Multi-time 250cc champion, Max Biaggi, had the honor of piloting the Energica Ego Corsa around Mugello and was brought back in time to his glory days of racing.
Begin press release:
Energica Ego Corsa was taken for a spin yesterday around the turns and elevation changes of the Mugello Circuit in what was the race day of the Italian Grand Prix – round six of the 2018 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship.
In front of a multicolored and vocal ocean of fans covering every inch of the grandstands and hills surrounding the track, six-time world champion Max Biaggi jumped aboard the track-ready, all-electric superbike machine by Energica for a fun and meaningful demo lap of the legendary Italian venue.
“It has been a fantastic lap, like a throwback in time! To be doing the demo lap in front of a hundred thousand fans in those colourful grandstands brought me back to the times when I was fighting for victories in MotoGP. Even back then the riders’ fan clubs were located at specific corners of the track – mine was at the Casanova-Savelli!” said Max Biaggi. The lap was great and I really enjoyed it. It was almost a relief when I left the pit-lane and headed out onto the straight down to the first turn. I was coming from a full year of not being on any type of motorcycle due to the accident I had in July last year. Overall it was a really great experience and maybe something to repeat one day?”
The road to the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup will have its next stop in a fortnight’s time at Catalunya’s Circuit de Montmeló, where an updated version of the MotoE™ prototype by Energica will also be tested.
