Sandra Strazzari has been appointed as the International Press & PR Officer, by the FGSPORT Group, for the remaining rounds of the 2004 Superbike World Championship. She will take up the appointment at the seventh round of the Series at Laguna Seca, USA on 7th July 2004.

Sandra has been involved in motor sport since 1987 when she started working with the national media team at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Imola where she undertook translation work during press conferences. Since then she has worked at the Imola circuit for Formula 1 managing journalist and photographer accreditation, management of the media centre and accreditation centre coordination. Since the Superbike World Championship’s return to Imola in 2001 Sandra has worked in the national press office. Her experience is also supplemented by eleven years of work with the Misano Adriatico circuit where she worked in the national press office for both the Superbike World Championship and FIA European Truck Racing Cup.

‘This is a new challenge for me. I’ve run media centres in important motor sport events for many years now in Italian circuits and for this reason I think I can give my support both to Journalists and Organisers involved in this popular Championship. World Superbikes always has a friendly atmosphere in the paddock as well as the media centre and I look forward to helping all the professionals involved by trying to create a efficient and pleasant working environment,’ says Sandra.

The International Press & PR Officer’s functions, amongst others, will be to keep the world’s media up to date with SBK news and to ensure that members of the international media have their accreditation and the facilities they need at each event. She will also liaise with the national press officers with regard to the accreditation of national media and be responsible for the event press conferences during each weekend.

Nino Barra retains responsibility for the Italian national media as National Press Officer for Italy.
