PieroRicciuti55 to make stand in appearance in 2023 Global Series finale!

The Italian, who finished as runner-up in last year’s Global Series, will replace MikiRaiko in the Gresini Racing MotoGP™ squad for this weekend’s MotoGP™ eSport finale.

There will be a last-minute change to the MotoGP™ eSport Global Series grid this weekend as PieroRicciuti55 will stand in for MikiRaiko in the Gresini Racing MotoGP™ squad.

PieroRicciuti55 was one of the stars of last year’s MotoGP™ eSport Championship, finishing 2nd in the Global Series when competing for Ducati Lenovo eSport Team.

In that campaign he proved himself to be a fiercely consistent competitor, scoring 1 win and 6 podium finishes as he eventually ended up just 15 points back of champion adriaan_26.

The Italian will stand in for MikiRaiko, unable to make Round 4 of the 2023 Global Series this weekend. The Indonesian had made his debut at the top level of the MotoGP™ eSport Championship this year, and had enjoyed solid success in the first three rounds of the year.

Until now, MikiRaiko had taken a best result of 6th, which he scored in both Round 2 and Round 3. He currently sits 7th in the Global Series standings.

The fourth Global Series round of 2023 will come from the Ubeat Live Festival in Barcelona on 11th November at 15:30 (GMT +1) Live, with former champions Trast73 (1st) and adriaan_26 (2nd) and hopefuls Jack Hammer4658 (3rd) and Cristianmm_17 (4th) all going head-to-head for the crown.
