Luca Marini



Among the most promising motorcycle riders to have emerged from the VR46 Riders Academy, which is directed by his brother Valentino Rossi, Luca Marini, born in Urbino on 10 August 1997, was impatient to display his potential on the big World Motorcycle Championship stage.


After spending a long time in youth championship circuits, with a few appearances as a wild-card, Marini became a permanent feature of the World Motorcycle Championship during the 2016 season, signed up by the Forward Racing Team to race in the Moto2 World Championship. In the two seasons with the Italian-Swiss outfit, Marini showed a steady growth in his performance with more and more frequent appearances in the top 10. At the end of 2017 he completed the switch to the Sky Racing Team VR46 to reach his full potential in the ‘Middle Class’.
