The champion Matteo Bobbi to be Brand Ambassador for 2022

DELLORTO announces its new Brand Ambassador 2022: Matteo Bobbi, car champion and well-known face of Sky Italia for his charismatic Formula 1 GP reports. An influential figure in the automotive industry, he boasts several awards and recognitions, including the “Casco d’Oro” (Golden Helmet) as the best Italian driver in 2003; he is linked to DELLORTO by a close friendship with the ownership.

Born in 1978, Matteo Bobbi began his career in go-karts, moving on to motorsports in the 2000s, achieving numerous victories and pole positions. He later became a test driver and third driver in the Minardi F1 team, actively participating in the development of the cars. In 2003, the year of the prestigious Golden Helmet, he would also be FIA GT World Champion, paired with Thomas Biaggi, at the wheel of a Ferrari 550 Maranello. He has also attended the U.S. Rolex Grand Am, raced the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans and, over the years, in the GT. He is also a Premium Sports & Safe Driving instructor for brands such as Porsche and Toyota as well as a mentor to young drivers.

Andrea Dell’Orto – Vice President of DELL’ORTO S.p.A. – speaks:
“I am proud of this partnership with Matteo Bobbi, we are linked by a long friendship and mutual esteem. Matteo is an excellent driver, a mechanical expert and an enthusiastic professional trainer. He represents DELLORTO to perfection, precisely because he embodies its values: passion for the automotive and motorsport world, sporting integrity, absolute competence and attention to the new generation – with that sense of humor that should never be missing. After all, DELLORTO is indeed famous for carburators and for its presence in the 2-wheels field, but not many people know that it is also extremely present in the automotive sector. I am sure, therefore, that the collaboration with this great champion will be more than rewarding and fruitful.”

Replies Matteo Bobbi – Former racing driver and commentator for Sky Italia:
“I thank Andrea for wanting me in this project. I am extremely proud to join the DELLORTO family, a winning team! This name has been part of my life since I was a boy playing with the carburators of my fifties, and today, as an adult, representing it as an Ambassador can only be an honor and an exciting challenge.”
