The Race of Champions

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Tuesday July 17 2018

Top Ducati riders to battle it out on the Panigale V4 S at WDW2018.

A few days after Ducati MotoGP and SBK riders confirmed their attendance at WDW2018, another exciting development has made the event more of a must than ever: The Race of Champions.

On Saturday 21 July Ducati riders will engage in a thrilling challenge at the Misano World Circuit as they go head to head on limited-edition Panigale V4 S motorcycles with a special configuration.

Shortly before the race, aerobatics of Italy's Tricolour Arrows flying over the starting grid will make the event even more breath-taking.

Twelve renowned riders, "Ducati flagbearers" past and present, will compete in an unprecedented challenge: MotoGP and Superbike riders like Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo, Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri will be there, as will first-rate riders like Troy Bayliss who have made Ducati history.

A true competition, from free practice to podium.

There will also be the possibility, for a limited number of visitors of WDW, to experience the excitement of the starting grid.

Quite a unique event that only Ducati can offer, and which represents one more reason not to miss the tenth edition of the World Ducati Week.

From 20 to 22 July, World Ducati Week 2018 will welcome thousands of Ducatisti and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the globe on the Adriatic Riviera and the “Marco Simoncelli” Misano World Circuit.

Advance sales of passes have already started.

To ensure your place at WDW2018 there are several purchase options: for full details please go to wdw.ducati.com.

Regular updates before and during the event are broadcasted via the new Official WDW App of World Ducati Week 2018.
