Dalla Porta joins Bastianini at Leopard in 2018

All-Italian line up for the Championship winning squad next season

2016 FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ Junior World Champion Lorenzo Dalla Porta will be lining up in Leopard colours next season as he joins the team to ride alongside compatriot and Moto3™ race winner Enea Bastianini. It will be the second full season in the World Championship for Dalla Porta, who is a points scorer and top ten finisher already.

Miodrag Kotur, COO Leopard Racing: "We are delighted to announce the second rider for next season: Lorenzo is a very good driver, he has been a Champion in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 Championship in 2016 right against our team and his talent has not gone unnoticed. We are sure he will do well and will be immediately competitive. I also take this opportunity to thank Joan and Livio for the work they have done this season and wish him the best for their future."

Lorenzo Dalla Porta: "I'm happy to have signed up for the Leopard Racing Team. As a former adversary, I have always had a great appreciation for their skills as a team and I feel I can remain at the top of the category. I will do my best and I hope to be able to repay the confidence they have put in me by taking great results on their behalf."
