The Barni Spark Racing Team have shared their 2024 WorldSBK livery.

The team's 10th season in the WorldSBK championship will again feature Danilo Petrucci as its rider.

They will also compete with Yari Montella in Supersport series, and Michele Pirro in the CIV series.

Petrucci said: "We sought this renewal because both the team and I believe there are all the prerequisites to surpass last year's more than satisfactory results. 

"If we are still here, it is because we want more. In 2023, it took us half a season to become competitive; now we start with a different awareness from the first race."

Montella said: "The team presentation is always an exciting moment, an opportunity to gather all the people who support us during the season. 

"During the winter, I've been training hard, and I've had the chance to ride the Panigale V2 a lot. It's been very important to arrive at Phillip Island already at my maximum."


Pirro said: "Together with the Barni Spark Racing Team, we have achieved 65 victories and six Italian titles. However, the desire to win remains the same from both myself and Barni. 

"I sincerely thank the Barnabò family; sportingly, I owe them so much. After ten years, a friendship has been created that goes beyond racing. 

"From the outside, it all looks easy, but nothing we have achieved together is taken for granted. We need maximum commitment, which has never been lacking, and the support of everyone. A special thanks to the sponsors who allow us to be on the track."

Edoardo Aquilano said: "It's an honor to be part of the Barni Spark Racing Team and to stand beside Danilo, Michele, and Yari.

"For me, they represent valuable examples to follow as role models. I can't wait to get on track and be supported by Marco Barnabò and his staff. I am curious and anxious to see the team at work. I will give 100% on and off the track to be competitive."

Marco Barnabò, Team Principal, added: "In 2024 it will be the tenth season in the WorldSBK championship and whoever chooses to be by our side also bonds a little with Ducati. 

"It would be nice to celebrate with good results, we don't lack anything to do so: we've worked hard all winter with our suppliers and I'm sure the riders have done the same. We want to be protagonists in all the championships."
