Andrea Iannone is 'working to get back on track in 2024'

Gold and Goose

Andrea Iannone will no longer be banned from racing at the end of he 2023 season so the Italian rider has been lining up options to get back to competing once again. It seems like the former MotoGP rider has his sights set on WorldSBK in 2024.

Andrea Iannone has not competitively raced since the end of the 2019 MotoGP season, when he got banned for doping. At the time Iannone had just finished his first year of racing for Aprilia in MotoGP.

It now looks like any door back to MotoGP for Iannone is firmly shut. However, with WorldSBK becoming more popular and competitive it looks like 'The Maniac' will ride there next season.


To make it more interesting it seems the Italian rider, who won for Ducati in MotoGP, will ride a Ducati in WorldSBK next season. Iannone was at Imola on the weekend watching the WorldSBK action and was interviewed by Sky Sport Italia.

"Superbike is very spectacular, it's nice to see races like this, full of overtaking as it once was," said Iannone when talking to Sky Sport Italia.

"I'm happy to be here in the paddock. I'm working to get back on track in 2024 in Superbike, at the moment there are good possibilities. 

"But until everything is settled, I don't think it's fair to say I'll be there. I'll just say that we're heading in the right direction."

If Iannone was to race for Ducati in WorldSBK next season it is likely that it would be for GoEleven or Barni Ducati. Despite Motocorsa Ducati upgrading to a two bike team in 2024, Team Principal Lorenzo Mauri, shut down any idea of Iannone riding for them next year.
