Scott Redding will be making his debut in the production-based WorldSBK in 2020 after a five-year presence in MotoGP and one year in BSB. He will be racing a Ducati Panigale V4 R for the Aruba.it Racing Team by replacing Álvaro Bautista.
Scott is a talented rider. He is 26-years-old and hails from Quedgeley (Gloucestershire). He is currently racing in the BSB (British Superbike Championship) and so far has taken six wins and five pole positions and is in second place in the overall standings.
In the 2020 WorldSBK, Scott will join up with the already confirmed Chaz Davies, who next year will be embarking on his seventh successive season on a Ducati, thus forming a very strong all-British rider formation.
Álvaro Bautista’s adventure with the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team thus comes to an end on the 26th October at the Losail circuit in Qatar. With four rounds still to be held (Portugal, France, Argentina and Qatar), the 34-year-old Spanish rider, who made his Superbike debut this year with the all-new Panigale V4 R, currently lies second in the championship with 352 points and has so far won 14 races, taking the Bologna bike to victory in its and his debut race at Phillip Island and then adding the next ten races to his victory tally.
