Team Trentino Gresini MotoE has confirmed – as the most natural and logical choice – Matteo Ferrari, as the star of the team’s MotoE line-up for the upcoming season. Currently leading the standings with two races left to be contested, the #11 Italian rider showed great adaptation skills to the new bike and – despite the young age – a great amount of experience in the first-ever edition of the MotoE World Cup.
For all these reasons, Team Trentino Gresini MotoE has shown great will to come to an agreement before of the final event of the season at Valencia, in which Ferrari will battle for the first-ever title of this new and surprising category.
It is going to be a thrilling weekend with Matteo Ferrari, who is going to do the utmost to defend himself from the many title rivals. He currently holds a 19-point advantage on his main opponent Garzo, but 12 are the riders still mathematically in contention for the title – with 50 points still to be awarded. MotoE proceedings will get underway on Thursday at 16:00 local time (GMT+1).
MATTEO FERRARI #11“I’m very pleased to continue with Team Trentino Gresini for the upcoming 2020 MotoE season. We have improved so much since the start of the season and the team work allowed me to get to Misano on top form and to win both races. This has been possible thanks of the faith shown by Fausto and the team, which was transferred to me to, and this is the perfect base to build on in order to clinch our goals and match expectations. I really want to be ready for all the opportunities the team will be able to give me on the world stage. But for now let’s focus on Valencia, which is the most important thing!”
FAUSTO GRESINI – TEAM MANAGER “It’s surely a great pleasure to have Matteo onboard also for next year. Not only he is without a doubt a talented rider, but he also showed he could quickly adapt to these new MotoE prototypes, which has been the key to what has been so far an excellent season – and we hope it will be more of the same in Valencia. It was important to count on him also for the following season, as we’re confident he can be pivotal for this important project.”
