Pramac Racing Team Information:

Pramac Racing made its debut in the MotoGP™ World Championship in 2002 with Honda machinery, and has since seen a whole host of top riders pass through its ranks such as Biaggi, Barros, Tamada and Capirossi. Having since changed to Ducati support they had slimmed down to becoming a single rider team, but exciting times now lie ahead as they have been further integrated into the Italian factory framework. Combining the experience of Ben Spies with the exciting potential of Andrea Iannone, they will now serve as a ‘junior’ team for the Borgo Panigale brand, hoping to push on the development of the Desmosedici for the benefit of all.
