Australian Ben Currie has signed to ride for Steve Moore’s Oxford Racing Ducati squad as it expands into the British Supersport class.
The Winchester-based team has already celebrated success in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, finishing runner-up in the title fight in 2021 and claiming third place this season, and now has its sights set on showcasing the Ducati in the Supersport class.
The Panigale V2 will be built at the Moto Rapido workshop to the same specification as the World Championship machines, working together with the team’s technical partners Termignoni and K-tech. The team has already started preparing the bike with a full testing programme commencing in the New Year.
“It is a dream come true to join the Moto Rapido team to ride a Ducati in the British Championship,” said Currie.
“I honestly cannot wait to ride the V2, I have been racing against it all year in the World Championship and it looks super strong. With a year under its belt racing at that level, combined with the experience of the team, I’m confident that we can challenge for the title. For now, the key is to prepare for next year.”
