The Ducati Althea Racing, who competed in the World SBK with Carlos Checa in Superbike, has announced that they have signed Italian rider Davide Giugliano. The 21-years-old motorcycle racer will contest World Superstock 1000, alongside teammate Lorenzo Baroni, with Althea Racing’s Ducati 1198.
Davide, a Roman rider, has been a protagonist in the STK motorcycle racing championship and seems very eager for a successful 2011 season now that he is on-board with the Ducati Team from Civita Castellana.
Genesio Bevilacqua (GM Ducati Althea Racing) says: "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."
Davide Giugliano (Ducati 1198) says: "I am really happy to be a part of Genesio Bevilacqua’s Althea Racing Team", explains the young rider, 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."
