The Team JET Zanardo showed up almost completely in Passirano, on Sunday 7 March, for the first round of the Assoluti d’Italia di Enduro. In the small town of Passirano in the province of Brescia, the Team JET Zanardo lined up at the start of the first round of the Assoluti, the newly acquired Davide Soreca, not yet at his best after the knee operation, and the young Australian rider Andrew Wilcksch riding the Husqvarna 300 two-stroke. Joe Wootton, still recovering from his injury, did not start at the premiere of the Italian Enduro Championship. Davide Soreca gritted his teeth throughout the race and despite the few hours of training with the new bike, the Liguria-based rider ran a good race getting fourth place in the 250 4T class. Right from the first special test we immediately saw an excellent feeling with the new bike and Davide Soreca set some good times in the eighteen special tests held on the day of competition. Excellent performance also for Andrew Wilcksch who showed an excellent feeling with the Husqvarna 300 2T. The Australian rider fought with all his strength to enter the Top Ten of the difficult and hard-fought Foreigners class, however, throwing away every chance due to a crash in the last special test. The next appointment will be in Sicily in the town of Custonaci on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 March where the second and third rounds of the Assoluti will take place.
