Rolfo Visits Pedercini Kawasaki Workshop

2011 World Superbike

Following the announcement that Roberto Rolfo has joined Kawasaki Pedercini for next year’s Superbike World Championship, the 30-year-old Italian immediately wasted no time in paying a visit to the workshop of the Italian team, based in Mantova.

The 2011 season will see a return to World Superbike for Rolfo, who began the 2009 season with a Stiggy Motorsport Honda, but that experience only lasted two races before he was replaced because of the team’s budget problems.

Roberto Rolfo says: "I paid a visit to Lucio Pedercini’s racing workshop and decided to pose for a photo on the green machine."

"It was a great day, Lucio Pedercini and all his family were really kind to me and gave me a warm welcome. The team base is nice and the whole outfit is well organized."

During the day, Roberto got to know some of the Kawasaki Superbike team members he’ll be working with next year and he was impressed with their know-how and passion.

Roberto Rolfo says: "In the team there is a great desire to work and that’s a good start, with the right mentality to push forward when you really believe in a project. I’m continuing my training this week in order to get into the best possible shape before the championship starts."

"Hopefully the snow and the bad weather won’t prevent us from going testing before Xmas … that would be a really nice present!"
