18 August 2023 - Lorenzo Savadori will continue in his role as Aprilia Racing test rider in 2024. Engaged during this weekend in his third wildcard of the season at the Red Bull Ring, in Austria, the Italian rider will continue his development work on the RS-GP both following the test programme and taking advantage of the three races allowed by the regulations.
A relationship, the one between Aprilia and Lorenzo Savadori, which began in 2015 with victory in the FIM Superstock 1000 riding the RSV4 and then continued in World Superbike. Since 2019 Lorenzo has been an integral part of the MotoGP project, contributing to the steady growth of the RS-GP which has now become a stable protagonist among the prototypes.
Testing and wild-card races, during which Savadori and the Aprilia Racing Test Team have often brought innovative solutions to the track, play a fundamental role in modern MotoGP, which is increasingly competitive and demanding.
LORENZO SAVADORI: “Aprilia Racing is now a second family for me: we have been together since 2015 and I am very happy to continue this wonderful collaboration. The work I'm doing together with all the guys in the Test Team makes me happy and it's a source of pride for me to contribute to taking Aprilias to the top of MotoGP, as happened at Silverstone, where there were three RS-GP bikes fighting for the win.
Today's MotoGP is hyper-competitive, and you have to try to go further in the development of every little detail and that is also why the job of the Test Rider has become more and more crucial. I am grateful to Aprilia for the trust they put in me for such a delicate role, although clearly every rider's dream is still to return to full-time racing, to be able to show their potential.”
