Bevilacqua – Superbike is on holiday. Kawasaki dominates the 2016 World Championship. The show cries. Rhea and Sykes kill it. Few spectators at the circuit. Low TV public. A level never seen before. Even when the bikes were more inferior. However, the TV rights acquisition costs are very high.
Bevilacqua has the solution. The owner of Althea raced many world championships. Always with excellent results. He also won titles. So, his proposal will discuss. “The solution is “the triple Serie A” (the Italian soccer championship). I have talked with Carmelo Ezpeleta. Moto3, Superbike and MotoGP must run in a single competition day. I have some doubts about the Moto2. About its real essence. Its spectacular nature. Its ability to prepare riders for the MotoGP. The right step is Superbike.” said Bevilacqua.
Bevilacqua: “Superbike and its Riders would have a more natural evolution”
“We would eliminate a category. With this solution. The Moto2. The Superbike and its player would have the right visibility. The Superbike’s sponsors did not invest much. For example, the 2016 championship does not offer much in terms of visibility, spectators and cost-benefit. However, with this solution the Superbike and its riders would have a more natural evolution. They could grow. Thanks to the MotoGP world championship. The Superbike will stop being a category with 5-6 riders. It would become a category full of stars.” added the owner of Althea.
Also Bevilacqua has a solution for the Superbike team with less money. “They could run a European championship. Eight or nine races. So, not fifteen like now. Then, the Superbike’s riders have the opportunity to ride in a real top class. For example, we also integrate the Supersport. Because many other categories crush it. It would become a real entry class. It is important in terms of costs.” concluded the owner of Althea. So, Genesio Bevilacqua serves the shock.
