Enea Bastianini awarded with Motosprint's "Casco Tricolore"

Posted on


Gresini Racing Team Moto3 racer Enea Bastianini was one of the stars of the 2015 edition of weekly Italian magazine Motosprint’s “Caschi d’Oro” awards ceremony, held on the evening of Monday, December 14th at the Checco Costa Museum, inside the Imola Circuit. The 17-year-old from Rimini, third overall and first Italian rider in the final standings of the 2015 Moto3 World Championship, was awarded with the “Casco Tricolore”.

Fausto Gresini was also attending the ceremony, marking the 40th anniversary of the event, whose first edition was held back in 1976: as team manager of the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, Fausto took to the stage to deliver the “Casco Tricolore” to Aprilia Racing manager Romano Albesiano, as a reward for the efforts made by the Italian manufacturer in his return season in MotoGP in partnership with Gresini Racing.

“I’m really proud that one of our riders has been awarded with the Casco Tricolore: Gresini Racing has always invested in the growth of young Italian talents and the results we are getting in the Moto3 World Championship are proving it. I believe that Italy is coming really close to win again the World Title in the smaller category: there are so many strong riders now, and Bastianini is one of them. Enea is still very young, but he has learned many things during this season and now I think that he can really fight for the title. With regard to MotoGP, it was nice to deliver the Casco Tricolore to Romano Albesiano: we quickly established a good cooperation with Aprilia Racing, and we were able to collect a lot of data ahead of the 2016 season, in which we will be on track with a completely new bike. For this reason we are grateful to Albesiano and all the staff at Noale for their great effort”.
