Sandi joins Lundh at Pedercini Kawasaki
Alexander Lundh and Federico Sandi will represent Pedercini Kawasaki in the 2013 World Superbike Championship.
The 23-year-old Sandi gets a fulltime SBK deal having made three appearances as a wild card in the 2011 season and another one at San Marino last year.
The Italian said: "I'm very pleased of the agreement reached with the Pedercini family. We both want to get good results and their bikes are undoubtedly competitive. I'm finally taking part to a full World Superbike season and that is a good boost for me.
"I want to bear fruit of my previous experiences made in different series and classes and my goal is to be consistently in the top-10, even though there are a lot of factory riders and machines in Superbike. I'm happy to be testing at Jerez by the end of January and after that at Phillip Island. I need some track-time to get comfortable with both team and bike. I can't wait until the start of the season."
Lundh, 26, made his SBK debut with the team during the latter half of last season, starting six races and scoring four points.
"I'm really happy to remain in the Superbike championship with the Pedercini Team. My first experience in this fascinating and competitive championship was unforgettable and I will try my best to improve the results I got so far. Last year I immediately got acquainted with the entire Pedercini family.
"They are reputable professionals and we are on the same wavelength about next year's targets. I'm eager to ride my Kawasaki ZX10R in the Jerez test scheduled at the end of January and I'm determined to put a good season together."
