The Barni Spark Racing team announced today that Danilo Petrucci has inked a deal to compete for the team in the 2023 World Superbike Championship.

Petrucci finally made his decision after deliberating between a return to the MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship with the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC team or staying home and competing in the Superbike World Championship with Barni. Today, he made that decision final.

Petrucci finished second in the 2022 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship, winning five races and finishing on the podium in 16 of the 20 races.

Now, the focus will fall on who will replace Petrucci on the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati NYC Panigale V4 R in the 2023 MotoAmerica Championship.
