Former World Superstock 600 race winner Federico Caricasulo is preparing to step up into the World Supersport class for 2016 with Bardahl Evan Bros.

The Italian youngster finished third in the final year of the World Superstock 600 series despite missing the final two rounds, notching up four podiums including a memorable victory at Misano for the Pata Honda Junior Team.

With the World Superstock 600 class winding up over the winter after a raft of format changes by organisers Dorna, Caricasulo will graduate into WSS and join Fabio Evangelista's squad on a Honda CBR 600 prepares by Mauro Pellegrini.

Caricasulo has thanked his team for supporting him and is keen to produce impressive results and performances during his rookie campaign.

"Once more the Evans Bros. team has believed in me and given life to this ambitious project," Caricasulo said. "I want to thank the Team, Bardahl, Honda Motor Europe and everyone who supports me. I promise my dedication and concentration will be at maximum to try and get the best possible results in my first year in the World Championship aboard my amazing CBR."

Caricasulo is gearing up for the World Supersport season opener at Phillip Island on the 26-28 February.
