Ducati Track Day For Avid Bikers
Malaysians love to holiday in the UK. Well, if you are an avid biker and have time while on holiday in the UK, take note of this as Ducati UK will host two track days on the full circuits of both Silverstone and Donington Park this coming May to August 2014. The track events are in association with Ducati’s new partner, California Superbike School, who will be there to provide expert tips and guidance as well as monitor track activity. The first track day on May 27 will take place at the famous Donington Park Circuit, scene of Ducati’s first ever World Superbike win. Here Ducati UK will welcome Ducati Team Superbike riders, Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano along with Ducati Corse’s Ernesto Marinelli. Participants at Donington Park will have the chance to meet the riders and talk to Ernesto Marinelli, gaining a real insight from those at the heart of the Ducati Panigale World Superbike programme.
Both the Donington Park and Silverstone track days will be ‘noisy’ (105db) days and will take place on the full GP circuits priced at £165. Breakfast and lunch is included in the price at Donington Park and at Silverstone there will be a £10 food voucher for use at the Paddock Café on site.
A unique feature for this year’s track days will be the chance to hire a Ducati to ride on track. If you don’t want to take your own pride and joy on track or would like to test ride a Ducati in a controlled environment then there is an opportunity to hire the new Monster 1200, the acclaimed 899 Panigale or the flagship 1199 Panigale.
The new 135hp Monster 1200 features the 1198 11° Testastretta engine, the versatility of three riding modes and the Ducati Safety Pack (Ducati Traction Control and ABS) and can be hired for £249 for the day.*
The acclaimed 899 Panigale delivers the 145hp from the superquadro engine with incredible lightness and agility and features Ducati Traction Control (DTC) riding modes and Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) and can be hired for the day for £269.*
The supreme 1199 Panigale is also available to hire, the stunning 1199 Panigale oozes performance appeal with a 195hp from the superquadro engine. Also featuring DTC, ABS, DQS and riding modes the 1199 Panigale will be available to hire for £349 for the day.*
