Several people on here are racing them, and at different levels of competition and specification.

There are two threads in 'on the track' and one in the F3 section.

Try a search, or a bit of browsing, it won't take you long to find them.

Oh he's so modest our Greg - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=48742 - after we taught him some manners .
There is also Nils who is getting ready - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=50639
Then Tom here is building a pretty mean F3 for a customer - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=50312 -
And Corran get's up to no good as well, but won't share too much info yet - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/member.php?u=38460

Then there is the Manx 675 crew but no pictures as yet, waiting patiantly. If you are on Facebook, I can point you to a few guys in Europe and the Middle Eastern Countries too.
But welcome none the less Rich, let us know where you are on this little planet.

Hey Rich, it will be a good decition to race with F3. This year it will be my 2. season. And if you compare with other stock bikes, the F3 will be the best i think. Last year i've been riding with stock bike and had no problems to fight with more powerfull bikes...
The F3 gives you a very good feeling, if you are accustomed with the drive by wire...
...
where are you from and where do you want to race?
btw, welcome to the passion club

Hey mate,Im going on tuesday to pick up a 2013 F3 then the build will start,Ive been racing a Ducati 749 and took my 1199 Tri out on a few weekends to race it also,but its too much bike for my local track,I think the F3 will be a great bike to race,Few questions for you is there any need to chance the triple clamps or is the bike great out of the crate?I race Dunlops tires and i know they can change some bikes feel.

the bike is great out of the box! but i have no experience with dunlops.
you have to install an steering damper, this is important. of corse you shout cut out the cat in the manifold by install an aftermarket manifold like Zard. if not U should protect the fairings in the cat area for heating...

You will have to have a steering dampner to pass tech. It is a requirement in both CCS and Wera. Which club are you racing in?. If u are on the east coast as I am you should be in the mid atlantic region. What state are you in? I'm pretty sure ypu are buying a forum members bike. Is it red and silver?
