Barni Racing Team and SC-Project together for the WorldSBK 2020 season
The exhaust system made specifically for the Ducati Panigale V4 R Superbike will also be available on the market.
Phillip Island (AUS), 26th February 2020. A very import season is around the corner for Barni Racing Team who will be at the starting block of the 2020 WorldSBK season with a new rider – the Brit Leon Camier – but also with a new exhaust system for the Ducati Panigale V4 R.
SC-Project, a leading company in making of racing exhaust systems, will be a Barni Racing Team’s official partner both in WorldSBK and in the Italian Championship. The Milanese company – headed by Stefano Lavazza and Marco De Rossi – will guarantee a dedicated technical support for the Marco Barnabò’s squad.
The exhaust system, specifically developed for the Superbike version of the Ducati Panigale V4 R, is derived from the SG1-GP kit available for Ducati Panigale V4’s production models and is the direct result of research, development and design work made by the in-house R&D department, in partnership with the major teams of the MotoGP and SBK championship’s teams.
The new SC-Project SG1-GP titanium exhaust has already made its debut in the Jerez and Portimao tests, but SC-Project and Barni Racing Team unveiled in Australia the first evolution with a double „high“ solution, called „4-2-1-2“, which provides two silencers placed laterally under the tail. Both alternatives gave excellent signals during the two days of testing on the Phillip Island track, where next weekend the first round of the WorldSBK World Championship will take place.
