2019 ESBK Superbike Junior champion Unai Orradre made his FIM Supersport 300 World Championship Wildcard debut in 2019, and in 2020 the Spanish youngster stepped up to contest his first full season with the Yamaha MS Racing WorldSSP300 Supported Team.
That year, the then 16-year-old became the youngest-ever winner in the WorldSSP300 championship, after storming to a dominant victory in the opening race of the season at Jerez. Orradre picked up two further podium finishes, taking second at Portimao and third at Aragón on his way to seventh in the riders' standings.
His performances and potential earned him another year as part of the bLU cRU program in the class, alongside Bahattin Sofuoglu. After a podium in the opener, a period of bad luck dropped Orradre from the title battle, but his pace was clear and he was promoted to WorldSSP from Magny-Cours.
The 17-year-old was quick to adapt to the championship, and he went on to take a best result of 11th at the Indonesia finale. Orradre will remain with the Yamaha MS Racing team for a full season in 2022, where he's expected to be fighting for regular top 10 finishes.
