After two competitive seasons in World Supersport, German rider Philip Oettl joins Team GoEleven in World Superbikes

Another rookie will join the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship grid in 2022 with Germany’s Philipp Oettl joining Team GoEleven for the next two seasons following his two years in World Supersport. Oettl has been a regular podium contender in the Supersport class, having scored 11 podiums and one pole position. He will hope to continue showing his pace as he makes the step up to WorldSBK next season.

Oettl is a former Moto 3 and Moto 2 rider, in Moto 3 he made his debut in 2013 and took his first podium at the 2015 Indianapolis Grand Prix, finishing in third place. He then went one place better at the 2017 Austrian Grand Prix and then took his first and only victory in the 2018 Spanish Grand Prix with his highest championship position being tenth in 2017. His Moto 2 career was less to be desired as he didn’t score any points with his best finish being in the US Grand Prix where he finished 18th.

He then moved to the Superbike paddock in 2020 joining the Pucetti Racing Team and he took his first rostrum at the Pirelli Spanish Round at Jerez where he finished in third place. The German then took two more third place finished at Aragon and Catalunya. Then at the last round of the season, Oettl took a best finish of second in race one at Estoril, ending the season in third place.

His 2021 season campaign has also been strong, scoring seven podiums over the season and also taking his maiden pole position at Jerez and he will be looking to end his time in World Supersport and the Puccetti Racing Team with a maiden win in Indonesia, he currently sits in fifth place in the standings.

I am very happy that after two successful seasons in the World Supersport Championship, I can make the step to WorldSBK with GoEleven! I hope that I can learn fast, I think that this is possible with a good group of people, and with GoEleven I have all the possibilities to achieve good results. From the outside, GoEleven was my desired Team, almost from the beginning of the 2022 deals. I can’t wait to start this experience on the big bike, to learn as much as possible, to start next season and to improve Round by Round. I am happy to ride the Ducati, it’s a great manufacturer and I really wanted this opportunity in Superbike, especially considering the successful past Ducati had!

Denis Sacchetti, Team Manager at Team GoEleven

Philipp achieved very good results in the last two seasons in Supersport, he is young and already has experience in Moto2™ and Moto3™, then, after having met him personally he gave me excellent sensations. He is a very determined rider and already has a good working method, certainly transmitted by his father Peter, great protagonist of the past of motorcycling; this is certainly an added value, which will help both us and him. This project gives me great excitement, it is certainly an amazing challenge, I can’t wait to see him on our V4 R and start working with him. At GoEleven we are all happy to have him with us, it reflects a bit our philosophy, to believe in young people and give them an opportunity to show their potential in the main category. Philipp has amply demonstrated that he deserves the top class of the World Superbike!

Giovanni Ramello, Team Owner

The GoEleven Team, with the entry of Oettl, is back on its path and in its DNA, a young rider and a programme over several years that will allow us to grow together and try to achieve good results. I always followed Oettl’s performances since he was in WorldSSP and I must say that many times he impressed me positively for the grit, the riding style and the strong competitiveness he has always put in every race. We will try to do everything possible to maintain the high level of performance of the bike and be able to demonstrate our skills; we must do the races with the spirit of GoEleven, professionalism but also moments of fun. I am convinced that without particular pressures Oettl, will be able to make us appreciate his skills and excite us at every race, also reaping the benefits of the great experience gained over the years, despite the young age. I wish him to finish the World Supersport Championship with excellent results and I can’t wait to get back to work for 2022!
