2011 Red Bull Rookies Champion Lorenzo Baldassarri made his Moto3 ™ World Championship debut with the Gresini Team in 2013. His height and physique forced him to switch immediately to a larger Moto2 ™ bike with the same team in 2014.
It was a difficult year, but in 2015 Baldassarri conquered the first podium in Australia with Forward Racing, finishing the Championship in ninth place.
He remained for another season with Forward Racing and took his first win at home GP in Misano.
After a more difficult year, in 2018 he joined the Pons HP40 team and scored five podiums, including the victory in Jerez, the second victory of his career.
Baldassarri, known as Balda, starts 2019 with three wins in the first four races and remains at the top of the general classification until the sixth race. He finished the Moto2 ™ World Championship in seventh place.
2020 season has been a weird crazy season for everyone, Lorenzo started very well in Qatar with the podium then some difficulties arrived, but he didn’t give up and managed to rebuild the feeling finishing the season with rather positive results.
In 2021 Balda raced with the Forward Racing team colors on an MV AGUSTA. A season marked by an injury that did not allow him to express his full potential.
Now it is time for Lorenzo to begin a new adventure in WorldSSP, together with the team that has won the title in two of the last three seasons. A high level structure, ready to aim high in a category that has been completely renewed compared to the past.
