We’ve been hearing rumours for a few weeks – but it’s now official. Scott Redding is heading to World Superbikes for 2020, joining the ARUBA.IT Ducati team for 2020.
Redding will replace Spanish sensation Alvaro Bautista (who has been rumoured to be on his way to Honda) – and race as part of a three-man squad alongside Chaz Davies for the Italian-based factory team.
The news isn’t a huge surprise – after Ducati Corse Sporting Director Paolo Ciabatti revealed that Redding was “first on their list” as a possible rider to complete their 2020 line-up.
Speaking about the news, Redding said: “I’m so happy to join the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team, which is something that I’ve wanted for a long time, because to be able to work with a team that can fight for a world title is really a great opportunity for me. Obviously now I have to remain fully focused on the British Superbike Championship, because I want to try and win that title with the Be Wiser Ducati before stepping back up to a world championship again. A big thanks to all those people who have helped to make this dream happen, and now I can’t wait to get on the factory Panigale V4 R bike in the World Superbike Championship.”
