MotoGP: Lorenzo Savadori replaces Bradley Smith in Aprilia

Three rounds remain in the 2020 MotoGP world championship season and Aprilia will be completing it with Lorenzo Savadori, one of the manufacturer’s test riders. The 27-year-old Italian will be competing on the Aprilia RS-GP together with the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini main rider, Aleix Espargaro.

Why Savadori? He collected six wins and two podiums in the 2020 CIV premier category, the Italian was crowned as the Italian SBK Champion on board his Aprilia RSV4 prepped by the Nuova M2 Racing Team. This result might just be his ticket into the MotoGP grid full-time if he’s able to provide some spectacular results in the last three races of the season.

According to Lorenzo Savadori, “To say I’m happy would be an understatement and I wish to thank Aprilia Racing straight away for this great opportunity. I will be arriving prepared for the event, thanks both to the work done during the tests on the RS-GP and to the CIV season that just ended.”

“It was a challenging Championship that demanded top form and maximum concentration from me. Now I need to reorganise my thoughts, glean from the kilometres I’ve ridden astride the RS-GP and make sure I’m ready and focused for the first practice session,” added the Italian.
