VFT Racing to make wild card appearances in WorldSBK for 2017

Italian team to return to class this season

VFT Racing have announced they will participate in MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship rounds across the 2017 season in wild card appearances, aboard a Ducati machine.

After testing over the winter, the team feel ready to build their pace back up in the competitive series, and hope to make a strong impact in their appearances this season.

Following injuries sustained last year, Italian rider Fabio Menghi was unable to compete in 2017 due to his fitness; he was forced to sit out of racing for eight months after he suffered a hip fracture, and three broken tendons in his shoulder. The news that he will compete in a handful of WorldSBK races this season comes as he hopes to make a full return for 2018.
