We met in Monaco and immediately a complicity was born between us and I am very happy to receive advices and have Virginio trust. Virginio represents for me a legend and a great champion. He also sponsored my MV Agusta Experiencedonly which is a beautiful but also a difficult lady to handle. It is very exciting to ride with this bike.
How did you first meet Pakelo? I discovered Pakelo thanks to Virginio Ferrari and immediately I loved Pakelo Team. Pakelo motor oil is perfect because it has a high level of technology and quality. Stunting motorbike implies more of oil than other motorbikes.
