"The Race of Champions": top Ducati riders to battle it out on the Panigale V4 S at WDW2018

A few days after Ducati MotoGP and SBK riders confirmed their attendance at WDW2018, another exciting development has made the event more of a must than ever: The Race of Champions. 

On Saturday 21 July Ducati riders will engage in a thrilling challenge at the Misano World Circuit as they go head to head on limited-edition Panigale V4 S motorcycles with a special configuration.
Shortly before the race, aerobatics of Italy's Tricolour Arrows flying over the starting grid will make the event even more breath-taking.

Twelve renowned riders, "Ducati flagbearers" past and present, will compete in an unprecedented challenge: MotoGP and Superbike riders like Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo, Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri will be there, as will first-rate riders like Troy Bayliss who have made Ducati history.

A true competition, from free practice to podium. There will also be the possibility, for a limited number of visitors of WDW, to experience the excitement of the starting grid. Quite a unique event that only Ducati can offer, and which represents one more reason not to miss the tenth edition of the World Ducati Week.
