The eleventh edition of the World Ducati Week, after a four-year absence, returned to bring together Ducatisti and fans of the world of two wheels for three days of passion, fun, and unforgettable experiences at Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli”, has officially come to an end.
The passion for the brand and the desire to be present at the great Ducati gathering attracted many fans to Misano who, despite the difficulties with traveling that still characterize today’s reality, as well as the pandemic and the sweltering temperatures, crowded the paddock reaching 80,000 visitors over the three days.
The participants came from 84 countries, demonstrating the global dimension of Ducati and the appeal that the brand has with motorcyclists worldwide.
The main protagonists of the three days were the 235 Ducati Official Clubs present at the event, which animated the area of the International Village dedicated to them together with all the Ducati subsidiaries.
The success of World Ducati Week was also digital: in the event’s three days, over 6 million impressions were generated on Ducati’s social media channels.
The most keenly awaited moment was undoubtedly the Lenovo Race of Champions, starring 21 Ducati riders competing in the MotoGP, Superbike, Supersport and MotoAmerica championships, who fought it out on standard Panigale V4 S and Panigale V2 bikes, equipped only with slick tires and racing exhausts. A unique show that only Ducati can offer its fans, which saw Pecco Bagnaia triumph after also setting the fastest lap in 1m 35.886s, only two and a half seconds more than the time from this year’s Superbike pole position at Misano. Federico Caricasulo instead took the victory in the Panigale V2 category.
