2024 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship Entry List Confirmed

In what is already set to be a thrilling 2024 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship season, the provisional entry lists across the WorldSBK and WorldSSP Championships have now been revealed.

 

With 23 riders confirmed in World Superbikes, and 32 riders confirmed in World Supersport / World Supersport Challenge – the 2024 season opener taking place at Phillip Island Circuit on the 23rd to 25th of February will be one of the most exciting yet!

 

Australian talent will be flourishing across the paddock, with Remy Gardner confirmed for World Superbikes as he takes on his second year with the GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team.

 

It has also been confirmed that young-gun Oli Bayliss will be continuing his World Supersport campaign, confirming today he will be continuing in the Championship with D34G Racing.

Oli Bayliss: “I’m very excited to be racing for D34G Racing again in the World Supersport Championship. I feel like last year I didn’t get to show my speed due to some injuries and unlucky moments. I really enjoyed being with these guys and I’m happy to be going around the clock one more time to show how fast we can be.  A big thank you to all of my sponsors, supporters and the D34G team for giving me this opportunity. Bring one round one at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit at the end of February.

 

But, the Australian line-up doesn’t stop there!

 

Riders competing in the World Supersport Challenge focuses exclusively on the European Rounds of the Championship, which will see further Australian representation lining up on the World Supersport grid in 2024.

 

Luke Power and Tom Edwards will continue their strong pursuit in the World Supersport Challenge – with both riders completing an impressive season in the Challenge in 2023, each scoring race wins.

 

For Tom Edwards; he will be joining fellow Aussie Oli Bayliss as his teammate, today announcing he has signed for the D34G Racing team, taking to the grid on the Ducati Panigale V2 in 2024.

 

Edwards finished the 2023 season second overall in the World Supersport Challenge, and was also the highest ranking rider within the Challenge claiming 4th in Superpole in Catalunya, and finished with 26 points in World Supersport.

Tom Edwards: “I’m very excited to be joining the D34G Racing Team next season and to be staying in the WorldSBK paddock. I made a lot of progress towards the end of the last season, and I’m looking forward to keeping that momentum going. I’m confident that the team and I will work well together and be competitive. It’ll be great to be under the leadership of team owner Davide Giugliano with all his experience. I can’t wait to get on the V2 and test it out in the new year, I think it’ll really suit my riding style. I’d like to thank Davide, the D34G team, my sponsors and my supporters for the opportunity.”

 

Luke Power is set to continue with the Motozoo ME AIR Racing Team in 2024, with the announcement that the Victorian rider has signed a two-year deal with the team as they switch from Kawasaki machinery to the MV Augusta.

 

His maiden season in World Supersport saw a strong progression up the ranks, and while he was the youngest rider on the grid in 2023, he made sure to solidify his spot as a World Supersport contender. The teenager scored his first world championship point at the iconic Imola circuit, and further took a maiden WorldSSP Challenge win at Magny-Cours in France.

“I am excited and happy to announce that I will remain with the Motozoo ME AIR Racing team for the next two season. After a challenging but positive first year in the world championship the decision to continue with the team was easy. They are like family, and we worked really well together this year and I look forward to continuing to push myself with these guys. I am also really excited to ride an MV Agusta, a brand that has so much history in our sport and a bike that has been competitive in World Supersport this season. I want to thank my sponsors, the team, my family, and my manager for making it possible to continue in the World Superbike paddock, where everyone is so professional, and the level is so high. It is the best decision for my career, and I am really motivated and ready for this new adventure.”
