World Superbikes head to Russia in 2012

Posted:

Four months after the press conference held in Moscow in which Paolo Flammini, CEO of Infront Motor Sports and Alexander Yakhnich, CEO of YMS Promotion Ltd announced a partnership agreement, a contract has now been signed in Rome between the two companies on Wednesday making YMS Promotion Ltd the official organizer of the Russian Round of the FIM Superbike World Championship.

The accord, which will have a ten-year duration, stipulates that next year the FIM Superbike and Supersport World Championships will make their first appearance in Russia at the Moscow Raceway circuit on the outskirts of Moscow.

The date scheduled for the event is 26 August 2012.

Paolo Flammini said: "In the last few months we have been working very closely with Alexander Yakhnich and his team and we have managed to define all the details in preparation for the arrival in Russia of the championship in 2012.

"To hold a race in Moscow, in the very first year, was our declared intention and we are therefore extremely satisfied with the choice of Moscow Raceway, a truly state-of-the-art circuit that is in an advanced phase of construction, and which will be completed in a few months time.

"World Superbike will be the first championship to arrive in Russia, a demonstration of Infront Motor Sports' commitment to opening up important new markets for motor sport," Flammini concluded.

Alexander Yakhnich added: "We are delighted to be able to officially represent such a prestigious championship as Superbike in Russia.

"We know that months of hard work lie ahead of us for the organization of the event but we are certain that in August everything will be ready to give a worthy welcome to the Superbike and Supersport Championships and their protagonists.

"The commitment of my group for the development of motorcycle sport in Russia will also be shown by the debut of the Yakhnich Motorsport team in the 2012 FIM Supersport World Championship with Russian rider Vladimir Leonov and another rider still to be decided".
