DUCATI POWERS UP SILVERSTONE BIKE TRACK DAYS05 May 2022
Silverstone is delighted to announce a new partnership with the famed Italian bike manufacturer, Ducati. The two iconic brands are joining forces to present Silverstone Bike Track Days powered by Ducati.
A fleet of 20 Panigale V4 2022 will be the machinery of choice for Silverstone’s experienced team of instructors to use at the track days. The instructors will demonstrate the performance capabilities of this 2022 machine throughout the track days riding the bikes for sighting laps, accompanying new riders and providing 1 to 1 tuition. They will be showcasing arguably the most desirable new Ducati model on track and sharing their expert knowledge of the Panigale V4 with attendees off track.
This partnership will culminate in the Ducati Riding Experience Race Track Academy, training courses that give expert Ducati tuition for those that want to enjoy the thrill of the track. Details and date will be announced in due course.
The new Panigale V4 is the latest evolution of the Ducati sports bike, continuously improved from the experience gained on the racetrack in MotoGP and WorldSBK. The heart of the bike is the 1,103 cm3 MotoGP-derived engine delivering 215.5hp. Improvements to aerodynamics, ergonomics, engine chassis and electronics has produced a more intuitive, faster bike, less demanding, offering a rewarding experience for all levels of rider.
