Simoncelli vs. Laverty at Imola

Two rising stars, one track, one bike, one number

September 2009 and Marco Simoncelli competes in World Superbikes for the first time on the Aprilia RSV4. Fresh from his 250cc GP world championship, SuperSic's limitless talent and endless confidence saw him beat Max Biaggi to the last spot on the podium in Race 2.

April 2012 and rising star Eugene Laverty is on the same bike, at the same circuit, with the same number. Laverty battled to 5th and 6th. We can't help but think there's plenty more to come from the young Irishman. It's great to see these two young talents side by side.
