RACE OF CHAMPIONS: Jorge Lorenzo to take on Troy Bayliss (among others) on a Pangiale V4 S as part of World Ducati Week 2018

Ducati has just announced it’ll be running ‘The Race of Champions’ at this year’s World Ducati Week. Taking place at the Misano World Circuit, twelve renowned Ducati riders are set to go head to head on limited-edition Panigale V4 S motorcycles.

The line-up is set to be a who’s who of top talent – with MotoGP and Superbike riders Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo, Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri set to be in attendance, plus Troy Bayliss will be back on a Ducati to show he’s still got the metal. And best of all, there’s spaces for a limited number of visitors to WDW to experience the excitement of the starting grid.


For the uninitiated, WDW2018, which will take places from 20 to 22 July, will welcome thousands of Ducatisti and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the globe on the Adriatic Riviera and the “Marco Simoncelli” Misano World Circuit. If you’re into your Ducati, there’s probably not better place to be.
