Leading Superstock 1000 team Barni Racing has confirmed its plans to enter a trio of World Superbike races in 2014 as a wild-card.

The Italian team, which will compete in the SSTK 1000 class with a new rider line-up of Leandro Mercado and Ondrej Jezek, confirmed at the launch of its 2014 campaign that it will enter an EVO-specification Ducati 1199 Panigale at Imola, Misano and an as-yet-confirmed event.

The outfit is no stranger to WSBK competition having submitted several wild-card entries over the years, but this will be the first time it has competed in the newly-created EVO class.
