MV Agusta and the ParkinGO Team have partnered and signed a three-year contract to compete in the World Supersport Championship.

The Italian manufacturer, which is producing positive sales numbers in the 600cc market, will debut the MV Agusta F4 675 triple in the 2013 World Supersport Championship. MVA didn’t announce who would pilot the 675, but Luca Scassa is likely the candidate.

The ParkinGO team, the 2011 World Supersport Champion (Yamaha, Luca Scassa) will develop the 675 to be competitive in the upcoming seasons, wanting to add to MV Agusta’s 37 world titles won by Giacomo Agostini.

The contract was signed Thursday, which was also Claudio Castiglioni’s 65th birthday. Speaking of the significant date for the president of MV Agusta, the company from Schiranna says “the date is not just a simple coincidence, but is a virtual continuation of the sporting passion that had always been an important part of his life.”

Giovanni Castiglioni (MV Agusta President) says: “It gives me great satisfaction to announce this agreement with Team ParkinGO. Personally speaking, for me it is a big and exciting challenge as I have inherited from my father the passion for racing. I am convinced that with the experience of engineer Massimo Bordi, who is involved in this project as well, we have all the right components needed to get important results.”

Giuliano Rovelli (ParkinGO President) added: “This morning my brother Paolo and I were talking about the big responsibility and at the same time the great satisfaction we feel in signing such an important agreement. Already from the first meetings there has been a good understanding with the management of the company. Our common aims in the project are important components to get the best out of this partnership.”
