Bonetti Adds European Classic Superbike Open Hill Climb Title To Resume

Stefano Bonetti added the European Classic Superbike Open Hill Climb title to his racing resume, after a successful weekend at the Isola Del Liri, Lazio based Poggio-Vallefredda event.

Bonetti competing for the Bimota Classic Parts racing team, which he hopes to compete for at next year’s Classic TT Races, showed all of his prominent Hill Climb, closed roads courses skillset on route to further enhancing a racing CV that already included North West 200, Frohburg, Classic TT podium finishes.

Not forgetting of course his impressive TT Races record which includes three top six finishes and in total to date 24 top 20 finishes.

Alongside Classic Superbike Open title success, Bonetti’s latest prodigious hill climb racing venture also yielded overall top three finishes, 1000cc class wins from competition aboard his trusty S1000RR BMW steed in the CIVS (Campionato Italiano Velocita) races.

Overall CIVS time trial victors ahead of ‘Bonny’ were FIM European Hill Climb Supersport Champion Maurizio Bottalico and quad machine mounted Fabio Ricca.
