SBK FOR ABRUZZO
On the starting-grid for Race 1 at Assen, the riders of the Superbike World Championship displayed a banner "Forza Abruzzo" to express their solidarity and their support for the population of Abruzzo (Italy), which was recently hit by an earthquake on April 6th.
In addition, during the next round of the Superbike World Championship at Monza from 8-10 May, a charity auction will be organized in the paddock on Saturday afternoon following the Superpole. Helmets and leathers will be made available by the riders for the auction. The proceeds, together with a contribution from Infront Motor Sports, will be devolved to the National Civil Protection unit in support for the work being carried out in Abruzzo to assist the population.
