I mainly concentrated on the Red Bull Honda WSBK team presentation but of course also some other teams did already launch their bikes for the upcoming season. So let’s sum it up.
On the 5th February the Puccetti Kawasaki had their presentation. The team is coming to WorldSBK category with Randy Krummenacher.
They also presented their WorldSSP and STK1000 teams. This team will also appear in the WorldSSP300 category. It’s really big structure. In WorldSSP they will have two teams. One – Kawasaki Puccetti Racing – with the 5 times World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu and Kyle Ryde and another one – Puccetti Racing Junior Team FMI – with Michael Canducci. In STK1000 class they will race with Toprak Razgatlioglu, while another Turk – Harun Cabuk – will race for them in the new WSSP300 category.
On the 7th February there was the PATA Yamaha team launch. Yamaha did some presentations also for other racing series there.
In the World Superbikes they will fight for top places with Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes.
On the 8th February (today) Aruba.it Racing – Ducati presented their team and bikes. Chaz Davies stays with the team for another one season, Marco Melandri will be his team mate.
They also presented their Junior Team which will race in STK1000 category with Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Mike Jones. Unfortunately I can’t find any pictures of them so I’ll add only some photos of the main WSBK team.
