Triumph 675 R race series joins WSBK
One month after the agreement between Infront Motor Sports and ParkinGO, Oasi Handling Group, details are now being announced about one of the most fascinating Trophies on the international bike racing scene, which will allow 24 riders to challenge each other at the leading European circuits alongside the top racers of the SBK World Championship.
The ParkinGO Series has come about with the official support of the historic English manufacturer Triumph, which has also been successfully involved in the Supersport Word Championship. The Series can also count on the support of the "King of Slide", Garry McCoy, who made history this year by scoring the first World Championship podium for Triumph in 40 years. The Australian, who was the official rider of BE1 Racing in the 2009 World Supersport Championship, will support and lend his image to the ParkinGO European Series with his technique and experience.
Garry McCoy Speaks…
"I think the ParkinGO Series is a brilliant idea and gives the opportunity to anybody that loves Motorsport to be part of it. I have heard a lot of people saying how much they would like to be us, well now they have the chance to be themselves in the same involvement of the top riders and have fun at the same time with the European Championship."
