EAB Ten Kate Junior Team signed Italian Fabio Massei for the remainder of the European Superstock 1000 season. In 2012, Massei also defended the colors of the EAB Ten Kate Junior Team and ended 8th in the championship.
The youngster from Rome replaces Danny de Boer, who scored two points on his debut for the EAB Ten Kate Junior Team three weeks ago at Portimao in Portugal. Massei is very well-known in the European Superstock paddock as he has nearly thirty races under his Superstock 1000 belt. Massei will be joined by European Superstock 600 championship rider Bastien Chesaux.
Manuel Cappelletti (team manager): “First I would like to thank Danny de Boer for his very good job in Portimao. Danny is a nice guy and for sure a rider with a good potential. I’m happy to announce that we are going to finish the Superstock 1000 season with Fabio Massei. We know him and his talent very well. Fabio is very happy to be back in the World Superbike paddock and hungry for success. We decide to continue with him, starting from Imola, because he´s an Italian rider and that´s important for our Italian sponsors and technical partners.”
