be1 racing will be joining big brother triumph-sc on the wss grid fielding none other than the world’s best supersport bike – the daytona 675 :D last year, be1 raced a 675 in the italian supersport championship and managed a best second place finish at mugello.
be1 brought their bikes to valencia to test in early january and looked impressive. veteran rider, ivan clementi, posted a time that would land him on the front row of last year’s grid while teammate, mark aitchison, was 7-tenths behind.
a few weeks later, they were back in spain at the almeria wss test. despite its short development, the 675 was very competitive. clementi posted the 2nd fastest time of the event behind gb-honda rider craig jones who broke the circuit lap record. according to clementi, who was running an advanced marelli marvel 4 ignition system, “the new engine management is undoubtedly a step forward.” on the standard bike, aitchison managed a very respectable 6th place.
a new sheriff’s in town and the wss paddock is shaking in its boots. yeeehaaaw!!! the next wss test is in doha feb 10-11. stay tuned…
