ParkinGO Stars rev for WSBK Valencia

Inaugural Race

Valencia will be the first round of 2010 to feature all World Superbike (WSBK) races types, as the four traditional classes are joined by a new innovation, the ParkinGO Stars series, running identically prepared Triumph Street Triple R machines. High handlebars and high speeds, the new class is eagerly anticipated.

The Street Triple 675 R racebikes will be supplied by the organization before the races with the complete racing kit. The championship will be held at seven rounds of the Superbike World Championship on the following dates: 11/04/2010 Valencia (Spain); 25/04/2010 Assen (Holland); 09/05/2010 Monza (Italy); 27/06/2010 Misano (Italy); 11/07/2010 Brno (Czech Republic); 01/08/2010 Donington (England); 05/09/2010 Nurburgring (Germany)

The race weekend program is based on two official sessions, one on Friday and another on Saturday, and the race on Sunday at 14.30, before the second race of the Superbike World Championship.

The entry fee includes the bike, a test day, tires for both races and test day plus a set of rain tires. The organization will be in charge of the transport of the bikes, technical structure and hospitality at the different circuits.

Inside the paddock there will be a Village with hospitality and participants will have available, for every two riders, a box/garage (4×4 meters) with all the necessary technical equipment.

Each rider will be able to bring a mechanic of his own or eventually ask for technical assistance directly from the organizer at the moment of the inscription.

The racebikes will be managed throughout the season by the organization, which will be in charge of servicing them between circuits/races, where specialized personnel will be present for any technical problems, suspension adjustments and spare parts.

The entry fee also includes 1 rider pass + 3 companion-passes to live all the excitement of the Superbike World Championship.

The winner of the ParkinGO Series will have the possibility to participate as a wild card in the last race of the Supersport World Championship at Magny-Cours.

The ParkinGO Series is a championship where riders from all countries and age with a UEM license can participate, and the inscriptions are limited to 6 riders per country. The entry fee into the ParkinGO Series is $40k USD.
