Formula 3000Edit

Grassoto spent 2002 and 2003 in the Euro Formula 3000 series, in which he was a frontrunner, before moving to the more competitive FIA-backed series for the final two races of 2004 as a replacement for compatriot Raffaele Giammaria. He scored a point for eighth place on his début but retired from the next race. Unable to get a drive in the new GP2 Series for 2005, he went back to country level and competed in one race in Italian F3000.
