Italian newcomer Vittorio Iannuzzo says he feels like a teenager again as he prepares for his first season in the MCE British Superbike championship.

The Tsingtao MV Agusta rider has enjoyed some positive pre-season testing at Brands Hatch ahead of his rookie season in BSB and feels the team made good steps forward despite the limited running time due to the cold temperatures at the Indy circuit.

"I am quite happy about the test at Brands Hatch because although I know the track I have never raced the Indy circuit," the former World Superbike rider told Britishsuperbike.com. "We did not do as many laps as we would have liked over the three days as it was colder at the weekend, but we did enough work.

"I am so excited about meeting all the new people of the BSB world. I feel like a teenager again because I know that this is a really important championship with lots of good teams and riders," the 32-year-old added.

Iannuzzo will now prepare with the team for the official test day at Donington Park on the 26th March ahead of the season opener at the same venue over the Easter weekend.
