Having enjoyed top six performances in 2019, the Kawasaki-equipped team will be back for more success in the 2020 World Superbike Championship

After a season of valuable learning and plenty of highs, the Orelac Racing VerdNatura will continue in the World Superbike Championship in 2020. Based in Valencia, the team stepped up to the class in 2018 with Argentine hero Leandro Mercado, with numerous strong results in WorldSBK. The target will be firmly set on constant top ten results for the forthcoming seasons. With the team confirming their presence on the 2020 WorldSBK grid, their rider selection will be announced in due course, with no change currently confirmed or denied.

The WorldSSP line-up will change however, as Nacho Calero will step away from racing and take up a position inside the garage and will provide his insight, knowledge and understanding to the team’s riders. Calero’s experience in the WorldSSP paddock will help bring the team on leaps and bounds for 2020, and with plenty of riders on the market in WorldSSP, Orelac Racing VerdNatura look set to have an exciting line-up across all classes.

“We thank Nacho Calero for all the years he has dedicated to this sport, his love, affection, passion, work and effort,” said team owner Jose Calero. “Nacho will remain linked to the motor world, but from now on he will do it from the other side of the box, giving his support to the drivers and the team. After all years lived on the track, he has great wisdom that will come in handy and will be a key piece for the 2020 season.”
