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood to salvage the weekend for the team in the three Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship and the duo duly extended their Championship lead. An excellent win in Saturday’s race was followed up by two close seconds in Sunday’s two encounters and they now head to the penultimate round with a healthy 49-point advantage over second placed Ben Holland/Lee Watson.

Alemania le hace entrega de dos éxitos y un tercer lugar al Accossato Racing

Dominio de los equipos patrocinados por Accossato Racing en el  circuito de Lausitzring, en los campos de batalla de Superbike, Superstock y Superstock 1000.

En el mundial Superbike, muy buena prestación de Xavi Fores que, a pesar de unos 45 minutos de retraso causados por la lluvia, consigue conquistar un increíble tercer lugar en gara 2.

En Supersport, parece que no haya nacido aún un contendiente que pueda parar el dominio indisputable del equipo Puccetti Racing team: Kenan Sofuoglu gana su enésima competición y ya parece hypotecar la victoria del mundial.

Éxito para Leandro Mercado también, que gana el mojado Gran Premio de Alemania adelantando a todos sus retadores y actuando su personal “reconquista” de la lidership del mundial.

¡Nos veremos a Francia!

Germany grants two victories and a third place to Accossato Racing

Lausitzring circuit turns into a strength show for teams sponsored by Accossato in Superbike, Supersport and Superstock 1000 categories.

In Superbike World Championship, Xavi Fores closes in an incredible third place in gara 2, despite a 45 minute-delay caused by the rain falling soon before the challenge got started.

So far, no obstacle has been detected yet able to stop Puccetti Racing Team’s domain onto the Supersport category: Kenan Sofuoglu wins his umpteenth competition, paving his way towards World Championship conquest.

Good job for Leandro Mercato as well: despite the rain, he manages to  put his hands onto German Grand Prix: his great advantage onto all of his challengers, brings him back to the top of World Championship.

See you in France!
