Superbike - Clementi included in 19-strong field

Ivan Clementi’s entry to World Superbikes has been confirmed with only 19 full-time riders in 2013.

Seven Italian riders, five Brits and three Frenchmen will feature but the field of 19 is five less than last year.

There are six manufacturers with BMW, Kawasaki and Aprilia holding two factory and two privateer entries apiece while Ducati has three bikes and Suzuki and Honda have two.

There are two new teams in the shape of MR Racing, fielding Max Neukirchner, and HTM Racing with Clemtini on a BMW S1000RR.

There are also four Brits in the 35-strong Supersport field.

The season kicks off at Phillip Island in Australia on February 24.
