Great job Robby and Parkin Go team. This is a great day for me, I think MV and also the F3.

Yes! Let's hope this translates onto other racing levels, and shows that MV is committed to competing at all levels of racing.

My sincerest wish is that all our "37 world championships stickers" on our tanks become obsolete.

Gutted for Iddon as it seemed he might have the pace to go with Kenan. But hats off to Rolfo for a great ride to come from 16th on the grid to the podium. What is most amazing to me though is that Steve Martin was saying that the F3's are using stock production gear boxes with only slightly revised first gear. When they got some more parts mid year things are going to be even better.

Great news. I hope they get their first win soon. It would be great to see MV Agusta race a CRT or in the WSBK class.

Why on earth would you want to see an MV running around at the back of the pack, in a class that has nothing to do with the bikes you buy on the road.
Surely MV can't possibly be stupid enough to throw money at that class.

I just watched the race again and holy heck can the F3 hold a tight line. If they can squeeze a little more top end and acceleration out of the corners the F3 will be a beast.
