The world of MotoGP is all about the very best of performance and innovation. This is why Ducati Team has signed a new multi-year technical partnership with tech expert, Altair. The global tech firm specialises in product development, high-performance computing (HPC), and data analytics which will help greatly in Ducati’s racing division, Ducati Corse.
With a race machine that can go over 350km/h, each and every competitive edge is vital for success in racing which is why Ducati will be utilising Altair and its performance-proven computer-aided engineering (CAE) software for product development.
The corporation between Ducati and Altair has been going on for quite a while but this new technical partnership will further expand their efforts in developing the Ducati Desmosedici GP to even greater heights, especially in fluid dynamics, weight optimization, structural optimization, vehicle dynamics, and advanced powertrain technology.
According to Luigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse general manager, “We are delighted to welcome Altair as a Ducati Corse technical partner for the start of the 2020 MotoGP season. Strengthening the team’s partnership with an industry leader in advanced CAE and simulation will help extend our technology leadership in the fastest, most demanding motorcycle racing environment on the planet.”
James Scapa, Altair’s chief executive officer and founder, stated “Altair is all about empowering talented and visionary engineers to deliver innovation and excellence. In this respect, the synergy with Ducati Corse is perfect. This new agreement means we can forge an even closer relationship through our software and consultancy to support the Ducati Corse engineering team as it transforms bold concepts into race-winning performances.”
