Formula E, Brembo entered in Season five, equipping all the 22 full-electric cars of the new generation - Gen2 - with an entire bespoke braking system supplied through the constructor Spark Racing Technology. For the
MotoE, the 2019 was the debut year, with Brembo on board all the 18 Energica’s Ego Corsa mount the company’s entire braking system, together with the wheels produced by Marchesini, a partner brand of the Brembo Group, that in 2019 supplied also 7 on 11 MotoGP teams.

28 Riders World Championships and 32 Constructors World Championships, obtained in over 30 years of participation.
