Fausto Gresini didn’t make it: © www.de24.news The  former Italian motorcycle racer died on Tuesday one month after his 60th birthday as a result of a corona infection. Gresini was admitted to the Maggiore hospital in Bologna at the end of December, and two months later he lost the fight against the insidious virus. He leaves behind a wife and three sons.

Gresini was a well-known man in the Italian motorsport scene. As a racing driver, he won the world championship title in the 125 cc class in 1985 and 1987 and also set a number of records there, such as eleven consecutive racing victories.

After that, the Imolese was successful as the owner and team boss of the Gresini Racing team, which is represented in all classes – including MotoGP, the premier class of motorcycle racing, and MotoE. © www.de24.news

 The  team’s history has been overshadowed by two fatal accidents in the MotoGP class. Daijiro Kato had a fatal accident at the 2003 Japanese Grand Prix and Marco Simoncelli was killed in a racing accident at the 2011 Japanese Grand Prix.
