Axel Bassani is now one of the certainties of the Superbike World Championship. If last year we could in fact speak of a revelation, the consistency of performances of the rider from Bergamo and his team makes him a fixed presence in the top positions, often ahead of official bikes.

This despite the fact that Axel is the standard bearer of a private team that certainly cannot compete in terms of means and budget with the teams of the manufacturers. However, the skill of the group and the rider allowed them to be awarded Best Independent Team and Best Independent Rider in 2022.

As often happens Team Motocorsa must rely on a large number of investors to reach the overall budget necessary to face an entire season in the top series derivative category. This is a usual situation when you cannot count on a generous main sponsor. Motocorsa was born from the experience of a former rider, Lorenzo Mauri: in addition to the Ducati dealer-workshop, this reality has for years incorporated a racing department which has gradually arrived on the world stage. As one might expect, numerous names come from the same area of ​​origin as the team, Lurago d'Erba.
