Althea Racing ends its World Superbike season
Monday 31 August 2020
Althea Racing announces its decision to terminate with immediate effect the partnership with MIE Honda Racing and to end in advance its participation in the 2020 World Superbike Championship.
Althea is sorry to note that the collaboration with MIE Racing, which started under the best auspices in the 2019-2020 sports season, did not produce sporting and image results suitable with the profile and prestige that have always distinguished the Althea Racing commitment, having come to miss the technical and contractual basis.
Althea Racing will continue to operate in the CIV Championship (Campionato Italiano Velocità) and will shortly communicate its international programs.
Genesio Bevilacqua, Althea Racing Team Principal “Despite having given the utmost commitment regardless the criticalities of the period, we take note of the irremediable technical and contractual incompatibilities. Althea Racing, in respect of its partners, sponsors and the same staff, cannot ignore the quality standards that have always distinguished its activity, and thanks to which have been achieved sporting and image results that have placed the Team at the top of international motorsport.
“For Althea and myself, always engaged in enhancing the staff and the young riders lined up on the track, it is unthinkable to continue when missing the aforementioned conditions.
For this reason, despite the passion that has always made our sporting heart beat, we must stop a project that we reckon has no future. I wish Midori Moriwaki good luck for the sporting and professional future.”
