Bimota & Alstare Form World Superbike Team
As part of the newly formed long-term partnership between the Bimota brand and Alstare is the creation of Team Bimota Alstare Racing, which will compete in the EVO class during the 2014 World Superbike Championship with the Bimota BB3.
The staff at Bimota has married its BMW engine with a new chassis built in the Bimota workshop. It will be Alstare’s job to develop the bike with full cooperation from the staff at Bimota.
The team has also confirmed its riders for 2014. Italian Ayrton Badovini will be joined by Briston Christian Iddon at Team Bimota Alstare Racing.
“The early part of this year is going to be a bit difficult because of our late start, but having said that, I’ve got such a good team backing me. I know we can do a nice job,” Badovini said.
“This is an amazing opportunity for me and I am very excited about the challenge ahead,” Iddon said. “Alstare is a famous team with a big history and I am sure that I am going to learn a lot from them.”
