Andrea Iannone biography:
Andrea Iannone was born in 1989 in the Italian town called Vasto, which is on the Adriatic coast, an area that is rich with a passion for motorcycle racing, so Iannone’s interest in racing came at an early age. Like many young aspiring racers in the region he started off racing pocket bikes and Minimoto and made a name for himself as a talented prospect.
After a spell in both the Spanish and Italian championships Iannone made his debut on the World Championship stage in 2005 racing in the 125cc class for the Abruzzo Racing Team. He stayed in the 125cc class until 2009 recording a best Championship finish of 7th.
In 2010 Iannone moved up to the Moto2 class, and it was here where he started to make more of a name for himself and he became a regular front-runner who thrilled fans by showing he was just as comfortable winning a race from 10th on the grid, as much as he was starting from pole. His ‘win it or bin’ style of racing won him many fans, and more than a few rivals on track. Iannone spent three seasons in Moto2 and finished in 3rd place in the Moto2 Championship in every season.
In 2013 Iannone moved up to MotoGP to race for the Energy T.I. Pramac Racing team, and solid performances in the Pramac team saw Iannone get the opportunity to move up to the factory Ducati MotoGP team in 2015. In 2016 at the Austrian MotoGP Iannone claimed Ducati’s first MotoGP victory since 2010 (when Casey Stoner last won for the team).
Iannone signed a contract with Suzuki for 2017 to become a factory Suzuki GSX-RR rider alongside Alex Rins.
