MV Agusta are back in international racing and will be running next season in the World Supersport series.
The famous Italian brand will be back in the international scene in 2013 on their F3 three cylinder 673 machine with support from Parkin Go and will field Luca Scassa next season.
The deal between MV Agusta and Parkin Go is a three year commitment and depending on new regulations for 2014 and success in the 2013 season, there is potential that we will see the project move up from the Supersport series into World Superbikes.
The decision to hire Scassa was an obvious choice for MV Agusta after he raced and won in the FIM Superstock Cup and the AMA Superbike Championship, as well as in CIV Superbike where he won the Italian title.
Current regulations mean that with their F4 machine they wouldnt be able to race in the World Superbike series, but due to the commercial success of F3, however, this allows the MV Agusta to obtain the approval of three-cylinder Supersport machine much like the Triamph 675.
