Mattia Casadei


Born on 2 July 1999 in Rimini, Italy

2023 FIM MotoE World Champion


Racing history was made this year with the staging of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship, the first-ever full circuit racing FIM World Championship for electric motorcycles. 

Contested over the eight European rounds running from Le Mans to Misano and stretching over four months from mid-May to mid-September, the series featured Ducati as the new sole manufacturer and was contested by nine two-rider teams. 

After eight rounds and sixteen eight-lap races it was Italy’s Mattia Casadei who etched his name into the record books. 

The twenty-four-year-old was among the hotly tipped front runners this season and the action was, dare we say it, electric with all the excitement fans expect from the MotoGP™ series with racing that fully justified the elevation of MotoE™ from World Cup status. 

Following pre-season testing in Jerez and Barcelona, the championship got under way at the iconic Le Mans. A no-score in the very first race was hardly a great start for Casadei and he endured another pointless performance in the second race at round two at the Autodromo Internazionale des Mugello in Italy. 

Having got all his bad luck out of the way at the opening two rounds, Casadei began to pile on the points through rounds in Germany and the Netherlands and when yet more history was made with the MotoE™ class debut at Silverstone in Great Britain he took his first race win of the campaign. 

With his rivals beginning to drop off the pace, Casadei rode the wave of his great form to a two-race maximum at Austria’s Red Bull Ring before running two-one in Catalunya to take the series lead. 

With the championship almost within his grasp, Casadei headed to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli – just twenty kilometres from his home in Rimini – where victory in the first race was good enough to claim the crown.
