After the trip to Silverstone, where the MotoGP was not able to compete for safety reasons, the next stop on the calendar is Misano, the home circuit of Ducati riders. In fact, no later than a month and a half ago the 10th World Ducati Week took place at this circuit, with an attendance of over 90,000 fans, achieving an unprecedented success. In addition Dovizioso, Lorenzo and Pirro have recently had a day of testing here to better prepare for this important event.
Since problems with the track at Silverstone made it necessary to cancel the race, the current standings still reflect the results of the Czech Republic and Austria where the Desmosedici GP was triumphant with Dovizioso and Lorenzo.
Misano will also see the return of the official test rider Michele Pirro, who just last year was able to pull off a remarkable performance, placing fifth. So keep an eye out for Michele as well, because he is a very fast rider and Ducati's competitiveness in MotoGP is largely the result of his work and skill. Michele is also coming off a victory at the spectacular Race of Champions held at World Ducati Week, which pitted all the Ducati riders against each other on their wonderful Panigale V4s.
At Misano all Ducati riders will be able to enjoy the support of the Ducati Grandstand, and thanks to the string of victories tickets are went sold out during August which means that the stands will be packed with fans wearing Ducati red.
So everyone get ready this weekend to shout #forzaducati!
