Leon Haslam returns to the WorldSBK with Team Pedercini
TPR Team Pedercini is delighted to announce that Leon Haslam will join the team on four occasions during the 2022 FIM Superbike World Championship season.
Haslam, 2010 WorldSBK runner up and with 313 race starts under his belt, will return to the series with the team for the first time at the Misano Round before running in three different events – Donington Park, Most Autodrom and Portimao.
Wildcarding for TPR Team Pedercini is not something new for the #91, who raced into the top five with the squad at the Losail International Circuit in 2016.
The team and Leon are excited that they have this opportunity to work together again and are optimistic about what they can achieve together.
TPR Team Pedercini also wishes Leon the best of luck in his BSB (British Superbike Championship) fight, where he is looking to regain the crown he won in 2018.
Lucio Pedercini – Team Principal:
“Leon coming back to our team is a perfect match. We both still have a lot to say on track in the WorldSBK paddock, and we are looking forward to entertaining the public for four rounds of pure racing passion! Thanks to our knowledge and his ability, we are confident that we will do battle and hopefully bring some good results as we did together in the past. For sure, it will be a lot of fun.”
“I am super excited. I’ve known Lucio for so many years and raced against him back in the day when I first started. I did a one-off wildcard with the team in Qatar a few years back and managed to finish in the top five, and I have a lot of fond memories of being a part of the team.
Coming back and riding with them again after all these years is exciting for me, and I hope we can achieve some good results together. The focus of the course is BSB, but we have been able to find a solution that will see me return to the WorldSBK for these four races, and I am looking forward to it.”
