Italy’s Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Luca Marini, the younger step-brother of nine-time title winner Valentino Rossi, will make his World Championship debut in Moto3™ this year as a wildcard for Twelve Racing at Misano.

‘On 10 August, Marini will celebrate his 16th birthday (reaching the minimum participation age for Moto3) and receive a great gift, appearing as a wild card rider in the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano, held on 15 September,’ the article reads.

For the record, Marini’s famous sibling made his debut on the world championship scene at the age of 17, finishing sixth in the 1996 125cc Grand Prix of Malaysia.
