FRANCO MORBIDELLI YOUNG PROMISING RIDER FOR THE FUTURE OF PRAMAC D'ANTIN MOTOGP TEAM

His name is Franco Morbidelli, he will be 12 years-old in December. He's part of a new project of Pramac D'Antin MotoGP Team. Paolo Campinoti and Luis d'Antin decided to invest on him for the future. The agreement between the parts has been reached today at Valencia, where is taking place the last round of the 2006 MotoGP World Championship. The young promising rider will be managed with the aim of bringing him to the premier-class of the World Championship. Morbidelli, born in Rome but living in Babbucce (Province of Pesaro, Italy), is coming from the races of minibikes. In 2005, he won the "Assoluti d'Italia", the selections of the Regional Championship and he was Italian Vice-Champion in the Junior B class. He made some practice with the 125GP during the 2006 season and is a really promising rider.

FRANCO MORBIDELLI: "I'm very happy, until now, I've raced with the minibikes and it is great to have an opportunity as this one. I've been practising with the 125GP from this year, I will go on and I would really like to reach the World Championship. Until now, everything has gone in the right way, and I hope they will believe in me for a long time. I will do my best to reach our aims".

PAOLO CAMPINOTI (CEO PRAMAC Group): "We have decided to raise a young Italian rider to make him reach the World Championship, following him from the beginning. With this new project, our aim is to make an investment in the long term. This young champion is a really promising rider and we believe very much in his possibilities".
