ParkinGO heads to Round 2 Assen

Race Report

The opening round of the Triumph ParkinGO European Trophy was held last weekend at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, with the riders taking part in the challenge for the first time on their Street Triple Rs.

As expected, Fabrizio Perotti took the top slot on the podium, but it was not easy for the Italian, with BE1 Racing team owner Giuliano Rovelli and Alessandro Torcolacci finishing second and third respectively.

Rovelli, who started from the last row because he was ‘busy’ celebrating Chaz Davies’s podium in the Supersport race, caught the top three runners after just one lap. Rovelli and Torcolacci then engaged in a duel which allowed Perotti to build up a small gap.

While the two were overtaking each other for the second place, Salom caught up but later on was penalised with a ride through for a jump start. Torcolacci then passed Rovelli to take second place also as a result of Salom’s penalty.

Matteo Marzotto finished fourth after passing Supersport TT winner Michael Dunlop and Samuela De Nardi in the final sprint.

Next up is round two, which will be held at Assen in one week’s time, where Dutch Supersport champion Arie Vos and former Torino and AS Roma professional footballer ‘Tarzan’ Annoni will also join in.
