39 years in the Italian Motorally Championship
Mirco Miotto is the king of the Italian Motorally Championship considering that he never missed an edition over the past 39 years. Founder of the Razza Piave Motoclub and President of the Italian Team NSM that competes in rallies and enduro, Mirco is well known for his jokes, his welcoming hospitality where, at the end of a racing day, you can always find a tasty plate of spaghetti and a glass of good red wine. Off road passionate, Mirco can boast 4 Dakar participations (3 times in Africa and the first in South America), endless participations to the main International rallies from the Pharaons Rally to the Merzouga Rally. This year he returns on the Dakar in the “Original by Motul”, the category he has always competed in, with Mirko Pavan, a talented rider who started to race with the NSM Team when he was very young and this year makes his debut on the Dakar.
“If I open the memories of my past participations to the Dakar, I could write a book. The endless dunes of Mauritania were the highlights of the legendary race in Africa but I was really very well impressed also from the 2009 edition in South America. This year I’m really happy to discover Peru and to do it with “Mirketto”, a talented rider who has grown in our team, is very special. We will race with an Italian bike, the Beta, for an “all Italian team”. We are Beta dealer in Treviso and we race with Beta in the Italian Enduro and Rally Championship. As for the category, we will race in Original, as I have always done in the past Dakars. Malle Moto brings me luck as I have always finished the race - a part from 2003, when I had to retire at the 10th stage in Libia because I broke the engine. Racing the Dakar with “Mirketto”, is a project that we had from a long time. This year we finally made all things together here we are. As the budget is always the most complicated part of competing on the Dakar, I really would like to thank a motorsport passionate and businessman, Mr. Francesco Zanata from K-Laser, a company based in my home town Treviso, that produces and exports medical lasers all over the world, that has recently open to the Peruvian market”.
