11.04.2008: TV Coverage of the FIM Supermoto Grand Prix of Italy

The FIM SuperMoto Grand Prix of Italy, to take place in Torino on April 13th, will be broadcast live and delayed according to the attached schedule.

THE OVAL LINGOTTO AND TORINO

The fantastic Oval Lingotto race track, which last year played host to the maiden night time SuperMoto GP, is located in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games area, alongside the ice skating facility. The course is inside the Torino Expo Area and is one of the most glamorous and fascinating venues in the calendar, also due to its location close to the glittering city centre of Torino.

Torino’s city centre is actually only 500 metres away from the Oval Lingotto, adding a special value to this location. Torino has been the heart of FIAT, one of the major Italian car manufacturers, and in the twenties the Lingotto area was hosting a branch of the manufacturer.

The Torpedo, the Balilla, the Topolino and other significant cars in FIAT’s history passed through the Lingotto factory. With the branch being closed since 1982, now the Lingotto hosts one of architect Renzo Piano’s masterpieces, in the likes of the "Bolla" - a dream facility made of steel and crystal.

TORINO MOTORFEST

The first FIM SuperMoto Grand Prix of 2008 will be run inside the event "Torino Motorfest" by Magic For Fun, which is a mix of sport and fun, and offers the spectators lots of activities related to motorcycling. With the Grand Prix being the top sportive event inside the Motorfest, there will be also Freestyle Motocross shows and contests featuring the breathtaking trick called "backflip".

The rock band "The New Story" will play live and lots of special guests will attend the event throughout the weekend. Riding schools for participants of any age will be organised with the supervision of FMI (Italian Motorcycling Federation) technicians but the spectators will also enjoy bike and car tests. On Sunday there will be the special test of the hydrogen powered scooters "Hysyrider" by Hysylab. During the whole weekend the Ristorante Italiano will provide gourmet Italian food.
