Vittorio Iannuzzo: "I was close to signing with the team two years ago, now we've finally reached the deal. I'm sure I can score important results and I will work hard to get to grips with the bike as soon as possible. I'm going to be a factory rider yet again and this makes me really proud, so I would like to thank Giuliano Rovelli for giving me this opportunity. I haven't raced in Supersport for 5 years, my last season in the competition was in fact in the seat of a Suzuki, racing for team Alstare, where I scored great results. Now that I have more experience, I'm confident I can do even better".
Giuliano Rovelli: "After DiSalvo quit, we have received interesting proposals, but we chose Vittorio because we believe he possesses the talent to battle with the front runners right away and his riding style fits our machine's characteristics. I wish him the best of luck for his debut at Misano".
