Casey finished eighth overall in his rookie Moto GP season, and demonstrated that he was able to challenge amongst the elite group.
2007 was a golden year for Casey after joining the Factory Ducati Marlboro Team alongside Loris Capirossi, with whom he had struck up a good friendship.
Finally in 2006, at twenty years of age, Casey accomplished his long held ambition of racing in Moto GP, the fastest and most prestigious of the classes.
He took pole position in his second ever Moto GP race in Qatar and battled for the win until the final corner in the GP of Turkey, finishing runner-up just a fraction behind winner Melandri.
In 2004, at 18 years of age, Casey moved to KTM for a season where he helped to develop the team’s 125cc bike into a winning machine.
Casey had a slow start to 2010 and it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t until round 13, at the inaugural Aragon GP, that he secured his first win of the season.
Also in that year he raced in two rounds of the Spanish 125cc Championship, where he caught the eye of former racer Alberto Puig.
Alberto was impressed by Casey’s determination and skill and invited him to race for the Telefonica Movistar Team in the 125cc Spanish Championship the following year.
Casey was born on October 16th 1985 in Southport, Australia, and competed in his first race was when he was just four years old, in an under-nines race.
Whilst racing in Australia at a young age, he famously over one weekend raced in 5 different categories in all 7 rounds of each capacity; a weekend consisting of 35 different races.
