Andrea Iannone unveils GoEleven Ducati livery for 2024 WorldSBK

Andrea Iannone is set for a return to racing as he unveiled the new GoEleven Ducati livery for 2024 WorldSBK.

Andrea Iannone has revealed the GoEleven Ducati he will run for 2024 WorldSBK as he marks his first competitive racing season since his suspension for doping violations during the 2019 MotoGP season.

The Italian’s WorldSBK debut in 2024 is just one of many highly publicized topics that are anticipated as the season gets underway on February 22–24 at Phillip Island in Australia.

Iannone is making his racing comeback for the first time in over four years after being temporarily banned for eighteen months in November 2019 due to a positive test result for a prohibited substance.

However, on appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency, his suspension was later extended to four years and remained in effect until November 2023 when he was cleared to race.

Iannone displayed encouraging performances during preseason testing, placing among the top five laptimes on the first day of testing at Portimao despite the fact that he was placed on leave.

“With the race tyres, we are in a good position, we are quite fast,” Iannonne said in Portimao. “It’s possible to improve a little bit and we need to, but the difficulty for me is the track.

“With the race bike, I’ve never ridden here, and it was really difficult because I didn’t have a reference. I had a lot of fun.

“We tried something with the setup, but we’ll receive the 2024 package in Australia and, I’m positive. I signed before we started in this way and on this level.

“Some moments are completely unexpected.”

Now the seasoned racer has revealed the livery he will run for 2024 WorldSBK.

Team Go Eleven will no longer compete in the same colours(white, black and aquamarine blue) for the next three seasons as their Ducati will be sporting yellow colours borrowed from the manufacturer’s unique livery that the factory teams sported in the 2023 WorldSBK and MotoGP races at Misano.

Iannone is among a group of five rookies set to make their WorldSBK debut at Phillip Island this year along with Sam Lowes (Marc VDS Ducati), Nicolo Bulega (Aruba.it Ducati), Tarran Mackenzie and Adam Norrodin (Petonas MIE Racing Honda).
