MotoGP, OFFICIAL. Capirossi now part of Race Direction

Loris will take the place of Javier Alonso as the Dorna representative, alongside Webb and Uncini


The MotoGP Permanent Bureau has made its decision and it will be Loris Capirossi who takes the place of Javier Alonso in Race Direction as the Dorna representative. Loris, already a safety consultant for the championship, was selected by FIM President Vito Ippolito and Dorna chief Carmelo Ezpeleta.

After Alonso's departure in November, we had already revealed that Capirossi would be the most likely replacement and now the appointment has been confirmed. Loris will therefore be part of the 'triumvirate’ in the control room, alongside Race Director Mike Webb and FIM representative and safety manager Franco Uncini.
