All proceeds made by the event will go to the Marco Simoncelli foundation.
The formula of the show is an interesting one: a team formed by a Supermoto rider and a MotoGP or SBK or Motocross specialist, will alternate in an endurance race lasting 58 laps.
The top Italian Supermoto riders like Lazzarini, Beltrami Ravaglia, Gozzini and Verderosa will be competing. But also top International Supermoto riders like Adrien Chareyre, Van Den Bosch, Chambon, Hermunen, Vermeulen, Kejmar and Winstanley will compete at the Endurance race.
