SBK, Michele Pirro: wildcard temptation at Misano in Superbike with Ducati V4

The Apulian test rider, who is banned from wildcards in MotoGP until the summer due to regulations, could take to the track with the Panigale five years after his last time in the World Superbike

SBK: Michele Pirro: wildcard temptation at Misano in Superbike with Ducati V4

The regulations approved last year by Dorna and FIM prohibited Ducati and Michele Pirro from being able to perform wildcards until the summer. Therefore, the Apulian test rider we see him only in action in the CIV, called to chase the tenth Italian title.

The fact remains that Michele could soon be back in action in the World Championship, but the Superbike one. Yes, because the hypothesis of a possible wildcard in Misano with the test team at the mid-June round, concurrent among other things with the MotoGP in Kazakhstan, is not to be discarded.

For Pirro it would be an opportunity to participate in a World Superbike round five years after the last time with the Barni colors, while for Ducati it would be an opportunity to gather more data to support Alvaro Bautista and his teammates in the race against Toprak and BMW.

In this regard, we recall that Michele Pirro has already taken the Barcelona test for Ducati and most likely we will see him on track in May at the two-day test in Cremona. The Misano race could be the icing on the cake.
