With Frenchman Loris Baz reportedly headed back to the World Superbike Championship for 2022 with the Bonovo BMW team, Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati issued a release today confirming their continued participation in the MotoAmerica Superbike class for 2022 while also preparing to race in the 2022 MotoAmerica Supersport class.
The following is from HSBK Racing…
The factory-supported Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Team has announced it will return to the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship for 2022 with the latest-spec Ducati Panigale V4 R superbike.
The team also announced that it will compete in the new “Supersport Next Generation” class, which permits the use of the 955cc Panigale V2.
The Frenchman Loris Baz rode for Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Team in the 2021 MotoAmerica HONOS Superbike Championship, claiming nine podiums throughout the nine-round season.
“The Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York Team thanks Baz for his great work throughout the 2021 season,” says Bobby Shek, Team Principal. “Loris helped us further develop the V4 R for competition here in the U.S. and in a way we helped him get back on the world stage where he belongs.”
As for a 2021 MotoAmerica Superbike season wrap, Baz learned a new track for each round as the team focused on a setup that worked with the Dunlop-spec tires.
Following the rain-soaked 2021 MotoAmerica Superbike season finale at Barber Motorsports Park in September, Baz finished fourth in points with 238.
Stay tuned for a press release about Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Team’s rider plans for the 2022 MotoAmerica season, which begins with the 80th edition of DAYTONA 200 weekend set for March 10-12, 2022.
