Ducati announces the inaugural “Ducs Fly South” track day

Not really "Canadian" content but this might be of interest to Ducati fans regardless...


CUPERTINO, CALIF (18 June 2009) – Ducati North America is excited to announce the first annual “Ducs Fly South” track day, which will be held July 13th at New Jersey Motorsports Park. 

Ducs Fly South is the Northeastern United States major Ducati event for the summer. The event will be a great opportunity to experience the thrill of the racetrack together with Ducati and the Penguin School; the nation's oldest motorcycle roadracing school. The Penguin School will have a special staff lined up for this event to provide both top level instruction and premium entertainment. The event is open to street riders of all levels and available to riders on any make of motorcycle.

Highlights of the event include:­



Ducati Hypermotard Truck
– This tractor trailer houses Ducati Hypermotards on which instruction and demo rides will be provided all day long. The truck will be the gathering place for product giveaways, a ‘Best Bike’ contest, test rides, and a suspension seminar. Cold Red Bull will be available throughout the day to keep riders energized.

Larry Pegram – The factory Ducati AMA Superbike rider will be on hand to celebrate his recent victory at Road America.  Larry will be available for autographs and a special question and answer session about his Ducati 1098 R Superbikes.

Ferrari-Ducati Showdown – Boasting a showroom filled with pre-owned Italian sports cars such as Ferraris, Maseratis and Lamborghinis; Universal Autosports is host to a staff highly experienced with exotic road and race cars. Universal Autosports is bringing three Ferrari Challenge cars that will be running on the track, which will compete against each other for the fastest lap. Immediately following the hot lap competition, professional Ducati instructors and racers will mirror this contest on Ducatis. The Challenge car driver and Ducati rider with the fastest laps will go head to head in a winner-takes-all race.

Track Experience
:

 This unique event combines the safe, comfortable environment of a track day with the opportunity for individual instruction for riders at every level.  Two of the three riding groups will have passing restrictions, making for a comfortable place to ride for all participants. 

There will be ample opportunity for instruction, and a rider may participate in as many of the classes as they like.  Classes will be offered between the riding sessions covering topics like line selection, corner strategy, braking techniques, corner speed analysis, body position, bike setup and more.

The event will also offer individual instruction for riders; which combined with great food, a bike show, and a track photographer shooting all day makes for an event to remember.
