The young Italian secured the World Championship at Phillip Island, after crossing the finish line first and has won again at the Malaysian Grand Prix over the weekend.

Dalla Porta is Italy’s first lightweight champion in 15 years.

The last Italian to take the lightweight title was Andrea Dovizioso in 2004, when he won the 125cc championship.

From 2012, Moto3 replaced the 125cc GP category and Dalla Porta is the first Italian to be crowned a Moto3 World Champion.

The 22-year-old Italian was presented with his first match point of the season at Phillip Island with a 47-point lead over Aron Canet and he went in for the ace.

In a dramatic opener to the Australian GP, Dalla Porta’s biggest threat Canet crashed on just the third lap of the race.

It was clear that Dalla Porta’s hopes of becoming World Champion were on the horizon.

All he had to do was finish in a position no lower than 12th.

This leeway did not stop him from hunting for first place and he continued to push hard at the front of the pack.

It was a risky manoeuvre which highlighted Dalla Porta’s passionate riding skills, as he went for the ultimate win rather than settling for calculated points.

But riders Romano Fenati, Tatsuki Suzuki, Albert Arenas and John McPhee did not let Dalla Porta off lightly as they battled in the lead group for first position early in the race. 

It was a gripping final lap.

Dalla Porta was set to become World Champion but he wanted to do it by crossing the finish line first.

He led into the last lap, but Suzuki soon pounced and by Turn Four, the young Japanese was at the front.

The checkered line was not far off and with just four corners left to make his move, Dalla Porta took the lead back.

But he wasn’t in the clear as the pack hunted him down the straight.

In incredible fashion, Dalla Porta crossed the line first to not only win his first Australian GP but his first Moto3 world title in an ending fit for a fairy tale.

His teammate Marcos Ramirez crossed the line second, jumping a handful of positions in just several corners, while Albert Arenas fell to third.

Despite already being champion, Dalla Porta battled at the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday to cement yet another win.

This marks three consecutive victories for the Italian, who returns home to Italy to celebrate his championship with his hometown, prior to the season final race in Valencia on Sunday, November 17.
