Former MotoGP rider and 2022 Dakar Rally stage winner, Danilo Petrucci will return to track racing after officially confirming that he will race at the 2022 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship.
The Italian is set to enter race with Warhorse HSBK Ducati Racing onboard the Ducati Panigale V4.
He was previously confirmed to enter the race but needed the paperwork to be completed before making the official announcement.
The day has officially arrived and the former Ducati rider is excited over his return on a Ducati machine.
“I’m so happy that I am coming back to race with Ducati and I would like to give a special thank you to all the Ducait people who made this project possible,” said Petrucci in a statement.
“I spoke about this project with Eraldo Ferracci (Advisor, Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NY) at Circuit of the Americas last year and all the management including Claudio Domenicali, Gigi Dall’Igna, Paolo Ciabatti and Davide Tardozzi, and they were really happy to have me on board again.”
The 31-year-old Italian will ride a factory-build Ducati Panigale V4 R in the MotoAmerica series on April 8th.
