Axel Bassani made an instant impact in WorldSBK having claimed a podium finish for the Independent Motocorsa Racing outfit in 2021, his rookie season. He remained with the team for a second year in 2022 and took two more podiums while he was also a common sight at the front of the field, regularly battling for podium positions. For 2023, he will have a third season with Motocorsa Racing with his first race win surely the aim for Bassani.
Taking on the European Superstock 600 championship in 2015, he took a podium out of two races he competed in. Stepping into the WorldSSP championship in 2016, Bassani won the European Supersport Cup in the final round at Jerez with San Carlo Team Italia. 2017 welcomed the then-18-year-old into the Moto2™ World Championship for four races and WorldSSP for two races, where he took two credible points scoring finishes.
2021 was a memorable season for him, having bagged a top six at home at Misano in June as a breakthrough ride before going on to lead a race in Barcelona, eventually finishing second to claim an emotional first podium of his WorldSBK career. Battling for victory on numerous occasions since, Axel Bassani is unequivocally one of the most exciting prospects in WorldSBK; a second season with Motocorsa beckons, but does victory?
