I.C.Team runs training programme for young mechanics

The I.C.Team, who participate in the 125cc category of the World Championship, are offering young mechanics training opportunities linked to the preparation of bikes for competition.

125cc World Championship participants I.C.Team, who recently tasted victory at the Pramac Grand Prix of China courtesy of young Italian rider Andrea Iannone, are this season carrying out a training programme which allows young mechanics and technicians to sample the world of motorcycle competition.

The course provides both theoretical and practical lessons which the team´s regular staff participate in with the students. The selected apprentices (studying mechanical disciplines at technical colleges) are therefore given hands-on opportunities to experience what it takes to prepare race machinery.

A first group of fortunate students recently got the chance to work closely with the I.C.Team´s full-time mechanics at the Gran Premio d´Italia Alice, assisting Iannone and Japanese rider Takaaki Nakagami over the duration of the GP weekend.
