Posted:

Team Pedercini Kawaskai has confirmed its line-up in the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup team with Australian Superbike Champion Bryan Staring to join Marco Bussolotti and Leandro Mercado.

23-year-old Staring is the only Australian rider who was able to win 125, 600 and Superbike Australian championships and has really high hopes for big results next year.

Marco Bussolotti, a 20-year-old Italian rider came second twice in Stock 600 championships, last year his season was halted due to injuries incurred following crashes at Brno, but he's now ready and looking forward to racing again.

Team owner Donato Pedercini said "Concerning the Superstock team, we strongly believe that a team with Bussolotti, Mercado and Staring will put us in a good position to fight for first place in the next Superstock 1000 FIM Cup.

In the World Superbike class the team also confimred Roberto Rolfo as the 2011 rider

The 30-year-old Italian will be riding Kawasaki's brand new ZX-10R.

Rolfo started his career in the WSBK in 1996 when he rode in the 250cc division. Rolfo has ridden in both the MotoGP and Moto2 classes since then. He also has premier class experience in the WSBK, riding for Ducati in 2006, then moving onto a Honda for the next few years.

Rolfo spent the 2010 season in the Moto2 class where he took two wins and a third place finish.

"Everyone in our team is absolutely delighted to welcome Roberto back to Superbike," said Donato Pedercin said.

"He has been competitive in his previous three years in our championship and we are all looking forward to reaching very good results with him, taking advantage of the big potential of the new Kawasaki ZX 10R. We are sure about his talent, motivation and experience and we'll do our best to give him a competitive bike too.

"We have already started working very hard on the new ZX10R. The bike is completely new and we have had a bit of time to work together with our suppliers, with Ohlins and in cooperation with Kawasaki, in order to be ready at the beginning of the season. We are scheduling some test sessions before and after the official pre-season tests in Portimao, during which we will further develop the Kawasaki ZX10R."

Rolfo is also looking forward to returning to the World Superbike series.

"I'm really very happy to return to the Superbike championship. My three years' experience in this fascinating and competitive championship was unforgettable and I will try my best to improve my preceding results," Rolfo said." I immediately established a good feeling with the entire Pedercini family. They are reputable professionals and we are on the same wavelength concerning next year's targets."

"I decided to leave Moto2 because I'm eager to ride the new Kawasaki ZX10R and take advantage of all its great power," He continued. "It feels grand to be back in Superbike and I'm determined to put a good season together next year. I'm looking forward to testing the new bike very soon and getting familiar with it while also getting to better know my new team. This will be my very first time on a Kawasaki bike.
