As the national championships get underway one by one, the latest to open for business is this year's instalment of the Italian CIV. This weekend the opening round takes place at the Mugello circuit, the scene of June's Gran Premio d'Italia Alice, with several ex-MotoGP riders participating.

One of those is Franco Battaini, a former 250cc rider who participated in the elite class with Blata in 2005. He will now compete in Supersport alongside Mirko Giansanti, whilst former 125cc World Champion Alessandro Gramigni and ex-Yamaha rider Lucio Pedercini will run in the Superbikes category.
