Former WorldSBK star Loris Baz will join the MotoAmerica Superbike ranks this season after signing for the Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati New York team.

The Frenchman is aiming for nothing but the big trophy and should be the class of the field when he rolls out for the first round in Georgia at Road Atlanta at the end of April.

“Our only goal is to win, to be honest. I don’t give myself two chance. I just want to win. I don’t go for something else. I know the level is high and I’m not taking it easy when I say I want to win,” said Baz.

“I know what I have to do, and I know how fast I have to ride if I want to win there. It’s a lot of change for me personally and a big risk moving to America and I think I still have my place in World Superbike.

“I want to use this opportunity to win and use it for the future. I’m happy for the opportunity that the team and Ducati and the championship gives me and I will do everything I can to win the championship this year.

“I like the challenge and I never chose the easy way in my life. When I was in World Superbike, I tried everything to be in MotoGP. I like to challenge myself and to try new things.

“If I see it’s not possible going the way I want, I have an open mind and I can go somewhere else. It’s what I’m doing now. I know a little bit the championship, I know the guys, I’ve been following for years and I always watch the races.

“I know a little bit, but I know it will be like when I joined British Superbikes with some crazy tracks… I have everything to learn, but I am looking forward to it.”

We await news from Ten Kate about their 2021 WorldSBK plans.
