Broc Pearson to continue with DesmoSport Ducati

After much consideration, DesmoSport Ducati is pleased to confirm that Broc Pearson will continue to race a Panigale V4 R alongside Bryan Staring for the remainder of the 2022 Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).

Team co-owner, Ben Henry: Broc did a fantastic job at Morgan Park, and I think it’s fair to say that he earned the opportunity to race the remainder of the season with us, alongside Bryan. Our support and budgets for 2022 were focussed on a one rider effort, so the additional costs for an extra rider is really where the delay in confirming Broc‘s place with us have come from. It’s quite a jump when you consider extra staff, flights, accommodation, and food on top of the costs of building and preparing a race bike, but Troy and I have looked at the numbers and put an offer to Broc that he’s accepted. Knowing the costs are going to be higher, we’ve also decided to push forward with a concept that we’ve been working on in the background for a few months now too, so keep an eye out as we launch DesmoSport Ducati Crew Memberships.”

Broc Pearson: “I was really happy with the way I rode at Morgan Park, and I was grateful for the opportunity that DesmoSport Ducati gave me, but it was always a one round deal. I believe I have more to offer and really want to ride the Panigale V4 R again, and thats basically the conversation I had with Ben and Troy. There are financial hurdles for myself and for the team to get around, and they are focused on Bryan having a strong finish to the season, but we’ve agreed to terms and I’m excited to finish my first ASBK season with DesmoSport.”

Team co-owner, Troy Bayliss: Broc did more than enough to earn a spot next to Bryan in the garage after his performance at Morgan Park. He proved that he can race with Australia’s best superbike riders I’m happy that Ben and I could work out a way to let him finish the season with us. Morgan Park was a local track for Broc, but I don’t think it’s his strongest track, so it will be great to see him ride at Phillip Island and The Bend on the DesmoSport Ducati Panigale V4 R.”
