Loris Capirossi to work as a MotoGP safety advisor - request made to retire his #65.
The newly retired Loris Capirossi has been appointed in an advisory role to assist with matters of safety in the MotoGP World Championship.

After a 22-year grand prix career in which the Italian started 328 races, won three titles and finished on the podium 99 times, Dorna Sports will call upon Capirossi's extensive experience and knowledge as a former rider in the 125cc, 250cc, 500cc and MotoGP categories.

Capirossi will offer the MotoGP World Championship advice on matters relating to safety, the new regulations, the competition in general and the homologation of new tracks.

In recognition of Capirossi's outstanding contribution to the sport throughout his career, Dorna has also made a request to the FIM for his number 65 be retired from use in the MotoGP World Championship.
