Aussie on MV in BSSTK

This was just posted down here.
I know Warwick. He is a very proffessional, and passionate rider who I believe will do MV proud. He is a past World Endurance Champ and is one of the regular commentators on Fox for the World Supers.
I wish Warwick and his team all the best.

Warwick Nowland to ride with MV Agusta in British Superstock

If racing around for 6 hours, 8 hours and 24 hours is not enough, Warwick has just agreed to race the exquisite MV Augusta F4 312 in the British Championship.

Warwick received a phone call on the evening he arrived at Le Mans for Round 1 of the QMMF Endurance World Championship and since then negotiations have resulted in a new challenge for the 2 times Endurance World Champion. The team behind Warwick and the mighty MV Augusta are a relatively new name to racing. STP Racing are based near the Mallory Park circuit in the British Midlands and at barely 3 years young, team owner Jon Strike has big plans for his professional outfit. Jon has close ties with the MV Augusta Factory in Italy where a new F4 is being prepared for Warwick. The team will contest the remaining 8 rounds of the British Superstock Championship and have already started plans for 2008 and 2009.

Warwick; Its a great opportunity and perfectly timed. 6 Rounds of the Endurance World Championship is not really enough racing even though we have testing to do as well. Now, I have testing and development with STP Racing and the link to the Factory is great. This is a long term project for all of us and we plan to succeed. I have to admit, the MV Augusta is a big attraction for me. Its a work of art, simply beautiful. Im really looking forward to developing the bike even though at this stage, we are only using it in the Superstock class. Im fortunate to have been called by my friend, Bob Cooley who is involved with Jon. They are passionate about racing and incredibly positive, we fit together well.

The first race for Warwick and his new machine will be at Round 5 of the British Championship to be held at Snetterton in just under 2 weeks time. With the new bike still being prepared in Italy, time will be short however the team will test before Snetterton. It will give Warwick time to get a feeling for the bike and of course the Metzeler tyres. The British Superstock Championship runs a control tyre rule similar to the Superbike World Championship.

This new venture brings Phase One Yamaha team mate Glen Richards to the other side of the ring as he currently dominates the British Superstock series aboard his Yamaha R1.

Glen is the man at the moment and I am hoping to be alongside him and then in front of him as soon as possible! I will have to be very strong. This class is the closest and most competitive anywhere in the World. Ive looked at qualifying times and the first 25 riders are covered by 1 second!

7 years have past since Warwick last raced in the British Championship, does the Aussie have un-finished business in Britain?
I just want to work with a good team and win races. Its as simple as that. I had an opportunity to race for a Factory team in the British Superbike Championship and it was taken away from me without even riding the bike. What happened in the past is just that, the past. Now I am starting a new project and next year I could be on a Factory bike in the British Superbike Championship, I like that idea.

MVASyd, thank you for posting this most interesting information about MV Agusta's participation in British Superstock. Warwick certainly has a dedicated team partnering him, and let us all wish them great success.
