British Superbike youngster Ryan Vickers made his WorldSBK debut with TPR Team Pedercini at Most with a best finish of 17th.

There was a lot for FHO BMW rider to learn, but the team are pleased with the way he conducted himself and thank him for his efforts at a circuit and on a bike that was completely new to him.

“It was a really enjoyable first day and I really enjoyed my first laps on a WorldSBK Kawasaki. It was a big change getting back onboard a Kawasaki and a Kawasaki that is a completely new spec to anything I have ever ridden before,” said Vickers.

“The electronics too were new to me, but the team were great and really took their time to help me. I needed to ride in a completely different way, and it’s been great to be able to chat to Jonathan (Rea) to help me in this area.

“I had two silly little crashes but at the end of the weekend overall I adapted well. I went faster in most sessions and ended just two places from scoring a world championship point. I want to thank Lucio TPR Team Pedercini, they have been so welcoming and to Guim, and Johnny (Rea) and KRT for all of their help.

“It was also a lot of fun being on the paddock show and meeting so many fans. It’s been a great experience and I have loved it. I’ve learned a lot and I can hopefully put it into use again on the world stage in the future.”
