The two parties will part company with immediate effect

The MIE Racing and Althea Racing cooperation has come to an end after today’s WorldSBK Prosecco DOC Aragon Round. The decision has been taken by mutual understanding of both parties and they will now take different directions. The partnership between Althea and Honda dates back to 2008, and Althea picked up their Honda collaboration in 2019 with Moriwaki.

Midori Moriwaki, MIE Racing owner, said: "From 2019, we have undertaken a project in WorldSBK together. It was a challenging project for all of us, but I could make it happen because of Mr. Bevilacqua. Since we collaborated in the Moriwaki Italian Junior Cup back in 2008, we have always shared the same passion for motorsports. This time we have chosen to go in different directions after many years of great motorsports friendship with Genesio Bevilacqua, but that friendship will never end, and I deeply appreciate all the support received from himself and Althea Racing.

From the upcoming Teruel Round, the team name will change to MIE Racing Honda Team with Takumi Takahashi as sole rider.
