Having been the youngest rider on the grid in 2021, Axel Bassani aims to build on his sole podium from what was a sensational rookie season. Having competed in WorldSSP in 2016, 2017 and 2020 and now with a year of WorldSBK under his belt, Bassani will be hoping his experience puts him in good stead as he remains Motocorsa Racing for 2022.
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?
