Heading into his fourth year in the FIM Supersport World Championship, Federico Caricasulo will be one to keep an eye on in 2019, as he confirmed himself as one of the tough fighters in the class last season.
The 22-year-old started his racing career when he was still nine years old competing in the Minimoto Championship in Italy. In 2007 he was selected to compete with Honda Italia in the Italian Championship CiV and here he continued until becoming 2014 Italian Supersport Champion.
Caricasulo made his debut in the WorldSBK paddock the following year, when he raced in the STK600 Championship taking different podium finishes and a victory the same year.
Born in Ravenna, the Italian moved then to WorldSSP in 2016 continuing to impress with his fast progression. His aim to improve quickly brought him to take his first podium already at the opening round at Phillip Island. A pole and the 9th position overall in the standings completed the first successful year of the Italian raising star in the class. Caricasulo made the switch then to GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team for 2017, year that welcomed two wins and four podiums.
Making the switch now to the Bardahl Team, Caricasulo will continue to fight for the WoldSSP title in 2019.
