Oli Bayliss Follows In His Father’s Foot Steps Riding For Ducati At World Championship Level.

Australian rider 18-year-old Oli Bayliss will be riding for The Barni Ducati Team in the WorldSSP Championship for the 2022 Season. Oli’s famous father Troy won three WorldSBK titles during his iconic career, having also competed in the MotoGP Championship and winning the British Superbike Championship back in 1999.

Oli’s racing career got going in 2017 riding in the Australian Supersport 300 Class where he ended the season in a solid fourth place in the championship standings. In 2019 he moved up-to the Australian Supersport Class, getting his maiden victory at Phillip Island, he then moved up-to the Superbike Class for 2021, where he won a race at Darwin.

After five-years of racing he is now set to enter the WorldSSP stage for the 2022 season, Troy thinks it’s a great opportunity for his son and hopes he enjoys riding the Ducati V-twin.

“Oli has been brought up around racing, 2021 has been his first year on Ducati V4 R in the ASBK and taking the win in Darwin earlier this year came sooner than we thought, I think the move to Barni Racing Team is a great opportunity, I hope he enjoys the V-twin as much as I did.”

“I’m really happy to announce that I will be racing for Barni Racing Team in the World Supersport Championship on the Ducati Panigale V2. I’ve finished my school program, which means I can now put my focus completely on racing motorbikes, training and only that.”

Marco Barnabo – Team Principal

“In 2022 we want to focus on young talents who can travel along together with us for a while. We want to help young riders to be, in the future, the next Champions both in Supersport and Superbike. That’s why, when the opportunity to sign with Oli for the Supersport World Championship came, we immediately decided to take it in agreement with Ducati. 
“Luca Bernardi is 20-years-old, Oli is 18. We’ve never had such a young team, but I think this is the right time for this choice. For the first time, we’ll be on track with two bikes both in WorldSSP and WorldSBK and at the beginning we won’t focus on results, but only on the growth of these two young riders. We were the first team to believe in bringing Ducati back to Supersport with the Panigale V2, and we’re very proud to see the interest arising around this bike and this Championship.”
