Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 is approaching the 2017 Moto3 World Championship with a pair of riders with great ambitions: in his debut season on the World stage, Fabio Di Giannantonio has quickly become one of the top players of the current championship, showing an incredible growth. Since his sensational first podium finish, the second place last May at Mugello, the 18-year-old Italian rider has in fact been able to fight constantly at the top, putting himself surprisingly in seventh place in the overall standings. Next to “Diggia” there will be 18-year-old Spaniard Jorge Martin, another young talented rider and potential protagonist of the upcoming season.

The first test of the Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 in preparation for the 2017 Championship is scheduled for 16 and 17 November at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, in Spain.

“We decided to renew this partnership because it was exciting to be part of the Moto2 and Moto3 teams managed by Fausto Gresini during this season. Our commitment in the Grand Prix World Championship is conceived also to give the opportunity to our clients to live unique experiences, and this is only possible through great sponsorship agreements like this. It’s a big task for us, but the Gresini Team has proven to be able to take care of our guests, making them even more thrilled about the sport and sharing with them the most exciting moments of the season. Giving our name to the Moto3 team is not just follow a great desire of my father, but it’s also the right way to increase the visibility of our brand in a competition where the will, the courage and talent of the young riders triumph”.
“The agreement reached with Del Conca for the 2017 season represents a major consolidation of the collaboration born earlier this year: therefore I would like to thank the Mularoni family for the trust they are putting in our team. A partnership that continues and is strengthened in the name of Enzo Mularoni, following his great passion and the strong attachment he has always shown for our team. Del Conca is going through a period of strong international expansion, with large investments in production, and we are so happy and proud to support the company in this process of growth through a strategic sponsorship to convey their brand. We are going to face a great challenge in 2017, but we are confident that we have built a winning team: Fabio Di Giannantonio has grown a lot, proving to be able to fight at the top, and beside him there will be another young talent, Jorge Martin, ready to get great results”
