  • Valentino Rossi and #jorgelorenzo race on the Dutch circuit, one of the tracks of the World Motorcycle Championship with the richest tradition.
  • Valentino Rossi claimed nine victories on this circuit.
  • A #partnership that brings emotions to two brands.

A new and exciting #racing weekend is under way for #abarth, partner of the Yamaha Movistar team, with the eighth seasonal GP meeting of the World Championship in the historical circuit of #assen, in The Netherlands. On the back of his success at the latest GP in Spain on the Montmelo circuit, #valentinorossi is feeling especially charged, because this is his favourite circuit, where he dominated last year, winning and recording his best time in both qualifiers and race.

Assen is the #moto GP with the strongest tradition, as these tracks have been raced since 1949, with the first World Championship, and every year this GP attracts thousands of passionate fans. #valentinorossi won 9 times here: once, in 1997, with the 125 class, once with the 250 class (1998) and seven times with the #moto GP in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013 and 2015.

Pilots #valentinorossi and #jorgelorenzo had a satisfactory first half of 2017 season, as they recorded five overall successes in seven races. A reason for #abarth to be proud, as the brand's logo is featured on the fairings of the Movistar Team motorcycles.

The same #racing soul is inside the new #abarth #595, the evolution of the icon that has been winning over fans around the world since 2008. Best in its class, the new #595 offers all the standard equipment needed to ensure the fun and driving pleasure typical of the Scorpion's cars. Available in all #abarth dealerships for a test drive, the range is offered in three trim levels: #595, #595 Turismo and #595 Competizione, and just as many engine power and tuning levels. One of the major innovations is the boost in power of the 1.4 T-jet engine that equips the #595 (145 HP) and #595 Turismo (165 HP) versions, the latter today fitted out with the Garrett turbine. Today the mechanical self-locking differential (Abarth D.A.M.) that improves the traction of the car in extreme conditions is available on the #595 Competizione on request. Koni FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) shock absorbers are now standard on both axles of the car.

Finally, the passion experienced on the circuits and on board of each #abarth car can be found in "The Scorpionship", the brand's only official community dedicated to car owners, collectors, members of the #abarth clubs and fans. Registering at the scorpionship.abarth.com website provides plenty of exciting advantages, promotions and #racing opportunities as well as exclusive invites to meetings for fans.
