Two-wheel thrill
Ducati dares
As the start of World Ducati Week approaches, news has it that it’s going to be an incredible show.

20.07.2014 - One of the many initiatives that are being organised for the thousands of fans ready to invade Romagnola’s Riviera district and the Misano World Circuit is the Drag Race.  It’s a real adrenaline booster and, for the very first time, WDW participants will be able to enjoy a double dose of the Drag Race, hosted over July 18 and 19.

The showdown is set to be a true battle of speed, going from standstill to the finish line, 400 metres down the straight, and this time the race is open to current Ducati competition riders as well as living legends from the world of motorcycle racing who were connected with the successful track record of the red bikes from ‘Borgo Panigale’.

After the warm up, including the practice sessions and qualifying round, things will get serious during head-to-head racing on the 162hp DIAVEL CARBON.  Kitted out especially for the occasion in Drag Race livery, higher performance is ensured thanks to the complete set of Termignoni exhausts.

See: website for the full, impressive list of those who will take the Ducati challenge.
