Randy Krummenacher: New flagship from Yamaha


At the beginning of December, the former supersport champion Randy Krummenacher decided to take a different career path. In 2022, the Swiss will compete in the Endurance World Championship and the Italian Superbike Championship.

On December 3, the surprising news came that Randy Krummenacher and the Italian team CM Ducati would not contest the Supersport World Cup 2022 together after all. Instead, the 31-year-old signed a contract with the Polish team Wojcik Yamaha for the Endurance World Championship, where he will ride an R1 with Dan Linfoot and Sheridan Morais. The team finished last season in 11th place overall, and at the final in Most it made people sit up and take notice with 5th place.

Krummi will compete in all EWC races apart from the Bol d’Or next season. Because the date of the prestigious event in France (17/18 September 2022) collides with a run for the Italian Superbike Championship CIV today.

As reported by SPEEDWEEK.com, Krummenacher has signed a contract with Yamaha Italy for the Campionato Italiano Velocita. The deal with Team Keope has just been officially confirmed. Randy thus becomes the figurehead of the Japanese manufacturer in Italy with which he won the Supersport World Cup in 2019.

“I have to respect that the CIV has priority, that is in the interests of the sponsors of the team and also of Yamaha,” said Krummenacher. “It is important for Yamaha that I compete in the entire Italian Championship because it is aimed at victory or at least for the top positions. I am very excited to be part of this Yamaha and Keope Motor Team project. Thank you for the opportunity and the trust. To be back in a superbike race is a huge incentive for me, also because I’ve always liked it. The CIV is a championship at a high level with very competitive drivers and teams. “

As a teammate, Krummenacher gets the Italian Niccolo Canepa, who has extended his contract by one year. “I am very happy to be able to continue with the Keope Motor Team in 2022,” said the 33-year-old. “Unfortunately, the calendar is not cheap because of the simultaneous World Cup, so we will see in the course of the season which CIV races I can participate in.”
