MV Agusta is famous for its racing heritage.
I think that the marque is synonymous to racing. Actually our beloved marque has a much greater heritage that Ducati. Ducati is going very well competing in WSBK and MotoGP champiosnhips.
I know that we are running through a heavy financial crisis these days but i think that MV Agusta should think more about its racing plans for the future. If i tried to connect an automobile marque with MV Agusta this would definately be Ferrari. And i think Ferrari is nothing without racing.
What do you think about this? Should MV Agusta risk and compete in a world championship?

As much as I would LOVE to see it, I think a return to top-level racing is just a dream at the moment. Remember, MV were prepared to supply machinery & back-up to Carl Fogarty for the 2008 WSB season, but he couldn't raise the budget.
Now, if the combination of MV's heritage & Foggy's WSB reputation can't find a sponsor, it looks a remote proposition. I think a better idea would be a focussed attack on European Superstock to raise the profile of both the brand and the new F4; the outgoing model showed a turn of speed earlier this season in the hands of Davide Guiliano, so hopefully the new one would be very competitive. And it's a cheap way of going racing! Here's hoping!




P.S. Nice shot of Ready at Cadwell!!!

I'm not sure 'heritage' is the right term in this instance. Whilst the now defunct Meccanica Verghera Agusta was/is rightly famed for its competition successes, MV as we know it today is not. It's a completely different company.

To place the modern day MV above Ducati in this regard is to do Ducati a real disservice. :jsm:

Much of the 'drive' behind MV Agusta's racing programmes in the 50's, 60's and early 70's was Count Agusta's himself. I agree with Steve, firstly the MV of today is a different company and although Cagiva has a racing heritage too, I think the budget to field a work's team wouldn't justify the returns in respect of increased sales. On the other hand, if a Billionaire interested in seeing MV go racing again is reading this, perhaps he/she might just take a passing interest??:stickpoke:stickpoke Lol.
