Kawasaki Puccetti Racing back in action with tests at Jerez and Portimao

The opening rounds of the 2024 WorldSBK and WorldSSP will take place in a little over a month at Phillip Island in Australia, which means that it is now time for Kawasaki Puccetti Racing to head out on track and evaluate the work it has completed over the winter months. Manuel Puccetti’s technical squad and riders Can Oncu and Tito Rabat have worked tirelessly to prepare for what is set to be a challenging but very interesting season.

Having undergone surgery to sections of his brachial plexus damaged in an incident at Assen, Can Oncu cannot wait to get back on his Ninja ZX-6R complete with 2024 updates. The young Turk will be looking to rebuild confidence with his bike and return to full fitness. Can will complete five days of testing, at Jerez de la Frontera in Spain, on 20-22 January and again on 24-25 January.

Tito Rabat will be able to test the KRT factory replica Ninja ZX-10RR with which he will complete his first full season with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing, the bike updated in accordance with the new regulations. The Spaniard has not stopped training and is eager to adapt his riding style to the Ninja. He will test at Jerez de la Frontera on 24-25 January and at the Autodromo do Algarve in Portimao, Portugal on 29-30 January.

“The winter break is almost at an end, and we cannot wait to get out on track and back to work with our riders during the tests that come before the Phillip Island season opener. We’ll have a lot of new things to test, on both Oncu and Rabat’s bikes. Can will need to readapt to his bike after his operation and months away from the track. We really believe in him and are sure he can put together another season at the top level. Tito will be riding the KRT factory replica Ninja ZX-10RR that, thanks also to the latest regulatory updates, should allow him to aim for the top ten on a regular basis. My thanks go to Kawasaki and KRT for all their support.”
