The Misano World Marco Simoncelli Circuit will play host to several teams and riders with a two day test starting tomorrow, as the 2021 WorldSBK season gets closer. 

Track action will see riders from both the World Superbike and World Supersport championships take part. 

The headline attractions will of course be Aruba.it Ducati and Pata Yamaha, as they look to close the gap on Kawasaki going into the new campaign.

2020 championship runner-up Scott Redding will be in action and leading the way for Ducati, as he looks to go one step further in 2021 after a strong rookie season. 

His new team-mate Michael Ruben-Rinaldi will also be on track for the first time in his new colors. 

The factory duo will be joined by Ducati's Team Goeleven's Chaz Davies who was replaced by Rinaldi for this season, while former MotoGP rider Tito Rabat and Axel Bassani are also scheduled for action. 

For the factory Pata Yamaha team, main title contender Toprak Razgatlioglu will be in action as well, alongside new team-mate and 2020 WorldSSP champion Andrea Locatelli. 

GRT Yamaha will also be at the test with last year's rookie sensation Garrett Gerloff and Kohta Nozane. Nozane has been a busy rider in recent days, as he completed six days of MotoGP testing for Yamaha, and heads to Italy for his debut test with the Superbike team. 

Other teams and riders on track will involve Gil Motor Sport Yamaha rider Christophe Ponssen, and Puccetti Racing Kawasaki rider Lucas Mahias. 

There will be WorldSSP action too, with Kawasaki team-mates and former Grand Prix duo Can Oncu and Phillip Oettl. 

The final two riders are 2019 WorldSSP champion Randy Krummenacher who returns to the series, and South African Steven Odendaal for the Evan Bros. Yamaha team. 

Testing gets underway on both days from 9am-6pm local time (GMT-1).
