Matteo Baiocco will make his second appearance on the World Superbike Championship stage this season after signing up to compete at Brno as a wild-card.

The Italian, who races full-time in the CIV Italian Superbike series, competed as a wild-card for Barni Ducati at his home event of Misano, the former Pedercini Kawasaki rider scoring points with a run to 12th position.

Though Barni Ducati ran two bikes on that occasion, with Alex Polita partnering Baiocco, the team will focus on just a single machine in the Czech Republic.
