Luca Scassa targeting Aragon WSBK return

Pedercini Kawasaki's Luca Scassa turns his attentions to making his first appearance of WSBK 2014 in Spain.
Luca Scassa has high hopes that he will be present at the second round of the 2014 World Superbike Championship after being forced to skip the opener through injury.

The Italian was set to make his return to both the Pedercini team and Superbike competition on the EVO-specification ZX-10R at Phillip Island, but a crash in testing left him nursing a broken pelvis.

Forced to miss the Australian opener, Scassa has now turned his attention to the second event of the year at Motorland Aragon, where the lengthy gap between events is giving him a chance to make a full recovery.

"A broken pelvis usually takes around 30 days. Considering there are still 40 days left before the next round and that I'm currently in the third week of rehabilitation, I really think I will be at Aragon. I hope that I can start doing some cycling with my Enduro team soon."

Reflecting on his move into the new EVO class, Scassa – who has experience at MotoGP and Supersport level too - says he is supportive of the decision to adopt new regulations. He is also encouraged by the pace of David Salom on a sister ZX-10R in Australia, whom he raced alongside in the World Supersport Championship last year.

"The EVO class is the winning formula in my opinion. I liked it as soon as it was announced, many people don't have a good opinion about it but I think we should take a clear look to the reality of things.

“I'm happy that Kawasaki and David (Salom) won the first two races, this gives me an extra motivation to show what we are capable of. Our goal is to fight up front with in the EVO class, the bike has already shown its potential and now it's up to us."
