SBK, Ducati: after Redding, two other riddles to solve on the market

At home, Barni holds court to Michael Rinaldi's contract renewal, a poker of names instead after Laverty in Go Eleven

SBK: Ducati: after Redding, two other riddles to solve on the market

Bautista in Honda, Razgatlioglu in Yamaha. While waiting for these two negotiations to be formalized, a real domino effect was unleashed on the Superbike market. As if that weren't enough, Laverty's passage into BMW also lit a  fuse. With Eugene's farewell, Go Eleven is therefore forced to look for a replacement for next season.

Gianni Ramello and Dennis Sacchetti are evaluating different riders.

One who's appealing is Lorenzo Savadori. After Aprilia's farewell to the derivatives, he was forced to restart from the MotoE. Many are interested in him, even if the rider from Romagna is being followed by Pedercini and Puccetti. The latter called to find a rider who would pick up the baton after Toprak Razgatlioglu.

It wouldn't hurt to see an Italian rider on an Italian team, even if there are three other names on the roster. One of these is Michael Ruben Rinaldi, should the former champion of the Stock1000 not renew his contract with Barni. Certainly, the priority of the rider from Rimini is to continue his adventure on Barnabò's Panigale V4R after a season that allowed him to remain on the upper floors of the class on several occasions.

A passage to Go Eleven wouldn't be such a big leap for Michael, who is slowly developing the Panigale to suit himself. In a summer market where the coming weeks will be, to say the least, heated, we still have to understand what will happen with Sandro Cortese.

The German rider is in Ramello's radar, even if Sandro's renewal with GRT seems practically taken for granted. He'll be sharing the 2020 pit-box with Federico Caricasulo, whose passage to the Superbike seems like a done deal. The rider from Romagna could find his current teammate, Randy Krummenacher, in the top class of the derivatives.

The Evan Bros rider, who is aiming towards conquering the SSP title, is interested in Go Eleven's Ducati. If he were to win the SuperSport title, his goal is to make the jump into the SBK.

At the moment, this seems to be the only way to go for the Swiss rider.
