Not fewer than Twenty six permanent riders have subscribed to be part of the 10th running of the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup.
The Barni Racing team should feature strongly once again with Leandro ‘Tati’ Mercado being joined by Czech Ondrej Jezek in a new look team. Pedercini Kawasaki should also be amongst the front runners, the Italian team retaining the services of Lorenzo Savadori, whilst adding former Supersport point scorer Balazs Nemeth (Hungary) and Frenchman Romain Lanusse to their squad.
Honda are putting their faith in the Agro-On WIL Racedays for 2014, with American rider Josh Day returning to the World Superbike paddock after a season racing in IDM. He is joined by British rider Kyle Smith, who remains with the Honda outfit after taking an emphatic victory in the STK600 race at Jerez last year. Another interesting change to proceedings concerns the EAB Team who have switched from Honda to Ducati machinery this season. Italian Fabio Massei and Dane Alex Schacht will pilot the beautifully turned out EAB 1199 Panigale machines
