Racing - Junior Team

After two exciting seasons in the Superstock 1000 European Championship – resulted in a second place in its debut year and a title last season – the Racing - Junior Team is ready to step up to the challenge and compete in the WorldSBK Championship with Michael Ruben Rinaldi, who will ride a Ducati Panigale R.

The 22-year-old rider from Italy, who took the title on a "stock" Panigale R with three wins and five podiums overall in 2017, will thus make his debut in the top class after successfully moving his first steps on the WorldSBK-spec twin-cylinder during the 2017 winter tests.

In its debut year in WorldSBK, the team will participate to all European rounds, and will then evaluate whether to extend its commitment worldwide.
