Team Rumiís approach to racing goes back to 1987, when the first ltalian and then in 1988 World Superbike Championships were born, to continue the following years in other new classes created to give a fair opportunity to good tuners and riders to obtain satisfactory results on small budgets and commercial motorcycles available to all. The Team starts off in the World Superbike Championship ( a championship for our stroke machines only ), winning the first two editions straight out of the gate in 1988 and 1989 with Fred Merkel. The Team continues the effort in the World Superbike Championship with other brilliant riders to then switch to the 600 Supersport Championship with sixteen year old Ruben Xuas and in time, when even in this class the manufactures started introducing factory machines, to the Superstock class. In 2002 Team Rumi is back in the SBK World Championship with Englishman Mark Hackles as Honda Castrolís satellite team on the VTRSP2, but after a low key season and the worldwide difficult economical moment, the team decides to dedicate more time to the upcoming national racing realities. Yes, because since 1987, the Team has also started engine and bike preparations for other teams and riders, achieving great satisfaction also in this field. The great experience achieved in racing and the research and development done by the in-house technicians has created a line of special parts and HONDA engine preparations, supported by the participation in various championships for final testing. In 2001 a new company named Googhy is in charge of selling RUMIís special parts and organizing national Cups with the highly qualified support of the teamís men.

After 2003 the prevalent activity is the preparation and the develop of bike for external private teams with race assistance too and the develop of prototype.

Another activity is the realization of race replica of the most important bike prepared by Rumi team in past like RC-30 and RC 45 with the same fairing color and level of preparation.
