Bryan Staring will return to Team Pedercini for a challenge on the 2015 FIM Superstock 1000 Cup, three years after he last competed with the outfit.

The Australian won three races en route to fourth overall during the 2012 SSTK 1000 season, preluding a surprise move into MotoGP in 2013 on the CRT Gresini Honda.

Since then, Staring enjoyed a part-season in World Superbikes with Grillini Kawasaki last year, but for 2015 he will return to the Superstock 1000 ranks alongside Frenchman Romain Lanusse, who has been retained by the Italian team.

"Signing for Kawasaki and Pedercini to race in Superstock again has been like a breath of fresh air," he said. "I feel like I have a fighting chance. I am thanking my lucky stars that I could turn back to Superstock because all I want to do is be competitive in some form of world championship racing.

"This is by far the best opportunity I could have had in the WSB paddock. I could not be happier than to come back to Superstock with Kawasaki as I feel we have such a good relationship.

"This year we have a pretty big goal to reach and I think it is quite achievable because we have all the right tools. Winning the championship is the goal, as it should be every year, and I think we should be in a position to do that this year."

Team Pedercini will continue to compete in both the WSBK and SSTK class in 2015, with David Salom riding in the former with official support from Kawasaki.
