Ducati roll out the big guns for Ducati Track Day 2015
With the Aruba.IT World Superbike team in town and a fleet of new 2015 new models on display, Ducati’s 2015 Track Day at Donington Park yesterday was a one day celebration of everything red.
With Ducati riders from Glasgow to Crawley in attendance Donington Park really was seeing red.
We take a look at some of the highlights.
North West 200 Buildbase replica Ducati 1098S was attracting a lot of attention.
No, that’s not Rossi! It’s an incredibly tall man on his Ducati 1199RS. Nice all the same.
Ducati 996S in yellow still cuts a fine shape.
GP legend Niall Mackenzie interviews Factory SBK rider Chaz Davies following his double SBK podium at Donington Park last weekend.
California Superbike School instructor bikes line up ready for the day. They’re also available to hire on Ducati’s track days. A 1299 Panigale will cost you £355, an 899 Panigale is £275, and a Monster 1200 S is available for hire at £255 for the day.
Ducati UK MD Tim Maccabee heads out on a Panigale 899. He's no slouch either.
Not Superpole, but the excitement is still the same as riders wait to hit the track.
Factory Ducati rider Chaz Davies checks out double amputee Murray Hambro’s false legs. He’s riding in the Ducati TriOptions Cup on an 899.
Niall Mackenzie has won too many races at Donington Park to remember, here he takes a few laps on a Hypermotard SP. One of California Superbike School’s pupils gets a Donington Park master class.
Loads of cash in those lids. The excitement builds before the session. You can smell the tension.
It takes all sorts! Ducati Diavel takes to the track as he heads into the Melbourne Loop.
Nice Ducati Darmah 900 was a popular favourite of the day but never made it on to the track. We don’t blame him.
Man of the people – SBK star Chaz Davies gets his pen out to sign autographs.
FANCY A GO?
