Eugene joins Team Go Eleven for 2019 World Superbike campaign
Team Go Eleven has announced a partnership with Ducati Corse and Eugene Laverty for the 2019 World Superbike Championship.
The Northern Irish rider is a dream come true for Go Eleven, as he is considered one of the strongest riders in the WorldSBK circus. The career record of the ace from Toome is, to say the least, impressive: 25 wins, 56 podiums between Supersport and Superbike World Championships, 2 times second in Supersport World Championship, 1 time second in Superbike World Championship in 2013.
The former MotoGP rider will bring professionalism and experience to the Go Eleven’s box, and the squad are sure that he will keep all fans entertained.
Eugene Laverty (Rider):
“I’m delighted to join Team Go Eleven to ride the new Ducati Panigale V4 R in 2019! The past five weeks has been a stressful period so it’s great to secure a competitive seat in the end. The support from Ducati is reassuring and I’m confident that we will have a package to fight for victory next season. Thank you to Denis Sacchetti and everyone at Team Go Eleven for putting their trust in me!”
Denis Sacchetti (Team Manager):
“I am very excited and happy, we worked hard for this project and at the end we did it! Ducati is the Italian dream of every motorcyclist, I saw the bike and it is awesome! After the first test the riders only expressed positive opinions and praises. Laverty is a very strong rider that I admire and esteem a lot. It is an honor and a great fortune to be able to work with him, I think that this year we will have a lot to learn and entertain. With Eugene I immediately found the agreement, the intentions are common, I felt in him the desire and the right motivations to accept such an important challenge. I can not wait to start!”
