Triumph ParkinGO Race: Assen Day 2

Assen Day 2

Arie Vos will start from the pole position in round two of the Triumph ParkinGo European motorcycle racing series, held at the Assen circuit.

The Dutchman, who was a permanent road racer in World Supersport last year battled for the top position with Fabrizio Perotti. The Italian will start second alongside Torcolacci and Rovelli.

Tomorrow will apparently be a hard-fought road race, with Vos decided not to allow Perotti a second win after Valencia.

Arie Vos says: "I was surprised by the easy handling and stability of the Street Triple R, which enabled me to set a very fast and unexpected time. I will be racing at home and so my goal is to win, although it’s not going to be easy".

Vos has a long career as a professional motorcycle racer, as Enrico "Tarzan" Annoni as a footballer, who played for Como, Torino and Roma for many years in the Serie A and in 1999 was acquired by Scottish giants Celtic.

He has already won his race: being a motorcycling enthusiast he has has wealth of experience in motard and enduro, but has never raced on a track before.

Annoni loves challenges and so chose to make his debut at Assen, one of the most important motorcycling venues.

Enrico Annoni says: "I’m having a ball in this competition. Although it’s like a battle on the track, after the race the faster riders have always a good piece of advice to give. I’m very happy with the technical support we’re receving, even for a rookie like myself, the mechanics are very helpful when we have difficulties. I’m pretty far behind, but I hope to improve tomorrow".
