The American MotoGP team, Trackhouse, has made a major announcement by signing Davide Brivio as their ‘Main Team’ with immediate effect. Brivio, who was the champion with Suzuki and Joan Mir in 2020, is expected to join the team for the next test in Qatar on February 19th. Brivio previously worked with Yamaha as the head of Valentino Rossi’s team and played a key role in Rossi’s signing with the Japanese firm. He later joined F1 in 2021 with Alpine but had a secondary role in a team that was in constant turmoil, which led to Fernando Alonso leaving for Aston Martin.
Despite being linked with other teams, Brivio has now joined Trackhouse, just a few months after Justin Marks became the owner of the team. Marks, a former NASCAR driver and team owner, convinced Brivio to join with the help of Massimo Rivola, the CEO of Aprilia Racing. Wilco Zeelenberg will continue as the team leader. Brivio expressed his satisfaction with the deal, stating that he is excited to be part of the new project and is looking forward to bringing his successful vision and experience to the MotoGP team.
Marks also shared his excitement about having Brivio lead the Trackhouse Racing MotoGP team, stating that Brivio’s caliber and experience make him a perfect fit for the team’s culture. He believes that Brivio will lead the team to great things on and off the track.
The announcement has created a buzz in the MotoGP world, as Trackhouse has made its intentions clear in the World Championship. With Brivio’s leadership and experience, the team is expected to make a strong impact in the upcoming season. The team is now gearing up for the next test and is looking forward to supporting their talented drivers, Miguel and Raúl, as they prepare to compete. The team is excited to start working with Brivio and is looking forward to the new season.
