Twenty-three year old Vickers, is no stranger to Kawasaki machinery having achieved a best result of fourth at Thruxton on his way to P12 overall in the 2021 British Superbike Championship.

Ryan Vickers:
“I’m really excited about this weekend to be joining Team Pedercini Racing for a Wildcard opportunity at Most. It’s always been a goal of mine to eventually race in World Superbike and to get this little taster is amazing, so a big thank you to Lucio, Guim and everyone else involved. Also thanks to Faye Ho for allowing me to take this opportunity! I’m going to enjoy this weekend and learn as much as I can from the experience. See you in Most”

Lucio Pedercini:
“We are sorry that we cannot run with Leon as planned in the Czech Republic but fully understand his obligations with Kawasaki in relation to the Suzuka 8 Hour event. We are part of the Kawasaki family and if Leon can help them in Japan we will be very happy. We are however excited to welcome young British rider Ryan Vickers to the team for #CZEWorldSBK. He has shown good pace in BSB and we look forward to working with him in Most – a circuit that should suit a rider coming from BSB. It has been very easy to reach an agreement due to the fact that Ryan is very motivated for this opportunity and is helped by Roger Burnett, with whom I have great deal of respect and have known for a long time.”
