Italtrans Racing Team presents the 2023 lineup
A passion, a family, an adventure.
With the official presentation at the Italtrans SpA headquarters in Calcinate (BG), the new 2023 season of the Italtrans Racing Team begins.
A beautiful story that began 14 years ago, which with its successes has consecrated the team from Bergamo among the reference formations of the intermediate class of the MotoGP World Championship.
Also this year the commitment in the Moto2 class is renewed with two Triumph-powered Kalex. Riding two very talented riders: the reconfirmed Joe Roberts and the new entry Dennis Foggia.
In his third season with Italtrans Racing Team, the American is ready to prove himself among the best in the category. Thanks to the experience gained and teamwork, the Malibu driver’s goal is to be among the protagonists of this 2023, aware of the mistakes he has made and ready to confirm his potential.
Next to him is Dennis Foggia, who like Enea Bastianini and Lorenzo Dalla Porta has chosen Italtrans Racing Team for the leap to Moto2. After a brilliant 2022 as a protagonist in the fight for the Moto3 class World Champion title, the Roman rider will make his debut with the aim of growing and gaining experience.
In two weeks, exactly on 17-18-19 March, the team will take to the track in Portimao for three days of official tests. The following weekend, 25-26 March, again on the Portimao circuit, the first Grand Prix of this new 2023 season.

“Our adventure in Moto2 continues. Being here again, after 14 years of work and experience, makes us one of the reference teams in the world championship. Once again a double challenge awaits us: that of Joe, who we hope will be confirmed among the best, and that of Dennis, who, like other riders before him, has chosen us for the leap from Moto3 to Moto2 and will take on the role of rookie in a totally new class. We are very happy with his choice and with the trust he has in our team. We have all the credentials to be protagonists and this season too we will be on track with the aim of demonstrating all our talent. We are proud and proud of our team and all the guys who make it up. Thanks to all the sponsors for their precious support in this adventure.

“I am very happy to have joined the Italtrans Racing Team family. I felt good right from the first tests and I can’t wait to get back on track to get to work with the team. It will be important to find the right feeling both with the bike and with the guys, with the aim of growing together. The team will put all its experience into play to support me and help me grow in Moto2″.

“I am very happy to start this new year with the team. In recent months I have had the opportunity to rest and stay at home with my family. I’m happy to be back in Europe and see everyone again after the winter break: last year we had some good races and I know I can improve this year”.

Joe will have to put into practice everything he has learned in previous seasons and demonstrate his full potential.
