A life on two wheels? In Massimo Meneghin's case, "Menego" to everyone, even a few more, since he travels all over Europe behind the wheel of one of the trucks that move the materials the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini needs during race weekend.
On the racing scene for 24 years, Massimo began his adventure under the guidance of a historical crew chief, Rossano Brazzi, following Marcellino Lucchi’s Aprilia test team. This relationship with the manufacturer from Noale was also favoured by Massimo’s Venetian origins. About 21,000 kilometres a year, a full month of just truck travel, but the job does not end here for Menego. Once at the track, after unloading the material and setting up the garage, Massimo puts on his spectacle and takes care of managing the parts stock. Sometimes he turns into “Grumpy”, as his colleagues jokingly call him because of his painstaking attention to detail. It is a temporary transformation, since most of the time he does not hold back on jokes to break the tension even in the most delicate moments.
