The great return of Ducati


Led Rea, the best in the latest tests

Return in style for the Red of Borgo Panigale which in the Supersport world championship won the historic title in 97 (at the time the World Cup) with Paolo Casoli and the beautiful 748 RS, little sister of the 916 of Maestro Tamburini. This year, the Superbike factory team extends its commitment by deploying the Panigale V2 in Supersport. The 955 twin is entrusted to Nicolò Bulega eager to relaunch his career, why not, perhaps emulating the path followed by Andrea Locatelli who, after leaving Moto2, became SS World Champion before being promoted to the official Yamaha Superbike team. Federico also drives the 955 load it upfielded by Althea Racing, Raffaele From Rosa (Orelac team) and Oli Bayliss (son of the legend Troy) with the Barni Spark Racing Team. Remaining in the Italian part of the grid, Davide Giugliano returns instead to the paddock as team manager of D34G Racing, which entrusts the V2 to the brothers Filippo and Federico. Fuligni.

MV Agusta F3, not only beautiful

Schiranna’s house is featured on the grid with the three cylinder F3, no longer in the 675 configuration but in the “augmented” 800 RR.

Triumph in search of glory also in the world championship

After cashing in on some very positive results in BSB, Triumph returns to the Supersport World Championship with the Speed ​​Triple RS. The English three-cylinder was deployed by the Dynavolt team, which entrusted one of the two 765s to Stefano Manzi, who was also making his debut among the series derivatives after several years in Moto2.

Also in 2022, the Akashi house is represented on the track, among others, by the team Puccetti race, historical reference of the Japanese house. Both ZX-6R of the Italian team – in version 636 (new!) are entrusted to the Turk Can Öncü and our Yari Montella. For Yamaha, which has won the title for 5 consecutive seasons, the reference teams remain Ten Kate with the outgoing champion Aegerter, GMT94 with Cruzel and the Italian Evan Bros.
