Le0pard Racing takes both Moto3 Team and Rider world championship titles with unbeatable leads
Le0pard Racing secured its 2019 Moto3 world champion team title at the Japanese Grand Prix, which took place between the 18th and 20th October. This victory was followed a week later by Lorenzo Dalla Porta securing the title of 2019 Moto3 world champion with a sensational win at the Australian Grand Prix. The season is not over yet, but these leads are now unassailable.
ANONIMO, Official Partner of Le0pard Racing, has supported the racing stable since 2015. The watch brand created a special piece in tribute to the team: the NAUTILO Le0pard, in a limited edition of 97 pieces. After winning two Moto3 victories in 2016 and 2017, 2019 has seen Le0pard Racing return to the top of the podium. This season has been marked by team work, perseverance and passion, much like Le0pard Racing itself. They say that hard work always pays off; and this proves it!
The Japanese Grand Prix was a perfect illustration of the spirit that drives the team. The morning turned into a complete nightmare as Lorenzo Dalla Porta's bike suffered technical issues, preventing the rider from completing his warm-up. The whole team, galvanised and driven by the desire to get back on track, came together to fix the bike. Their efforts clearly paid off, with Dalla Porta taking victory in spite of these challenges. The points won by the team's two riders – Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Marcos Ramirez – ensured that Le0pard Racing secured victory in the team world championship with 3 Grand Prix races still left to complete.
This determination and team spirit were once again in evidence at the Australian Grand Prix. Despite his sixth place on the starting grid, Lorenzo Dalla Porta picked off his competitors one by one to reach the front of the race. He was quick, determined and focused, shutting out any rivals attempting to overtake him. This victory makes him the 2019 Moto3 World Champion!
Two victories born of mutual support, perseverance and passion!
