Davide Giugliano Will Ride Althea Racing Ducati 1198 In FIM Superstock 1000cc Cup


Rome, 15th January 2011: Team Althea Racing is proud to communicate that it has found an agreement with Italian rider Davide Giugliano, 21 years old, who will participate in the Superstock 1000 category, alongside Lorenzo Baroni, with Althea Racing's Ducati 1198. Roman rider Davide has been a protagonist of recent series of the STK championship and all seems to auger well for a successful 2011 season now he is on board with the team from Civita Castellana.

Genesio Bevilacqua, General Manager of the team, commented, "I am very pleased that we have been able to make an agreement with Davide to allow him to ride in the 2011 Superstock. We all know that is a talented rider that, for various reasons, has not yet been able to show his true potential. I am certain that with our support and a fantastic bike like the Ducati 1198, Davide will show his true colours, encouraged further by the presence of a strong teammate, Lorenzo Baroni, who has the same objectives for the upcoming season. We give them both a warm welcome."

"I am really happy to be a part of Genesio Bevilacqua's Althea Racing Team", commented young Giugliano, who finished fifth in the STK category in 2010. "I finally have a fantastic bike in the Ducati 1198, with which I hope to be able to obtain the kind of results that have for some reason eluded me, despite my drive. In this squad I have found very willing and professional people who share my determination to reach important goals. I thank all of them and especially Genesio Bevilacqua who has given me the opportunity to join this important team so as to be able to fight against my rivals on a level playing field, which will hopefully lead to significant results."
