2016 World Ducati Week Schedule Announced

The ninth annual World Ducati Week will take place July 1-3, 2016, at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli racetrack in the Italian Riviera. The 2014 event attracted some 65,000 Ducatisti, and this year could set a new record, repeating the ‘red invasion’ of this popular vacation destination.

This massive gathering of Ducati faithful, or Ducatisti, offers a chance to immerse yourself in all things Ducati, from apparel to demo rides to two-up rides with Troy Bayliss and Ruben Xaus to the Scrambler Land of Joy. And of course, there will be bikes, bikes and more bikes, including a sneak peek at upcoming 2017 models.

Highlights are sure to include the first ever Scrambler Ducati Flat Track Race by TIM, with Ducati racers Dovizioso, Giugliano, Bayliss, Petrucci, Hernandez, Valia, Mercado and Xaus battling it out on the new Scrambler Flat Track Pro on the 1,000-meter Misano Circuit oval, and Saturday’s Drag Race by Shell, where racers will go head to head on Diavel Carbon bikes, down the main straight of Misano. The contenders will include Stoner, Iannone, Dovizioso, Capirossi, Davies, Laconi, Redding and Barbera – but there can only be one winner!
