This is the story of two men, with a birthday that is only one day different.

On 23 January 1961, Fausto Gresini, founder of Gresini Racing in 1997, was born in Imola.

Claudio Tondini, father of Battipav since 1982, was born on January 24, 1952.

The paths of these characters cross at the end of 2021, but thanks to different main characters:

Nadia Padovani, wife of Fausto Gresini and Stefano Tondini, son of Claudio today both at the head of the projects started respectively by her husband and his father.


The collaboration between the two companies was born as in the most beautiful fairy tales.

Love, family, the desire to believe always in something and the happy ending after so many difficulties are the shared values ​​and elements that bring Battipav to MotoGP today.

If you are reading this blog, perhaps you already know the history of Battipav, but you can learn more here



Roaring engines together with electric saws and manual tile cutters.

The pantone 2122 of the Team Gresini, the color of the sky and of the breath, which meets our orange, a symbol of professionalism and sincere energy.

The intertwining and similarities between the two worlds continue, especially if we start talking about Made in Italy.

The Gresini in Faenza, in fact, will bring two Italian riders (one from Romagna and one from Rome) into the premier class on two Ducati Desmosedici from Borgo Panigale (Bologna), while Battipav exports its products studied, designed and produced internally (at Cotignola – Ravenna) to more than 90 countries around the world. 

In both cases, trust in young people and family unity are also factors that match and are of great strength to carry forward big and boundless dreams.



But you will ask us “where do we see the goals of collaboration”? 

For us, being present and visible in MotoGP is really essential to expand the knowledge of the brand in the countries that will be affected by the race dates (see calendar) and beyond.

Our logo will be present in the front wheel disc guard
