Barberá will debut in SBK with a Kawasaki in Assen's appointment

After breaking with Toth Team after what happened in Aragón, the pilot of Dos Aguas will drive the Kawasaki ZX-10RR of the injured Leandro Mercado, who fell in Aragon.

On Sunday morning at MotorLand's paddock Héctor Barberá announced that he was retiring from the Supersport World Championship due to economic and budgetary differences with his team, the Toth Team. In turn, the team denounced the disappearance of the Yamaha YZF R6 with which the Spaniard must have run in Alcañiz.

With the opposing versions of driver and team, Héctor Barberá has found the good news: will debut in Assen in the World Championship. SBK, since it will be uploaded to the Kawasaki ZX-10RR of Leandro Mercado. The Argentine pilot of the Orelac Racing Verdnatura went to the ground in the first race of Aragon and was operated on a fracture in the scaphoid of the left wrist that will have him off a month.

With the absence of the Argentine Orelac team has thought of Barberá: "It's unpleasant to get on a motorcycle to replace an injured teammate and I send 'Tati' all my support and my strength so that he recovers as soon as possible, and from there, I'll give everything for Orelac Racing Verdnatura, a fully prepared team I think that Superbike is my category ", comments the Valencian to the official website of the championship.

In principle, it will only be a race in which Barberá will pilot the Ninja, since Mercado could be ready for the quote from Imola, although that does not stop the illusion of Spanish: "I have much more in mind a 1000cc motorcycle, with more power. The team meets the conditions and I am very prepared, with some as terrible, life always gives you an opportunity and I am going to take advantage of it. I want to thank José and Nacho Calero because they have made this possible and I hope to return their confidence with a good result ".
