A new week and new adventures and travels for Ducati Corse Teams.
The Ducati MotoGP Team is currently travelling from Argentina straight to Spain and the Superbike team has come back to Bologna from the Netherlands.
It is non-stop racing for the MotoGP team. This Sunday is the first Spanish race of the season in Jerez de la Frontera. Cal Crutchlow returns having had to skip the Argentinian race following a fall in Texas. Michele Pirro took his place on Termas de Rio Hondo track and this weekend will be back as a wild card in Jerez. Spanish fans are getting ready to celebrate together at the Ducati Grandstand in Jerez, the heart of red passion at the races.

This weekend in Assen, the Ducati Superbike team took home its first podium of the season on a Sunday full of rain and delayed starts. After falling in race 1 Davide Giugliano came back strong in race 2 and finished 3rd even though it was a difficult race because of the rain and the poor condition of the track. "We are very happy with this podium result. It was important for the team, sponsors, fans and helps improve overall team morale" said Giuliano, the 24-year old Roman rider. The next Superbike round is the first SBK race in Italy - a "home" race for Ducati in Imola, only 40 km from Borgo Panigale. There will be a Ducati Grandstand in Imola too, with thousands of excited fans ready as ever to support our heroes on the track.

And let's not forget that in Imola the Superstock 1000 category will be racing as well. This category too was great for Ducati at Assen thanks to Jezek, a Ducati rider from the Barni Racing Team who scored a second place in Sunday race
