The new MotoGP entry from Trackhouse Racing has secured the surprise appointment of Davide Brivio as team principal.

Confirmed:

  • Brivio joins after a two-year stint with the Alpine Formula One team
  • The Italian has been involved in MotoGP dating back to 2001

Context:

This is a major coup for the fledgling Trackhouse Racing operation. The Italian is one of the most successful MotoGP bosses ever, having overseen five riders’ titles and four constructors’ titles.

Previous reports that Brivio had agreed a deal with Repsol Honda proved wide of the mark. Instead, he has opted for the challenge of establishing Trackhouse’s MotoGP operation.

Comment:

“It all happened very quickly in the last days with Justin asking me to help Trackhouse in the MotoGP challenge,” said Brivio.

“It’s so exciting to be a part of this new project since the beginning and I’m really looking forward to get to know Trackhouse more and see what we can bring in MotoGP from the successful vision and experience that this company has in other sports and environments.”

Justin Marks, team owner of Trackhouse Racing, added: “It’s incredible to have someone of Davide’s caliber and experience leading the Trackhouse Racing MotoGP Team. All of us at the company are humbled by the commitment he has made.

“It became apparent the moment I met Davide that he would be someone that fits perfectly in the Trackhouse culture. I know he will lead us to great things on and off the racetrack.”

Coming next:

Trackhouse Racing’s debut season gets underway with the Qatar Grand Prix on 10th March.
