Superbike: Team Pedercini Racing unveil their riders and livery for 2019

Team Pedercini Racing by Global Service Solutions introduced today, in front of a big and passionate crowd at the Motor Bike Expo, the new livery for season 2019, that will see the Italian outfit competing in the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship and FIM Supersport World Championship.

Team Owner Lucio Pedercini, Team Manager Giordano Mozzi and the two riders Jordi Torres and Ayrton Badovini finally unveiled the 2019 program that will see Team Pedercini Racing by Global Service Solutions competing on the two most exciting motorbike championships in the world.

The first big news is the liveries that will colour the #81 Kawasaki ZX-10RR ridden by Torres and Badovini’s #86 Kawasaki ZX-6R. Colour blue is dominant and recalls the image of the title sponsor Global Service Solutions. This novelty for the first time ever changes the classic Kawasaki green colours and combines the black and white details on the fairing with the fluorescent red of the windshield and the graphic design of the racing numbers.

The second big news is the participation of the Italian team not only in the MOTUL FIM Superbike 2019 World Championship, series in which Team Pedercini Racing boasts the longest experience in the circus but also in the new FIM Supersport World Championship with the first Kawasaki powered by a 600cc engine. This is a double exciting challenge that mirrors well the new course of the Italian outfit for this season.

Lucio Pedercini – Team Owner: “This is the start of a global change for our team. The arrival of Giordano Mozzi as Team Manager and the fundamental partnership with a big company like Global Service Solutions allow us to be positive about this coming season. This is going to be my twenty-eighth year in the World Championship and I am still feeling like an excited kid. This is undoubtedly a very important moment for our team”.

Giordano Mozzi – Team Manager: It is great to be here and a huge honour to for me to have taken on this role in the team of Lucio Pedercini, who is a long time friend and that I deeply appreciate on the human level. We put up an important and ambitious plan to make the team grow through strategic collaborations not only for this season but also on the medium-long period, as that with title sponsor Global Service Solutions. I would like to thank I.M.C. Trading, and particularly Mr. Antonello, who made this collaboration possible, and Studio Costa that has been following us for several years regarding legal and contract aspects. The season is coming fast, we bought a new workshop-truck and double hospitality, where, in the due respect of Team Pedercini Racing’s philosophy, I invite you all from now on. I believe we will have fun this year”.

Roberto Colombo – Global Service Solutions President: I was born in Monza, the land of motorsport, my father was a rider and passed this passion on to me. Lucio Pedercini and I had a great feeling since the beginning and we devised a three-years industrial project connected to the racing world, focusing on the technical aspect, as well as on promotion and marketing. I believe in it, the atmosphere is quite homely and we share every single step, getting things ready to make Philip Island the first tile of a great mosaic”.

Jordi Torres #81 – Rider: I cannot wait to get on the bike, to push it, feel it, live it and understand its critical points and work with the team to push it to the limits. I am quite positive, the base level is great, Team Pedercini Racing by Global Service Solutions made an incredible change this year and I invite you all to follow us throughout this exciting season”.

Ayrton Badovini #86 – Rider:“The new livery is great, the partnership with Global Service Solutions is simply amazing. I am really excited and cannot wait to start. Two testing days are ahead: we will try to use them to learn as much as possible before heading to Australia where things are gonna get serious”.

The sporting programme of Team Pedercini Racing by Global Service Solutions will officially begin at the Philip Island (AUS) race track with the first round of the championship scheduled on February 22-24th, but before then, a double Superbike winter testing session will take place in Portimao (P) on January 27-28th and in Phillip Island on February 18-19th.
