ROBERTO ROLFO REPLACES MATTIA PASINI FROM THE GRAND PRIX OF JAPAN

Speed Master announces the replacement of Mattia Pasini, the team's rider in the MotoGP category, starting from the Grand Prix of Japan.

For the final part of the 2012 World Championship, in the last four races of the season, the CRT machine of the team will be given to Roberto Rolfo, who took part in the top class in 2005 and stepped regularly on the podium in the 250cc.
Rolfo is back on a motorbike for the last rounds of the Championship, with a new challenge, ready to get to know the ART bike and to prove his determination.

Roberto Rolfo #84
"I'm really happy there was the chance to reach this agreement with Speed Master Team, as I'll be taking part in the last four races of the season in the circuits of Motegi, Sepang, Phillip Island and, eventually, Valencia. It'll be awesome to be back on top of a bike with such horsepower and to do it on the tracks that are among my favourite ones, where you really have a good time. Thanks to the Team for giving me this opportunity, I'd like to take advantage of it at its best to prove that the desire to compete is high, as well as the intention to achieve good results."
