Is Guandalini Racing going to switch to Aprilia’s RSV4 Factory next season? According to Italian website Sbk Point the only thing missing is the official press release.
Aprilia’s Giampiero Sacchi has said he was interested leasing their four cylinder RSV’s machines to a second team, but in recent months the idea seemed to pale, but in light of performances of the Aprilia, especially in the second part of the year with Max Biaggi taking fourth in the standings and Marco Simoncelli and Leon Camier’s performances, the Noale based manufacturer may have had a change of heart.
Czech rider Jakub Smrz has already been confirmed with Guandalini for 2010.
While BSB 2009 Champion Leon Camier, who rode the final two rounds substituting Shinya Nakano, is still waiting to hear if he’ll be Max Biaggi team mate on the factory Aprilia WSB next year.
