Italian Danilo Petrucci may ride for Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati in the 2022 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship.

Petrucci was quoted in a recent report out of Italy saying he is considering riding for Ducati in MotoAmerica.

A source in America with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to RoadracingWorld.com that Petrucci is one of a few riders being considered for the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati team and that Petrucci and Ducati met this weekend at Misano.

The source also said that Ducati Corse will have more direct involvement with the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati team in 2022 and will choose and contract their rider directly.

Petrucci, who currently rides for the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing satellite team, crashed out of today’s MotoGP race at Misano. He is currently 19th in the World Championship point standings with a best 2021 race finish of fifth at Mugello.

Frenchman Loris Baz rode for Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York in the 2021 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship, but Baz has signed to race a Bonovo Action BMW in the 2022 Superbike World Championship.
