Puccetti Racing Team

Puccetti Racing Team

Based in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team has made impressive progress in recent seasons, winning three Superstock 600 European Championship titles with three different riders as they grew into an international racing force.

Success has kept on coming as they team has recently taken the 2015 and 2016 FIM Supersport World Championship wins with WorldSSP legend Kenan Sofuoglu.

Former racer Manuel Puccetti started his full-time career in team management after the end of his on-track efforts in 2006. Since then he has built his own team from national level to an efficient structure that supports reigning champion Sofuoglu.
 
Switching to Kawasaki in 2007 the Puccetti effort has evolved at an organic, realistic pace, the team’s ambition to succeed putting them on a strong footing as they moved through the ranks in confident stages.
 
Solely a race-team, with no engine tuning or dealership arm, Puccetti has built the most successful 600 Superstock team into WorldSSP leading lights by clever use of resources and a grounded attitude to tackling their next challenge.
 
Sofuoglu is back on board the WorldSSP challenge again while proven race winner Randy Krummenacher moves up to the FIM Superbike World Championship class in 2017, for Puccetti’s first challenge in this division. 
 
Joining Sofuoglu in the official Kawasaki Puccetti Racing WorldSSP team is young British rider Kyle Ryde. Italian youngster Michael Canducci will also ride a Puccetti Racing Junior Team FMI machine. Once again, the wide-ranging Puccetti effort will field Turkish rider Toprak Razgatlioglu in the STK 1000 class.
