Valentino Rossi’s VR46 MotoGP Journey
Valentino Rossi’s outfit has been a presence in the MotoGP paddock for almost a decade. Starting out in Moto3 in 2014, Rossi expanded into Moto2 in 2017. However, in 2022, VR46 made a significant move by closing down its Moto2 and Moto3 teams to step up to MotoGP as a Ducati satellite squad.
VR46’s MotoGP Ambitions
The VR46 team, now competing in the premier class, is fielding two talented riders – Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi. This decision to prioritize MotoGP shows VR46’s ambitions and dedication to becoming a top-tier competitor in the race track world.
It is worth noting that despite an offer from Pramac to ride a factory bike next year, Bezzecchi elected to remain with VR46. This decision showcases Bezzecchi’s loyalty to the team and their shared vision for success in MotoGP.
The Road to Success
Over the years, Valentino Rossi’s outfit has proven itself as a force to be reckoned with in the MotoGP paddock. The team’s journey from Moto3 to Moto2 and now to MotoGP highlights their growth and determination to excel in the racing world.
The step up to MotoGP as a Ducati satellite squad opens up new opportunities for VR46. As they compete alongside established teams and riders, Marini and Bezzecchi have the chance to showcase their talent and make a mark in the premier class.
Academy Reserves Running Low
With the transition to MotoGP, VR46 now faces the challenge of replenishing their academy reserves. The team’s academy has been instrumental in nurturing young talent, and VR46 is open to snaring top MotoGP riders to join their ranks.
The decision to expand their talent pool not only strengthens the team but also ensures a sustainable future for VR46 in the MotoGP paddock. As they continue to invest in the development of promising riders, VR46 aims to maintain their presence as a competitive and influential force in the racing world.
