MAX BIAGGI TO RACE AGAIN AT SEPANG
IN THE MALAYSIAN ROUND OF WSBK THE SIX-TIME WORLD CHAMPION WILL BE ASTRIDE THE APRILIA RSV4 ONCE AGAIN
Noale, 16 July 2015 - There will be a sequel to Max Biaggi's return to World SBK as a wild card at Misano on 21 June.
Biaggi will be racing again astride the Aprilia RSV4 RF on 2 August for the next Malaysian round of World SBK on the Sepang circuit. This is episode two after the interest and enthusiasm that the Misano race stirred up in the fans.
Max, six-time World Champion (four times in 250 and twice in Superbike), five of which with Aprilia, will race once again thanks to the second wild card of the season, taking with him the team that accompanied him to Misano.
Biaggi astonished everyone there with his performance on the Italian track. Returning almost three years after his retirement, Max - at 44 years of age and driven by pure passion and the desire to get back into the game - stayed in the lead for all the Friday practice sessions. The second row on the starting grid and the two races that he finished in sixth place (the second one less than a second behind the winner) proved that his class is intact and he is physically fit.
Max Biaggi is the only Italian rider ever to have been crowned World SBK Champion, the first time in 2010 and then the brace in his last season of racing, in 2012. Both of the championship wreaths were earned astride the Aprilia RSV4, a bike that Max developed, having ridden it since it first appeared in 2009, and the true dominator in the category with seven world titles (three Rider and four Manufacturer) won from 2010 to 2014.
