from Alessandro Mazzocchetti

It has been three fantastic years, an ideal group, he did not have a mistake. Among the many finest recollections there’s actually the presentation of the whole Group on the finish of January 2019 in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) contained in the Petronas Tower. The working relationship with the Group Director Johan Stigefelt. The sumptuous phrases that my workers and I’ve acquired from Valentino Rossi for the work carried out within the final 12 months

Then with the announcement of Valentino Rossi’s farewell and Petronas’s retirement, a system broke and people who managed it discovered themselves confronted with difficulties. I handled graphics, design, portray and the whole lot associated to innovation and know-how. Till the final Grand Prix, I questioned which path to take for the long run. This season I deepened my friendship with Valentino Rossi’s group: particular individuals who taught me so many issues. If I proceed to work as a crew exclusivist I want to proceed with VR46, in any other case I’ll proceed to do observe service for all groups in want.

My place has by no means been within the stability, our response was one among huge remorse that we’d not proceed with Group PSRT, all added to the very fact of the announcement of Valentino’s retirement. All of this collectively was a tough blow to just accept. Some mechanics have modified jobs, some have gone to Canada, some are nonetheless out of labor. In the mean time we’re nonetheless in talks with a Prime Group as ‘Official Painter’. Nonetheless, over the last race in Valencia, with my workers we determined that subsequent season we might be obtainable to all groups as ‘Affiliate Service Firm’ for fairings portray and restore providers, graphic providers, printing, carving and adhesive utility.

As the entire world gave because of Valentino Rossi this weekend in Valencia, I would really like as soon as once more to thank him too with an anecdote, since I painted his Aprilia 125 from the First World Championship in 1997 and his final bike within the MotoGP World Championship. . It was the best satisfaction and it provides me the need to proceed. He was the one one who mentioned to me “How are you?”, “How are you doing, inform me …”. Phrases not spoken even by those that have recognized me for a lifetime. Throughout the social gathering within the paddock he approached me asking me to carry him onto the bench: “Assist me, I’ve to throw myself into the gang”. A singular emotion. I’m joyful to have met Gianluca Falcioni, Alessio Salucci and Valentino. Individuals who taught me how necessary it’s to have a ardour for this world.
