Bryan Staring News
The Australian Bryan Staring is no stranger to Kawasaki Ninja machinery. He has competed aboard Ninja ZX-10R motorcycles since 2011 in both the Superstock 1000 Championship, along with various World SBK races.
And due to a regulation change in Superstock 1000 that allows riders up to 28-years old to compete, the 27-year-old Staring rejoins Team Pedercini Kawasaki for an assault on the 2015 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup class – a support series for the World Superbike Championship.
While competing for Team Pedercini in the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Staring amassed three race wins. In 2013, he competed in the MotoGP Championship aboard the Gresini FTR Honda, and finished the latter part of 2014 World Superbike with the Grillini team, which also used Kawasaki Ninja machinery.
This year’s Superstock 1000 FIM Cup races will feature at eight rounds during the 14-round World SBK season. The first race of 2015 will be at Motorland Aragon April 10-12.
Speaking of the deal, Staring says “Signing for Kawasaki and Pedercini to race in Superstock again has been like a breath of fresh air. I feel like I have a fighting chance. I am thanking my lucky stars that I could turn back to Superstock because all I want to do is be competitive in some form of world championship racing. This is by far the best opportunity I could have had in the WSB paddock.
“I could not be happier than to come back to Superstock with Kawasaki as I feel we have such a good relationship. This year we have a pretty big goal to reach and I think it is quite achievable because we have all the right tools. Winning the championship is the goal, as it should be every year, and I think we should be in a position to do that this year.”
Lucio Pedercini, Team Manager, says: “Bryan rode with us for two years so we know him well and I trust him a lot. I am sure he can do a good job, and for sure he can win. We will try to win the championship. After one year in MotoGP and last year in Superbike he has gained a lot of experience so I am sure he can fight for the title.”
