Martin and Di Giannantonio remain at Gresini for 2018

Two podium finishers return next season, and Del Conca renew as title sponsor

Jorge Martin and Fabio Di Giannantonio will remain with Del Conca Gresini Moto3 in 2018, with both confirmed to be staying with the lightweight class squad next season – and Del Conca returning as title sponsor.

Jorge Martin: “I’m very happy to stay within the Gresini family next year. I feel at home here and I’ve had that feeling since the first tests this season. We have a really competitive package and next season we’ll be aiming for the Championship. That was the goal this year but with the injuries and some things happening that were unexpected, it wasn’t possible. I want to thank Fausto for having given me this opportunity, and Del Conca our title sponsor, who will continue to support us next season.”

Fabio Di Giannantonio: “I’m really happy to continue this journey together which started a year and a half ago, and to be doing so with this amazing team is priceless! The goal is to improve year after year and race after race. 2018 will be my third year in the series and the goal will be to finish the season in the top 3. I would like to thank everyone from Fausto to our fans and especially our sponsors for the continuing support.”

Fausto Gresini, Team Manager: “I’m happy to confirm that the whole squad will continue. It is great to be able to count on two such great riders like Jorge and Fabio. Both have grown immensely since joining the team and we have had a real chance to be in contention at the front in every race. This is a team that always wants to improve, and that’s why I would like to thank everyone, from the riders, the crew chiefs, all the staff working for us and everyone who believes in our mission. And of course a special thanks goes to the Mularoni family, who have showed so much passion and involvement with our team.”
