The 2020 MotoGP eSport
Championship is set to kick off on 5 March with the first round of the Pro
Draft Challenge. The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team take
this opportunity to announce the renewal of their contract with double MotoGP
eSport World Champion Lorenzo Daretti,
also known by his gamer tag Trastevere73
Daretti’s showed his professionalism in 2019, competing as Yamaha’s factory e-rider. The 2017 and 2018 MotoGP eSport Champion was the man to beat, so the pressure was on. Hungry rivals were aiming for his crown, and the number-73 rider was consistently one of the front-runners throughout the season. It came down to the wire: Race 2 in Valencia, the last race of the final round. Though he came just two points short of defending his title, Trast73 could hold his head up high as the 2019 Vice-Champion.
Whilst the highlights of Daretti’s career are securing the 2017 and 2018 MotoGP eSport Championship crowns, he also highly values the experience he gained in 2019 as a Yamaha Factory e-Rider. The 20-year-old is keen to up his level for 2020 as he’s more than eager to reclaim the MotoGP eSport crown.
This year, the Italian youngster and his avatar will again have matching customised rider gear (leathers, boots, gloves and helmet), to finish off the complete Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP rider look.
Besides cheering him on in the MotoGP eSport Championship, fans can also look forward to seeing Daretti in action at various promotional activities. Moreover, being a biker himself, he will also participate in various Yamaha events on track and on road.
