Teenage Italian Davide Pizzoli will join Alex Baldolini in an expanded two rider Race Department ATK#25 squad in 2017. The Italian duo will line up on a full grid of World Supersport rivals aboard an MV Agusta F3 675 - running numbers 7 and 25 respectively.
Pizzoli makes his World Supersport debut following successes in the Moto3 FIM CEV Repsol International Championship and several wildcard appearances in the World Championship.
Davide Pizzoli #7: “ I’m very happy to become part of Race Department ATK#25. I hope to adapt quickly to the new bike and the new team since. I can't wait to take part in World Supersport and I will do my best every race weekend to gain experience, score points and I will try to reach the leading positions as quickly as I can. There will be many new circuits but I believe in the team and Alex and am ready for the challenge."
Alex Baldolini #25: This will be the third season with my team and we have a really nice project for 2017. I’m very glad to have young Italian talent Davide Pizzoli in our box. Since 2002 I’ve been racing at world championship level and I think The team and I will be able to help Davide to adapt to the MV fast. I’m very confident for the new season - this year I’ve been really competitive but unfortunately the injury on the scaphoid took me out of action in the last two European rounds. I went to Qatar without knowing whether I would race but I could and even though I had a lot of pain in my hand I was fast in every practice and I also lead the race for one lap. Testing begins shortly after new year and then we head off in early February to Australia.
