WSS: Yamaha back in WSS

“I have known Giuliano [Rovelli, Yamaha ParkinGO Team owner] for a few years now; in the past we could not find the possibility to do something together. The respect for each other has continued however and when the opportunity became available we were able to come to an agreement within a very short time.

“It is definitely a challenge to start at this late stage with the preparations, but the team and riders are professional and they will have full access to our information database for setup to progress quickly into the season. We consider the test in Portimao this week mainly as a shakedown for both bike and riders.”

“We managed to reach a mutually satisfying agreement with Yamaha Motor Europe in just ten days time,” said Rovelli. “Having the opportunity to work with a manufacturer that has racing in its philosophy makes a big difference. I shared this important decision with the whole team.

“Chaz Davies and Luca Scassa are professional riders and are looking forward to having the chance to win the World Supersport Championship with a very competitive Yamaha R6!”

Davies and 2010 team-mate David Salom finished fourth and fifth in the 2010 WSS standings on the Daytona 675.

The 2011 line-up sees British rider Davies remain with the team, joined by new Italian team-mate Scassa., who impressed in 2010 as one of the top privateer World Superbike riders.
