Plassen Roadracing Team and Ole Bjørn Plassen win the Norwegian Superbike championship for Ducati

Ducati's first title success in 2017 comes from Norway, where Ole Bjørn Plassen has triumphed in the local Superbike championship.

The series takes place over five rounds with double-header races at each event and the Ducati team won the title with one round remaining thanks to six wins for Ole Bjørn.

The Norwegian squad raced a Superstock-spec Ducati Panigale R, entered with the assistance of a local dealership, Løvaas Motor AS, where Plassen works as a mechanic. Like all Ducati Corse clients, the Plassen Roadracing Team has been able to count on support from Borgo Panigale to race an always competitive Panigale R.

This win by Plassen in the 2017 championship follows on from the ones obtained in 2010 on a Ducati 1098R and in 2011 on a 1199 Panigale R. 

Congratulations therefore to Ole Bjørn Plassen and the entire Plassen Roadracing Team for yet another victory obtained with Ducati.
