Claudio Calabresi will replace Francesco Guidotti as Team Manager for Pramac Racing.
Claudio was chosen to lead the Team because of his top-notch managerial experience, earned throughout a career in global energy companies, lastly as Executive Vice President Commercial Director of Eni Refining and Marketing, and his great passion for motorcycling.
The latter led him to be a regular presence on the paddocks of the world motorcycling championship for the last two decades; he has also been Octo Pramac MotoE’s Team Manager since the project’s inception.
Claudio will avail himself of Fonsi Nieto’s support, who will step up from being the riders’ coach to the role of Sports Director.
Claudio’s growth within our team is the testimony of the esteem and confidence I have in him, and I am convinced that after 3 seasons as Team Manager in MotoE he will be up to this new and important challenge.
We can’t wait to start this new adventure together, certain that Pramac Racing will be one of the top teams in the MotoGP and that next season will bring great satisfaction.
The close collaboration with Fonsi will also guarantee us solid skills and experience from a sporting point of view.
I am very proud that Paolo Campinoti thought of me for this position. We’ve been working together on different projects for several years and developed a strong relationship of respect and friendship.
Now a new chapter opens for me, where curiosity, passion and experience will be at full disposal of the team, with the greatest commitment to remain one of the most competitive teams in MotoGP.
