Lundh, Grotzkyj to form Pedercini Kawasaki line-up?

Alexander Lundh and Simone Grotzkyj are identified as Pedercini Kawasaki's top picks for the 2013 World Superbike Championship.
Pedercini Kawasaki has hinted that it is close to a deal that will see Alexander Lundh and Simone Grotzkyj ride its ZX-10R in the World Superbike Championship next season.

Issuing a press release to reflect on a 2012 season that yielded top ten finishes at World Superbike level and a title-challenge with Bryan Staring in the Superstock 1000 Cup, Pedercini goes on to reveal Lundh and Grotzkyj as its intended line-up for next season.

Lundh's inclusion in the line-up comes after he pariticpated in the final four events with Pedercini Kawasaki, the Swede coming on board as the replacement for Leandro Mercado. In that time Lundh, who has credits in World Supersport and Moto2 competition, notched up four 14th place finishes.

Grotzkyj, meanwhile, has spent much of his career in the 125GP championship, his best season coming in 2011 when he scored a best finish of eighth on the way to 16th position overall. This year he raced a part-season in Moto3 with Ambrogio Next Racing.

Currently sourcing the budget before officially confirming its rider line-up, Pedercini also signalled its intentions to run an unchanged team at Superstock 1000 level with Staring, who won three races on the way to third overall in 2012, and Mercado.

Corti will ride a CRT bike alongside Edwards. And for Lundh and Grotzky... they just have money. Pedercini's always been a team of pay riders. Otherwise I think they could be a regular top 10 finishers, I don't think their bikes are much worse than the 'factory' Motorcard effort.
