GRESINI RACING: SIX STARS CHASING FOR GLORY IN 2020  

Imola, 15 february 2020. The World Championship project of Gresini Racing is an ever-growing process and this year is no exception: along with the confirmation of reigning MotoE World Cup champion Matteo Ferrariand Moto3 ace Gabriel Rodrigo, four more or less new faces are joining the #GresiniFamily.

Alongside the aforementioned Matteo and Gabri, there will be Alessandro Zaccone for Team Trentino Gresini MotoEand Jeremy Alcobafor the Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 outfit: two raw diamonds that Fausto Gresini selected between the CIV and CEV championships – and strongly wanted on board. If the 21-year-old Italian will make his world championship debut this year, for the Catalan #52 this is true only partly: Alcoba earned his full-time spot last year after doing well as substitute rider for Rodrigo in Austria and doing even better in England.

The most ambitious project becomes the middleweight class one, where everything has changed: first of all, the team will be back to a two-rider line-up with Edgar Ponsand Nicolò Bulegaforming a duo of young age but great potential. If the Spaniard already has two world championship seasons under his belt – and makes his return as reigning CEV Moto2 champion – Bulega has already shown last year to be ready for this category. The team will have Federal Oil as main sponsor – for one of the longest-running partnerships in the world championship.

 

 

MATTEO FERRARI #11

“This season, with one year of experience which we can exploit, it will all about fine-tuning… We already analysed all races and tests from last year and we need to understand where I can improve my riding style and where we can improve the bike set-up. It’ll be crucial to see what modifications Energica will implement in the new bike and adapt to them as quick as we can. This year, Assen is the new venue on the calendar and I must say Jerez it is kind of new as we didn’t lap much last year. With six days of testing there we will all be very competitive come the first race. The goal is to improve, so we start we a very clear idea.”

 

ALESSANDRO ZACCONE #61

“It’s my first year to the ‘real’ world championship, even though I already raced in SBK. I’m very excited, but at the same time very charged up. It’s a dream come true, so the first crucial test for me will be to stay focused and with both feet on the ground, especially in the first races as I’ll need to understand the bike. I already asked Matteo (Ferrari) for advice, and he explained me something, but obviously as a rider I cannot wait to try the bike. Through the years I basically ‘stalked’ Fausto in order to race for him, so now I hope this is only the beginning of a dream that has in part already come true.”
