Outdo TPR Team Pedercini and Dieffe Organisation enter new adventure together
OUTDO TPR Team Pedercini Racing is pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Fabrizio Ducci’s Dieffe Organization with immediate effect, but with an eye specifically on the 2022 season and beyond.

The Majorcan acts as a coach for the teams’ riders, providing on-track support as well as hosting riders at his racing academy based in his native Majorca. Salom won the 2006 Spanish Supersport Championship, reaching three podiums in the FIM Supersport World Championship, before moving to WorldSBK, where he was one of the top six finishers, finally winning the “EVO” title in 2014.

He will deal with the expansion and growth of the team from the acquisition of new partners, public relations and dissemination of image in one of the areas in which Dieffe Organization Fabrizio Ducci is specialised.
“I am really happy to meet my good friend again inside the Paddock. It’s funny how life works sometimes, kind of like a big circle. Fabrizio and I had many good times together before as rider and manager and I am sure that this new collaboration between us will be great for the future of Outdo TPR Team Pedercini. I am excited that Dieffe Organisation wants to work with us and cannot wait for us to begin.”
“I’ve known Lucio since 1991 and he was one of the riders I started my career within the world of motorcycling, which then became my world, giving me enormous satisfaction. This summer we met talking about motorcycling in the past and motorcycling today. I lived the world of World Superbike from the beginning of the 2000s until 2010 and it was definitely a different Superbike back then. It won’t be easy, as I’ll certainly find a different world with different difficulties, remembering that we are also in times of pandemic, but I’ve always liked challenges and I’ll throw myself back into the fray trying to bring my experience and my work as a Consulting Manager for the team, an activity that I have been carrying out for several years now for companies that want to grow, expand customers and visibility From now on we’ll put our heads down with maximum commitment in the hope of achieving important objectives.”
