MICHAEL RUBEN RINALDI WILL RIDE GO ELEVEN’S DUCATI!
Michael Ruben Rinaldi # 21, rider born in 1995 in Rimini, jumps on the Ducati Panigale V4-R vacated by Eugene Laverty!
The talent from Romagna, despite his young age, has already achieved great international results; in 2015 he becomes European Stock 600 former champion behind Toprak Razgatliouglu, then beaten in 2017 by winning the Superstock 1000 title with the Aruba.it Racing-Junior Team. In 2018 he changes category to Superbike, where he has good races as a Wild Card on the Ducati Panigale R, showing off on different tracks.
At his first full season in the WorldSBK he amazes everyone by almost achieving the podium on two occasions, getting a fourth and a fifth place as the best result.
For Micheal 2020 will continue to speak in “Red”: fourth consecutive year riding the Ducati and the second with the V4-R!
The Go Eleven staff would like to thank Ducati Corse for believing in the project, in order to bring an Italian rider on an Italian manufacturer up.
Ready for this new adventure, we can’t wait for the engines to turn on!
Denis Sacchetti (Team Manager):
“Needless to hide the enthusiasm, I am really happy to be able to work with a guy who is so aggressive and so hungry for results; he is also a Romagna doc, just like me!
Michael is the young Italian promise of World Superbike. His great talent is undisputed, in his first full year of the world championship, he has almost achieved the podium, and this confirms everything about Rinaldi’s potential for growth. The Go Eleven Team was particularly keen on welcoming him to the team; we believe he is one of the most interesting riders on the Italian scene and we are convinced he will be able to do a lot of good results with us.”
Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Rider):
“It is a pleasure and an honor to have this opportunity with the Go Eleven Team!
I am happy because thanks to them, who have wanted me, we managed to find a good agreement.
“My goal remains to continue to grow because it will be only my second consecutive year in Superbike. We can get good results and we will be able to have a better consistency than last year.
“I thank Denis Sacchetti, Gianni Ramello and all the sponsors for giving me this opportunity. I can’t wait to start in January, in the tests, to get ready for the first race and take away a lot of satisfaction!”
