Alex de Angelis

Italian rider, Alex de Angelis, began his Grand Prix career at the age of 16. In his first season of the 125cc class, Alex proved his talent and agility as a rider and won the 2000 Rookie of the Year award. After several mediocre years in the 125's, he entered the realm of the Quarter Liters in 2004. His first year found him finishing fifth, and then seventh his second season.

De Angelis finished 2006 with his first Grand Prix victory, and a total of 11 podiums. Earning a reputation as a hot-headed rider, Alex began to focus on consistency for the 2007 season. His focus paid off as he found himself finishing in the top four of the first 10 races, and crashed out only once all year. The Championship was still just out of reach as he finished third for the year behind Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.

Alex made the move to MotoGP in 2008, backed by Gresini. His inaugural year showed little improvement over his 2006 season with the 250's as he reverted to his former hot-headed riding style, taking too many risks. 2009 found Alex still in the Honda camp, riding for San Carlo Honda Gresini, with hopes that his extreme talent could overcome his risky riding habits and prove that he is indeed a top rider. De Angelis earned his first MotoGP podium, second in Indianapolis, and eighth place in the final standings.

Although finishing a respectable 8th in the 2009 World Championship, Alex was not resigned by Grisini for 2010, but his vast improvement earned him a seat with Scot Racing in Moto2 for 2010, alongside Niccolò Canepa. De Angelis produced mixed results with Gresini in the form of 2 podium finished, sub-top 20's and more than several DNF's. He still managed to finish 14th overall at the end of the season. In 2011, he will be the sole representative of JIR Racing in the Moto2 class.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Alex de Angelis rides to capture his first World Championship title.
