Zanetti, Ducati confirmed for Pata Racing

The Pata Racing team has confirmed its commitment with Lorenzo Zanetti, who will now line-up at the start of the Superbike World Championship on a Ducati 1198 RS. The agreement between the Italian manufacturers and the team was signed a short time ago, after the one linking Zanetti to Andrea Prando`s team. Both sides are extremely satisfied with the agreement, which aims to confirm Pata`s ambitions for the new year: bike, rider and brand projected into the top class of production-derived racing, flying the flag for Italian motorcycling in the world.

Marco Gobbi, Pata owner, said: “Pata`s aim in 2012 is to invest in talented young Italian riders: I would say that having Zanetti in the team and an icon such as the Ducati 1198, is already a big success. Knowing that we can race with the current world championship winning bike gives us a major stimulus. For our part, we are still aiming to be successful in a championship in which we want to play a major role. Thanks to everyone who was involved in the negotiations and who made this agreement possible”.

After a season in Superstock 1000 which saw him finish third overall, 24-year-old Lorenzo Zanetti is now ready to make the big step upwards into Superbike. “I`m really pleased about this accord: both Pata Racing team and I have ambitious plans for next season. The Ducati is a competitive bike and I`ve already had a chance to race it, hopefully I can establish a good feeling from the first tests in Australia. I`d like to thank Remo and Marco Gobbi, the owners of Pata, and Andrea Prando, my team manager for putting their faith in me.”

Andrea Prando, Team Manager of Pata Racing, added: “Having such a determined young rider as Lorenzo in the team is a major asset; I feel sure that having a rider of his calibre and the reigning title-winning bike in our team will make it possible for us to go a long way in this championship”.
