Company Gresini Racing

Founded by the two-time 125cc World Champion Fausto Gresini, who recently passed away, Gresini Racing has been competing in the MotoGP World Championship since 1997, achieving prestigious sporting results. In addition to the five world titles won in 2001 with Daijiro Kato (250cc), in 2010 with Toni Elias (Moto2), 2018 with Jorge Martin (Moto3) and the Del Conca Gresini Team (Moto3), and in 2019 with Matteo Ferrari (MotoE), there are also the MotoGP World Championship runner-up titles obtained for three consecutive years, in 2003 and 2004 with Sete Gibernau and in 2005 with Marco Melandri, as well as the Moto3 runner-up title of Fabio Di Giannantonio in 2018. The latest achievement is the spectacular third place of Enea Bastianini in 2022. All of this is the result of 73 victories and an impressive 213 podium finishes. Gresini Racing has also seen champions like Alex Barros, Loris Capirossi, Colin Edwards, and Marco Simoncelli among its ranks.

Today, Gresini Racing faces a new challenge: the 2024 season sees them seeking confirmation in MotoGP with the Marquez brothers, who together boast 10 titles. In Moto2, there is another all-Spanish lineup with Manu Gonzalez and Albert Arenas, while in MotoE, Matteo Ferrari and Alessio Finello have been confirmed.
