Bayliss To Remain With Ducati In Thailand

1 Mins read

Troy Bayliss will continue to deputise for the injured Davide Giugliano at Ducati in the second round of the World Superbike Championship in Thailand two weeks from now. The three-time champion stepped in for the Italian at his home event in Australia last time out but with Giugliano expected to be out for another two months, Bayliss’ services have been called upon for a second time.

Despite being thrown in at the deep end, Bayliss was competitive throughout the Phillip Island weekend, closing the gap on the leaders session-by-session and scoring points for thirteenth in race one. The 45-year-old is excited to see how he performs in Thailand and expects the extra preparation to stand him in good stead this time around.

“I’m really excited to be able to ride the Panigale R again and I thank the Racing – Ducati Superbike Team for the opportunity. It will be great to work with the team again. Compared to the Phillip Island round, organised pretty much at the last minute, this time I’ve had the chance to train and prepare myself properly. I’m really motivated and feeling ready; I can’t wait to get back on track!”

The second round of the 2015 World Superbike Championship takes place at the Chang International Circuit, a brand new addition to the series, on March 22nd.
