The DRE Champs Day, the format designed by Ducati to allow its fans to live a double dream experience, makes its debut at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on Friday 16 July: the opportunity to ride a Panigale on one of the most famous tracks in the world and meet the Ducati riders competing in the Superbike World Championship in person. At Misano there will be Scott Redding and Michael Rinaldi (Aruba.it Racing Team), Michele Pirro (official Ducati test rider), Tito Rabat (Barni Racing Team and Axel Bassani (Motocorsa Racing Team), who will be preparing for the Assen round and will make themselves available for participants in the event.
The package created for the DRE Champs Day includes 3 track riding sessions aboard the Panigale V2 or the Panigale V4 S with experienced DRE instructors who will lead the way. Before starting to have fun on their favourite Ducati bike, participants will have an exclusive opportunity to hear about the secrets of the Misano track directly from Scott Redding and Michael Rinaldi, follow an intervention by Giovanni Crupi, Redding’s track engineer, who will talk about preparation for the race weekend and the set-up work on Scott's bike, and receive a briefing from the technical director of the DRE Racetrack Academy Dario Marchetti.
During the DRE Champs Day there will also be a space dedicated to young riders between 18 and 24 years old with an A2 license with the "DRE Rookie Essentials", a mini version of the proven "DRE Rookie Academy" format, in which the participants will alternate a moment of teaching with some practical exercises carried out in the paddock of the Misano circuit, aimed at improving bike control and riding style. The bikes in the Ducati range available for this activity are the new Monster, the SuperSport 950 and the “800” of the Ducati Scrambler family.
During the same day it will also be possible for anyone (by booking and subject to availability) to take a test ride on the Multistrada V4 S on a route starting from the Misano circuit, designed ad hoc to fully appreciate the quality of the bike, accompanied by a team of Ducati professionals for the duration of the experience. E-bike enthusiasts will be able to discover the performance of the Ducati electric mountain bikes powered by Thok – the TK-01 RR and Mig-S – in an organized tour on the splendid Romagna hills.
