Loris Cresson confirmed at TPR Team Pedercini in 2022
With the 2022 FIM Superbike World Championship season fast approaching TPR Team Pedercini Racing is delighted to confirm that they will field Loris Cresson aboard a Kawasaki ZX10RR-R for a second year.
Cresson will embark on his sophomore season keen to add to his WorldSBK points tally to date and to further close the gap to the front and the TPR Pedercini Racing squad, who remain committed to developing young talent, are excited to see what the young Belgian rider can do now that he is injury free.
The team will begin their pre-season testing schedule at Catalunya in March before travelling to other circuits and on to MotorLand Aragon ahead of the season opener at the Spanish venue in early April.
In addition to fielding Loris Cresson in 2022, TPR Team Pedercini Racing are hopeful of entering ‘wildcards’ and the team are working hard behind the scenes to ensure a second bike is on the grid at several events.
Lucio Pedercini – Team Principal:
“2021 was a year of mutual understanding. 2022 will be the year in which we will do our best to achieve the goals we have set ourselves. We are happy to have Loris Cresson in our team again this year and I am delighted to finally be able to confirm this… our adventure continues, and we are looking forward to making a step on track this year. As a team we are also updating our team website and will be interacting with our fans and the fans of WorldSBK in a much more dynamic way. I can also say that we are working hard behind the scenes and are confident that a second machine will be on track at some point during the season.”
“I am more than happy to continue with the TPR Team Pedercini Racing. It’s been a long winter discussing everything with the team and in the end, we were able to find a solution to continue together. Lucio is a great guy, and we share the same end goal. I am happy to continue with my guys inside the box because we found a good way to work as last year progressed. There was always a good atmosphere and I trust the guys completely. I can’t wait to get back on the race bike but in the meantime, I will test a stock bike like many riders do to be in the best shape possible. The plan looks good, and it should be a good year for us. The level in WorldSBK is high but my target is to score points in all of the races, and I feel strong mentally and after my injury I am also now feeling strong. I want to thank all my family, Andi and everyone who is supporting me and also to Lucio and the entire TPR Team Pedercini because they too have made sacrifices to make this happen.”
