Pirotta’s FIM 1000cc STK campaign
Kawasaki is pleased that young Australian road racer, Mitchell Pirotta, has signed with the Italian based team, Go Eleven, and will race a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R in the FIM STK 1000 (Superstock) class in 2013.
Mitchell Pirotta, who is the son of Sylvio Pirotta, (Dealership Principal/Owner of Kawasaki dealership On Two Wheels Motorsports), will look to achieve podium success in the FIM Superstock class in 2013 just as fellow Australian Bryan Staring did this year on board a Ninja ZX-10R.
Pirotta takes a wealth of experience with him to his new team having already won the 2010 Australian Formula Extreme Supersport Championship. 24 year old Pirotta, who started road racing in 2008, also took 2nd place in the ASBK Superstock 600 class in 2009 and competed in the World Supersport Championship in 2011.
Mitchell Pirotta is excited about his new signing, saying, “It feels awesome. It’s like a new lease of life for my career and I feel excited to race on a bike that I look at everyday.
“I know that both the Ninja ZX-10R and my new team, Go Eleven, are capable of top results. The team knows what it takes, they’re all really positive and they take on board everything that I say and ask for. Team Manager Denis Sacchetti who was a racer himself knows what it takes so all in all it’s a good thing.”
Mitchell’s first FIM STK 1000 race on board the Ninja ZX-10R with Go Eleven will be in Aragon Spain on 5-7 April.
