MV Agusta Reparto Corse decided to double its line-up in the Supersport class and signed with the Italian rider Alessandro Zaccone for the 2017 racing season.
The very young Italian rider will be lined up in the FIM Europe Supersport Cup 2017: a class inside the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship which will be raced concurrently with the WorldSSP class but only for the European round of the Championship. The 17-years old talent will race alongside Patrick “PJ” Jacobsen: the other MV Agusta Reparto Corse rider attending the WorldSSP class.
Alessandro Zaccone: “ I’m very happy for this opportunity that Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse gave to me. MV Agusta is a historical brand and becoming part of this team it really means a lot to me. I have already had a first contact with the F3 in the last test in Jerez and I immediately found a good feeling with the bike and the team. I really look forward to get back on track for the next test”.
Zaccone was born in Rimini in 1999. When he was just 4-years old he started his early career riding a minibike. Over the years, the young rider has joined several trophies and national championships, attracting the interest of some major teams, until he joined the FIM Europe Supersport Cup in 2016.
