Irishman to remain in WorldSBK on all new Panigale V4 R

Team Go Eleven have announced some big changes for 2019, as the Italian team will make the switch to Ducati with Eugene Laverty taking on the all new Panigale V4 R machine. The news will come as a relief to Laverty, who was left looking for a ride at the end of the season.

Joining an experienced team like Go Eleven, they will be a force to be reckoned with for 2019 as Laverty brings across his 131 WorldSBK race starts and 35 podiums across three different manufactures. Teaming up with support from Ducati is a valuable asset to have next season, as a new era begins with a new bike for the Bologna based factory.

Laverty explains his thoughts ahead of the upcoming season: “I’m delighted to join Team Go Eleven to ride the new Ducati Panigale V4 R in 2019. The past five weeks has been a stressful period so it’s great to secure a competitive seat in the end. The support from Ducati is reassuring and I’m confident that we will have a package to fight for victory next season. Thank you to Denis Sacchetti and everyone at Team Go Eleven for putting their trust in me.”
