Vittoriano Guareschi

'Vitto' Guareschi started racing in the Italian Sport Production Championship at the end of the 1980s and then switched to the Italian Supermono Championship after six years. He won Supermono first time out in 1995 and was then snapped up by Yamaha-Belgarda to race for the Italian team in the World Supersport Championship.

Guareschi finished fifth overall in 1996, and runner-up in each of the following two years, earning a Yamaha ride in its World Superbike team for 1999. The Italian scored a couple of podium finishes in 1999 and 2000, but moved back to World Supersport in 2001 when he rode a Ducati 748 for the Dienza team.

After being announced as the Ducati Desmosedici's development rider in April 2001, the Italian lost no time in completing the new bike's first shakedown test at the start of August, before Capirossi and Bayliss were freed from their existing commitments.

2005 will see another busy season for Guareschi as he continues the development work on the Ducati Desmosedici.
