Petrucci Says He’s Coming To MotoAmerica

Former MotoGP regular Danilo Petrucci is currently racing for KTM in his first Dakar Rally, in Saudi Arabia, but the next racing the Italian does will likely be on a Ducati in MotoAmerica.

Since September, it’s been rumored that Petrucci may come to MotoAmerica and race a factory-supported Ducati Panigale V4 R Superbike for Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York. A member of the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York team told in September that any 2022 rider announcement probably wouldn’t come until January, which is when the Dakar Rally will end.

While an official announcement hasn’t been made by Ducati or Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York yet, Petrucci was recently quoted on a Spanish website as saying he’s coming to MotoAmerica.

“What I like the most is that I chose rallies because I like being on the bike and the same will be in MotoAmerica,” Petrucci was quoted as saying in an article published January 2, 2022, on “I’m going to see a new continent and at 31 it was okay to try. But I promise you, this will not be the only Dakar.”
