34 Lorenzo Baldassarri


Date of Birth


After one season in WorldSSP where he was a regular podium finisher and race winner, Italian rider Lorenzo Baldassarri makes the step up to WorldSBK for 2023 with the GMT94 Yamaha team. It will also be the first time for the team in WorldSBK, although they have experience of ‘big bikes’ from their time in Endurance, and both GMT94 and Baldassarri will be aiming to make an impact on the Championship.

Baldassarri claimed 16 podiums, including four wins, in 24 races on his way to second place in the Championship last year, his rookie season in WorldSSP, as well as taking two pole positions and four fastest laps.
