“I’m preparing my best for my home race. I’m really looking forward to racing.” Lorenzo Dalla Porta announced it to the fans, accompanying a video posted on his Instagram account in which the rider from Montemurlo is seen working hard in the gym. What is the “home race” he’s referring to? This is obviously the Italian Grand Prix, which will start as usual at the Mugello circuit on 11 June. A track on which the person concerned has never won in the World Championship, but in 2019 (the year in which he became world champion in Moto3) he obtained a second place at the end of a race conducted at his best. The balance in moto two is leaner: Lorenzo was forced to retire both in 2021 and in 2022, when he was racing for Team Italtrans. Also for this reason the next appointment will necessarily have to be the turning point: perhaps thanks to a bike that has not been very competitive up to now (also in the light of the far from excellent results obtained by teammate Bo Bendsneyder) the twenty-five year old athlete was unable to give the maximum and did not bring home even one point in the standings. The best result of the season remains the nineteenth place obtained in Portugal two months ago, followed by the twenty-first place grabbed in France in the last round. Too little, for a rider of his talent. Why can the “change of pace” arrive in June? Because after Mugello, the two-wheeled circus will land on another track favorable to Dalla Porta, given that in Germany he conquered the second of his five career victories in the World Championship four years ago. One more reason to remove the “0” from the “points won” box in the Moto2 2023 riders’ championship as soon as possible. And to plan the return.
