With Valentino Rossi’s legacy spreading to the WorldSBK paddock, five WorldSSP300 riders begin their training!

Five WorldSSP300 riders have arrived in Cattolica for the opportunity of a lifetime with the VR46 Master Camp, as part of the seventh addition of the intensive training course. Founded by nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi, the course features many other racing industry experts to pass on all of their help and guidance.

Finn de Bruin (Team Trasimeno Yamaha), Italian teammate Kevin Sabatucci, Andy Verdoia (BCD Yamaha MS Racing) and his teammate Beatriz Neila are all in the line-up – Neila becoming the first ever female in the challenge. Jacopo Facco (Semakin Di Depan Biblion Motoxracing) is the fifth rider to complete the Master Camp grid.

The five-day course will feature fitness expert Carlo Casabianca and multiple flat-track champion, Marco Belli and a whole host of other instructors, to monitor the WorldSSP300 riders’ progress. The aim of the VR46 Master Camp is to improve the skills and professionalism of young Yamaha riders, nurturing young talent and helping riders reach their potential.

The WorldSSP300 riders missed race action at Imola and will be keen to put all their new skills into practice at the Acerbis Spanish Round, from the 7th – 9th June, a circuit which always provides great WorldSSP300 racing action.
