Ducati Track Days Announced for Donington Park & Silverstone
Ducati UK will host two track days on the full circuits of both Silverstone and Donington this summer.
The track events will be conducted with the assistance of California Superbike School, who will be there to provide expertise and guidance as well as monitor track activity.
The first track day on May 26 will take place at the world famous Donington Park Circuit, scene of Ducati’s first ever World Superbike win. Special guests of the day will be Ducati Team Superbike riders, Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano along with Ducati Corse’s Superbike Technical Director, Ernesto Marinelli. Participants at Donington 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 (May 26) and Silverstone (July 28) track days will be ‘noisy’ (105db) days and will take place on the full GP circuits priced at £175. Breakfast and lunch is included in the price at Donington and at Silverstone.
A unique feature of Ducati track days will be the chance to hire a Ducati to ride on track.
