The Sic58 Squadra Corse team will line up two riders in the MotoE World Championship 2023. The team of Paolo Simoncelli will have two Ducatis to aim for the top positions in the MotoGP electric class.
In 2023 the Sic58 Squadra Corse will have two riders on the starting grid of the MotoE World Championship: Kevin Manfredi and Kevin Zannoni. The first was announced a few weeks ago: the rider from La Spezia will race his second season in the electric class of the MotoGP, after his debut in 2022 with the Octo Pramac MotoE team. Manfredi finished his first season in MotoE in twelfth position in the general standings. The second bike of the Sic58 team will be of Kevin Zannoni, who will thus race in his third season in MotoE, the second with Paolo Simoncelli's team. Zannoni had raced his debut season with the LCR team finishing in twelfth place, while last year, with the Sic58 Squadra Corse, he finished tenth.
The growth of the Sic58 team in MotoE was made possible by the forfeit of the Ajo MotoE team, who has decided to end its experience with the MotoGP electric class in 2022 and concentrate on the Moto2 and Moto3 teams. In this way, from 2023, all nine teams at the start of the MotoE will have two riders.
The 2023 season of the MotoE will begin in March with the first winter test at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, to continue in Barcelona for the second test session before the official start of the season at Le Mans, from 12 to 14 May.
