Jack set to shift to Ducati power next season.

Jack is on the move for 2018, the Australian signing a one-year deal with the Octo Pramac Racing team for next season to ride a Ducati Desmosedici GP bike alongside Italian Danilo Petrucci.

The deal, which had been speculated for some time, was completed at Brno after the Czech Republic Grand Prix last weekend, and announced on the eve of this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring.

The contract is a direct deal with Ducati.

Jack will replace British rider Scott Redding in the Pramac stable, and will ride a GP17 bike next season.
