2014 Moto2™ World Champion Tito Rabat makes the move into WorldSBK for the 2021 season after five years competing in MotoGP™. The Spaniard brings a wealth of experience to the Barni Racing Team and he will be hoping to utilise this as he searches for podiums throughout the 2021 season.
Rabat first made his name on the world stage in 2007 with his first podium in the 125cc World Championship. A three-year podium drought followed but he was soon back on the rostrum in 2010, before making the move into Moto2™ and claiming a podium in his debut season. Rabat took podiums in every season he raced in the category with his first win coming in 2013. 2014 would prove to be Rabat’s year in Moto2™ as he claimed seven wins and 14 podiums on his way to the title with 346 points; at the time, the highest points total in Moto2™. After attempting to defend his title in 2015, Rabat moved into MotoGP™ for 2016 and started 77 races, claiming a best finish of seventh place.
His title-winning credentials are there for all to see following his record-breaking Moto2™ campaign and his experience is something Rabat will hope to use to lift Barni Racing up the grid throughout 2021.
