Following on from the success of the first DRE event in Abu Dhabi last November, and due to the sheer number of requests from Ducati enthusiasts, the DRE organizers are offering you a second chance to participate in the Ducati Riding Experience / Master Racing Course at the prestigious Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
This special event is restricted to just 54 lucky participants and will take place on the 24th - 25th February 2013 (two one-day sessions).
The Master Racing Course at Yas Marina Circuit will follow the basic structure of the well known Master Racing Course that is currently held during Italian editions of the Ducati Riding Experience,giving participants the chance to ride the company's acclaimed 1199 Panigale Superbike to the limit, all under the expert guidance of Ducati's highly qualified instructors.
But that is not all: track sessions will get underway in the afternoon, with the best part of the DRE taking place at night, thanks to the circuit's floodlighting. A truly unforgettable experience for the lucky participants.
Yas Marina Circuit was unveiled on 30th October 2009 when it hosted the final race of the Formula One World Championship. Yas Marina Circuit is now considered one of the most technologically advanced circuits in the world, and is located in an elegant and polished environmental context. Thanks to its beauty and uniqueness, Yas Marina was chosen as the setting for the 1199 Panigale press launch, and it is on that same asphalt that DRE riders will test the latest version, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S, and experience its incredible levels of performance for themselves.
The total cost of the course (one day session, incl. food & beverages at the track) is USD 2000.
The cost does NOT include travel or lodging. Participants can take advantage of special rates at the prestigious 5 star Yas Viceroy Hotel, situated at the track itself. To book at these special rates, click here.
