We also aim to provide those riders with the best design and protection in the paddock, but above all, a comprehensive program of service and support. To assure riders are kept safe and comfortable, and look the part, too. Ready for the task at hand. To perform to the best of their abilities.
From MotoGP to MotoAmerica, we are present at the top international and national races in the world; empowering younger riders, as well as more experienced ones. What do we all have in common? Passion. We believe in each other’s goals, and we stand behind each other. Here are our #revitriders.
If you kick off your MotoGP rookie season with eleven steady finishes in the points – including a hugely impressive fourth in Le Mans – you’re deserving of that “Rookie of the Year” title. Even when Augusto was the only rookie on the grid… He showed grit and earned himself a fully deserved new contract at GasGas Factory Racing to extend his learning curve into 2024.
It’s going to be a long season, but with the all-new carbon chassis coming into play, his team is looking to make a big step forward. A step we expect Augusto will make the most of, proving he was, by no means, promoted into the premier GP class by accident!
A top-three finish was sadly just outside of reach for Jake, although he did have his best Grand Prix season so far. The Briton equaled his five-podium tally of 2022, but also went all out to claim his first-ever GP win – at our home track in Assen. That win on REV’IT! home soil made it just that much more special. This was then followed by his second win in Barcelona; cementing himself as a championship contender once and for all. In an already emotional year - where he became a father to baby Summer - and felt the pressure of fighting at the front, Jake continued to roll with the punches.
Now, he has set his sights firmly on 2024. With the arrival of the new Pirellis and the WP suspension at the Pierer group teams, Jake will once again be in the fight to try and become the first British rider to secure the intermediate world title in over half a century.
In only his first full-time season in Moto2 in 2023, Alonso carried on where he left off in 2022. With blinding pace and bold moves across the board, the Spaniard was intent on success – intent that was rewarded. Aboard the Boscoscuro machine, he claimed pole twice (ARG and NED) and came away with five podiums, including a hard-fought second place in incredibly iffy conditions in Argentina.
Finishing eighth in the final standings after a season-finale third, Alonso went on to shatter the Valenica all-time lap record in the first Pirelli Moto2 test on Monday after the race. That’s how you sign off a season in style – ready for the next. And so are we!
Zonta is ready to turn it up in 2024. The Dutch-born rider is still only 18 years old, but with a new contract with his compatriots at Fieten Olie Racing for 2024 and 2025, there’s faith in his ability to grow and show his potential in the Moto2. Especially after securing a surprise front-row start on a wet Silverstone track, and two well-deserved points finishes in sixth (IND) and nineth (JPN), the young man from Breda, The Netherlands, is showing steady progress.
After an unconventional debut in Moto2 – without touching the step-up Moto3 class – back in 2022, he was given time to learn. Next season is his time to move and time to put his elbow on the deck and his front wheel in front of the competition.
A favorite for the 2023 Moto3 title from lights out in Portimão, Ayumu took to the podium more than anyone else last season. In the end, he lost the championship title (he finished second) but held on to the fan’s respect after a tough battle under the Qatari floodlights. To then finally take it up one notch in the Valencia finale – taking that illustrious first win of the season the eve of his departure for Moto2.
Joining the Yamaha family in the Correos Prepago Yamaha VR46 team in Moto2 in 2024, the Japanese rider will debut aboard a Kalex machine. He will have to adapt to the fiercely competitive intermediate class. It will certainly be a challenge, but not one Ayumu will turn away from – we know that much.
After an astonishing Rookie of the Year-winning season in Moto3 in 2022, Diogo carried on where he left off. As the 2023 Moto3 season kicked off in Portimão and continued in Argentina, he came away with third and second respectively. Results that put the Brazilian firmly in the contention for a Moto2 ride for 2024; ultimately signing to the ItalTrans Racing team to contend the intermediate class next year.
Fresh off the news of those exciting new prospects, Diogo went on to earn his second-ever Pole Position. When he cashed in on it in Sunday’s race, he wrote himself into the history books, becoming the first Brazilian lightweight-class winner in the history of the Grand Prix. Considering Diogo’s fighting spirit, we’re already looking forward to seeing him on the Kalex in Moto2!
Sure, we had high expectations of Collin. Still, not even we expected him to take the first Dutch Pole Position (AUT) since Jurgen van den Goorbergh – you know, Zonta’s dad – back in 1999. Only to secure an incredible rookie podium at the Thai GP and then go on and win the Malaysian Grand Prix outright. Not since the 1990 Czechoslovak 125cc race had a Dutchman won a GP. And to win as a Dutch Rookie will take you back another 18 years…
We already knew Collin was something special, but the youngster from Staphorst, The Netherlands, is proving to be the real deal and we simply cannot wait to see what he can do aboard the same Husqvarna Moto3 machine in 2024.
For 2024, we’re welcoming Stefano Nepa as a fresh addition to the REV’IT! Racing family. The 22-year-old Italian arrived on the Moto3 scene of the World Championship full-time in 2020. With a few semi-full-time seasons before that, Stefano combined rider duties in both the Spanish CEV Moto3 championship and the CIV Moto3 championships in Italy – even winning the Pre-Moto3 title back in 2014.
Since then, Stefano has landed plenty of competitive rides. His efforts were rewarded with a handfull of near podiums over the seasons, learning as he goes. Now for the coming season, Stefano truly moves into the first-rider position, and he will be out to prove a point. And as a #revitrider we’re sure he will get to show his prowess.
Things are set to change for Álvaro in WorldSBK. He himself has dubbed the new regulations for combined weight for rider and machine the “Anti-Álvaro rule.” It means the back-to-back WorldSBK Champion is fighting an uphill battle as he’s one of the lightest riders on the grid. Though, it will certainly play a part in the Ducati rider’s season ahead.
We’re expecting Álvaro will come out swinging regardless. Winning 27 out of this season’s 36 races – that’s an astonishing 75% percent average – doesn’t come easy and with form like that, this rule certainly shouldn’t curtail Álvaro’s shot at securing a shot at a rare third Superbike World Championship title.
After a stage-winning Dakar campaign and MotoAmerica Superbike runner-up season in 2022 – plus a Suzuki MotoGP substitution job in MotoGP – 2023 was not much different for Danilo. He was all over the place again as the GPs called once more for a Ducati MotoGP Factory replacement ride in Le Mans on top of his day job of racing the Barni Racing Panigale V4R in WorldSBK.
The Italian handily secured steady points finishes on his debut season in the production-bike based World Championship, with a pair of third place finishes at Donington (GBR) and Most (CZE) respectively. For Race-2 in the Czech Republic ,“The Handyman,” did one better as he held off none other than eight-time World Champ, Rea, to take second place! We weren’t expecting Danilo to fight right at the front right away, but – understandably – we are now for next year. Roll on 2024!
We’re looking forward to this season and following the progress of all of our riders. That said, don’t forget to follow our REV’IT Racing Instagram account, so you’ll never miss an update on races, riders, and anything else speed related.
