The Casino of Venice on the spectacular Grand Canal hosted the CAME IodaRacing Project team presentation on Saturday with riders Danilo Petrucci and Simone Corsi.
The partnership between the Veneto based company CAME, a leader in automation systems for residential and industrial entrances and parking and access controls, prepares to face the most important motorbike championship in the world with riders Danilo Petrucci in MotoGP™ and Simone Corsi in Moto2™.
Petrucci will ride the new Iodaracing TR003, a trellis framed bike fully designed and built in the factory in Terni, while Corsi will again race the Moto2 class with the FTR, on which the roman rider finished the season in sixth position.
The next important event for the CAME IodaRacing Team will be the IRTA Official Test at Jerez from the 19th to the 25th of March, after which, bikes and spare parts will be sent to Qatari Losail circuit for the first race of the 2012 season.
Paolo Menuzzo, Chairman of CAMEGROUP SpA:
"The idea of sponsoring the team was exciting for the group because we have always been happy to be part of a fully Italian project-as it was when I first developed the first automation systems which became the basis of a new business. I am therefore proud to tie our name to a sport which shares the values of technology, innovation and team work as our company does."
Giampiero Sacchi, Managing Director of IODARACING PROJECT Srl:
"Only a year and a half after its foundation, Iodaracing finds itself part of all the three classes in the World Championship, with two different projects fully built at home. We now face this challenge bearing in mind the technical difficulties we will meet, but extremely proud of our group headed by Giovanni Sandi, Paolo Biasio and Roberto Papetti. I am sure they will develop our bikes to an outstanding technological level."
Danilo Petrucci, MotoGP:
"I am more than satisfied for the opportunity to make such a debut in MotoGP at 21, although it’s a great commitment having to do so with a brand new bike, though I know I can rely on my team as they have demonstrated to be outstanding since the very first tests. We aim to be within the first group in the CRT, and we are all doing our very best to obtain good results in a short time."
Simone Corsi, Moto2:
"This is my second year on this team, and I really feel there is a good understanding both with my technicians and with my FTR. This is a positive sign, and I’m sure I can be part of the group fighting for the world title this year."
