Rochdale MV Agusta dealer Robinsons is planning to a run a two man MV Agusta team in BSB next year.

Robinsons say they have full backing from the Varese-based manufacturer and UK importer MotoGB and are preparing what they call, the ‘latest-spec’ 2013 MV Agusta F4-RR machines in readiness for an exciting season’s racing.

Steve Rostron, General Manager of Robinsons of Rochdale said in the official team PR: “These are exciting times for MV Agusta and British racing in general. The MSV-run BSB series is the best domestic series in the world, so it’s little wonder that MV Agusta want the UK series to be the crucible in which their amazing updated F4-RR is tested against the best machines and riders from around the globe.

“We are under no illusions as to the work ahead to ensure the machine’s competitiveness in the heat of this intense competition, but with the backing of the factory and with some exciting future developments we hope to get the MV Agusta name back on the map in British racing.

“We intend to run a strong, two-man team so we can develop the F4 into a true championship contender. Much of the infrastructure is already in place, as the team will feature race hospitality that will seat 50 people, a top-line team manager and two riders – all of whom are yet to be named.”
