Professional trainers and drivers from California Super Bike School flew in to Doha recently to provide training and advice for motor bike riders and fans over two full days at a programme organised by Alfardan Motorcycles. Former World Super Bike champion Max Biaggi met with Aprilia clients and fans at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar over the two days. Biaggi welcomed his guests and fans and gave them advice and insights from his long experience in motor bike sport. Biaggi exhorted participants to abide with safety standards and safe driving either on the track or on public roads at all times. Expressing his happiness to be in Qatar, he said: “Although it is not the first visit; but my visit this time is very special, and I am very pleased to meet with my fans and with Aprilia riders from Qatar, Lebanon, UAE. I answered a lot of their questions and shared riding tips and experiences, I am happy to interact with everyone, and though some of their questions surprise me at times, others are a great source of motivation and inspiration in other times.” A press conference was held at the Kempinski Residences and Suites Doha on the occasion of this visit. The press conference was attended by Mohamed Kandeel, general manager, Alfardan Motorcycles - official importer for Piaggio Group in Qatar; Nicolas Boukather, deputy general manager at ANB Motorcycles - official importer for Piaggio Group in Lebanon; and have Massimilano Gerbi, head of importers region of Piaggio Group; and Max Biaggi, World Super Bike Champion in 2010. Kandeel thanked Biaggi and the Piaggio Group on their visit to Qatar, especially at this time, concurrent with the Pan-Arab Games 2011 held in Qatar. He added: “We are proud to be the official importers for Piaggio Group, and we are pleased to have Max Biaggi here with us today, with our customers, our guests and our friends from Lebanon and the UAE. We reiterate our commitment to the importance of the preparation and organisation of these events in Qatar, which aims to strengthen and consolidate the assets and skills of safe driving by both a World Champion and with a professional and accredited school such as California Bike School, and in collaboration with the Piaggio Group, and Biaggi, who shared with his fans how he undergoes intensive training so that he can achieve world rankings in international races.” Kandeel said the company is committed to organising these events, to promote motorsports in controlled and safe environments, and promote safe driving at all times, which is a token of appreciation and participation towards the nation’s strategy to being the capital of the sports world in the region.
