The Barni Racing Team has announced Leon Camier will join the outfit for the 2020 FIM Motul Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK).

Camier will ride the Ducati Panigale V4 R, making it his sixth different manufacturer during his WorldSBK career, while he’ll experience his first taste of the bike during the upcoming 13-14 November tests at MotorLand Aragon.

“I am very much looking forward to the new challenge in the next season,” Camier. “I will use all my riding and development skills to achieve top-level results together with Marco and his team.

“They have a close relation to the factory, are a very passionate, engineering-driven group with focus on results and I believe we will work well together. Having said that, my focus now is first to finish the season as strong as possible in Qatar with my current team.”

The British ace departs Moriwaki Althea Honda, the squad’s future uncertain after the Honda Racing Corporation confirmed it will enter an in-house factory team to be spearheaded by Alvaro Bautista.
