Ducati has lined up a Race of Champions past and present during the 10th World Ducati Week (WDW).

The race is slated to run from 20th to 22nd July 2018, on the historic Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Twelve riders including current works Ducati MotoGP riders Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo, will line up against Troy Bayliss, Marco Melandri, among others. Besides them, Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller will also take part in the race.

By “race,” we meant a real race, as the riders will go through free practice, qualifying and all the way to the podium.

Ducati fans are in for a real treat as all riders will ride specially-prepared and limited-edition Ducati Panigale V4 S.

The World Ducati Week is an annual celebration for Ducati owners. It consists of a myriad of activities to celebrate the Ducati brand, including stunt shows, rides on the track, competitions such as engine disassembly and assembly, Ducatistas parade, Scrambler Village, Monster Village, Ducati Service, DRE Safety Academy, DRE Enduro Academy, Ducati factory and Ducati Museum visit at Borgo Panigale, and much more.
