The season ahead:
For 2014 Moto Rapido Racing have been appointed the technical partner for Millsport racing as they step up to the Superbike class for the first time with rider Jakub Smrz.
Our development of the 1199 Panigale R in the superbike class progressed well in 2013 with Italian Champion Matteo Baiocco scoring well and qualifying into the final stages in the final two rounds. We were very keen to continue our work with the Panigale so after working with Millsport last year in Superstock 1000, the partnership was the ideal option for us to be able to focus on the technical aspects of the bike to give Millsport something special.
The team structure is now a partnership of Moto Rapido and Millsport. We are really happy to work with Millsport as the title partner for the season and we are pleased to have our motorcycle and new larger team on the grid again.
We have already had some very positive tests with Jakub and the team has worked really well together.
Now we are preparing the 1199RS for the first round.
In addition to Superbike, we are supporting Jon Railton (No40) in the Ducati Cup this season on the Panigale 899. Jon, along with this title sponsor Boast Plumbing, will be operating from our pits and will have our team on hand to provide technical support.
Thanks for the continued support.
Team Moto Rapido.
